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.

Hello:
1. For 32-bit systems you should use x86 and non i686 (although I can be wrong). Therefore in the write files /etc/portage/package.keywords/custom (you look out you must have the sign =) =net-print/cnijfilter-4.00 ~x86 (this is to unmasked)
2. edit file /etc/portage/package.use/custom and a…

First of all I wish to say thank you to you once again for the big effort you doing to help me.

01/28 - RE: What's the best way to update xorg-server? (Сергей Федотов)

Why would I move /usr/share/calculate/xdm/login.d/*
This folder contains login scripts (non-critical for non-domain users). These scripts use calculate-utilities(depend on Python). Thus, if there is a problem with Python, it can let us know.

01/28 - RE: Trouble with chromium and updates (Carlos Hurtado)

these three packages are uninstalled and blocked (masked). However the update fails because I must unmask.

01/28 - RE: Trouble with chromium and updates (Alexander Tratsevskiy)

To find out who needs this package, run:

equery d chromium

This is a www-apps/chromium-adblock or www-apps/chromium-ublock.
Remove this extension with the browser:

emerge -C chromium chromium-adblock chromium-ublock
