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.

Salut

Je viens de réinstaller Calculate Linux en veillant bien à cocher la case "actualiser les autres overlays", puis j'ai fait ce que tu m'as dit.

Tout s'est installé normalement mais la commande cat /proc/acpi/bbswitch renvoie "Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type". Après le redémarrage de…

You can install the virtualbox package and virtualbox-modules and virtualbox-additions and the virtualbox-extpack-oracle.

So

12/10 - RE: updater failure - ValueError:I/O operation on closed file(pexpect.__init__:493) (Dirk Zuechner)

Yes, the terminal script worked just fine and also asked for the unmerge function.

Hopefully this was just a single hickup ;-)

Thanks a lot for your help

12/10 - RE: updater failure - ValueError:I/O operation on closed file(pexpect.__init__:493) (Adrien Daugabel)

Hi,
Can you try to update in console ?

cl-update

Do you have the same error ?

12/10 - updater failure - ValueError:I/O operation on closed file(pexpect.__init__:493) (Dirk Zuechner)

Hi there,

the calculate updater shows updates available and when it check after openeing it fails to check dependencies and I get also the failure message :

ValueError:I/O operation on closed file(pexpect.init:493)

after it.

Any help ;-)

Thanks

Dirk

Salut,

Désolé, j'arrive en retard ....
L'article Linuxtricks mériterait un peu de rafraîchissement :D

Qu'est ce qui ne fonctionne pas ?

Est-ce que tu peux essayer d'installer mon overlay (adrien-overlay) et de suivre le tuto ? (le bumblebee a un correctif)

En root pour ajouter mon overl…

Thank you!
