What is… Calculate Linux?

slide show

You can learn about Linux ® here.
The Calculate project features several distributions, optimized for two distinct groups of people: home users as well as small and medium businesses that prefer open-source to proprietary solutions.

Calculate Linux Desktop is a complementary solution for the Server and together they provide important features like roaming profiles and centralized software deployment.

Calculate Directory Server can successfully replace a Windows NT ® domain controller (Windows clients supported) and provides additional services that can be deployed in a matter of minutes: LDAP, Mail, Jabber and many others.

Calculate Linux is based on Gentoo that is well known for its stability and great performance on a broad range of hardware: from Pentium Pro to modern CPUs.

Why make another distribution?

Most of the modern Linux distributions are intended for enthusiasts, except Novell SLES/SLED, Ubuntu and RedHat EL. However, even if you use these, setting up a client/server environment could be tricky (especially when you have to manage both Windows and Linux clients). We created our own distribution to help other people who want to use GNU/Linux instead of a proprietary OS for their business needs.

Bon, je ne vois pas ce qui coince.
Il me faudrait le contenu du fichier log qui est en echec (par exemple '/var/calculate/tmp/portage/dev-libs/check-0.12.0/temp/build.log')

01/17 - RE: full disk encryption supported? (Herminio Hernandez)

Thanks for the response. I have needs for full disk encryption. Thankfully I was able to get that to work with Calculate. I had make changes to grub to and to the initrd image via dracut, but it is working!

Hi !
Try to run the
cl-setup-boot
command to do the boot again.

The cleaner is to install again your disribution, because the installer look the actual config and optimize some settings.

01/16 - RE: full disk encryption supported? (Alexander Tratsevskiy)

Hi Herminio,
The CL supports the encryption of user files. This is done for maximum performance and ease of use, because the user's password also decrypts its files.

01/16 - full disk encryption supported? (Herminio Hernandez)

I would like to does calualte linux support full disk encryption? I went through the installer and did not see an option for that. Did I miss something or it is just not set up for that?

Thanks!

Thank you!
