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.

Antonyo,

after emerging you need to add the service to default runlevel

# rc-update add cpupower default
# rc-update add laptop_mode default

and/or start the services by hand without reset

# /etc/init.d/cpupower
# /etc/init.d/laptop_mode

I don't remember an…

Is there anything you did after emerging cpupower? Did you need to delete or adjust any config files?

Hi Marek,
Thanks for the suggestion. In the near future we'll see.

09/16 - cpupower vs cpufrequtil (Marek Matej)

Hi folks,

on my T430s I was trying to get better battery life. Finally I was successful, thanks to Arch forums https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=135820 . (the right solution for me was: i915 kernel cmdline options + laptop-mode-tools + cpupower).

With cpufrequtils package installed …

Or just run these commands first, before install:

sed -ie 's/ID_TYPE/DEVTYPE/g' /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/calculate/install/variables/disk.py
sed -ie 's/ID_TYPE/DEVTYPE/g' /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/calculate/lib/utils/device.py

P.S. Bump!

Salut,

Une réponse rapide ... Effectivement comme je te le disais plus haut, la gestion de Flash passant par le driver de la carte graphique, il y a de forte chance que la nouvelle version de Flash et du pilote spécifique à ton GPU soit aléatoire.

En attendant un dépannage, essaie de passer pa…

09/15 - Personnaliser son kernel (Adrien Daugabel)

Bonjour,

L'outil cl-kernel n'existant plus, je cherche à savoir comment personnaliser le kernel de Calculate Linux et que ce soit persistant en cas de mise à jour évidemment.

Comment puis-je m'y prendre ?

Merci

Le problème se pose à nouveau.

Quand il se pose, je ne peux pas non plus lancer d'applications "optirun" :

cl-setup-boot was not necessary. When you emerge calculate-sources, grub settings automatically updating

09/12 - RE: Explain it like I'm stupid - Kernel upgrade (Antonyo Hutsona)

Thanks for everyone's help. Should anyone come in the future come across this this is what I did

  1. eix-sync
  2. echo "=sys-kernel/calculate-sources-3.16.2" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords/custom
  3. cl-update
  4. cl-setup-boot

Thank you!
