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.

09/01 - RE: [openldap] nss_ldap failed to bind to LDAP (Sylvain Bonnemaison)

After starting ldap manually, slaptest works fine.

/usr/lib/openldap/slapd -f /etc/openldap/slapd.conf -d 255

But I still have the same errors in messages log file. I understand that ldap is not start by systemd as a service.

09/01 - RE: [openldap] nss_ldap failed to bind to LDAP (Sylvain Bonnemaison)

The system is using systemd. Many services cannot start.

09/01 - RE: problem with eix-sync command (Iurii Blokhin)

It seems that the dns server for some reason does not know the server git.calculate.ru.
You can try to specify the dns server from google - 8.8.8.8 in your network settings, or specify git.calculate.ru in /etc/hosts

85.235.195.146 git.calculate.ru

Are you using systemd? nss_ldap error should not affect the ability to login.

It my fault.
"make.conf" contains two USE flags lines (last was wrong).

Hi,

Since last system update, /etc/portage/make.conf has no effect on configuration. USE flags are not applyied.
How can it be?

Thanks

08/26 - RE: Cannot re-install distros overlay (Sylvain Bonnemaison)

I solve it by using cl-update-profile command and providing the distros overlay url as url parameter.

Thank you!
