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.

Iurii,

thanks for pointing this out.
Did chroot, and replaced udev with eudev and now everything works again.
I probably missed the fact that eudev is replacement for udev.
Many thanks!

PS: I appreciated the help from great community of Calculate Linux - always helpful!

You can try boot from live-usb, mount your root-dev to some directory, chroot to this directory and then install eudev if it not installed.

Hi folks,

I did update my system yesterday. I had some troubles updating, specially with some perl modules (5.18-5.20) and udev, eudev conflicts - I remove old udev first, but I remeber that it was installed later. So I managed this and emerge world works fine.

After the reboot I'm stuck at lo…

Firefox (though I heartily hate it :D), Dwb and Uzbl. The latter would suit me the best, if it were not buggy and unsupported since long back...

03/03 - RE: How to uncomment the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS lines in your /etc/make.conf file (Elena Gavrilova)

Hello John,

Just edit the /etc/portage/make.conf/custom file: you can add any flag you need (including CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS).

Hope this helps.
