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.

Hi Fernando,
Is the mount points list empty?

I tried Bumblebee on Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse Leap 42.2 and on MX16 nothing works, so I am not interested anymore in wasting more time in bumblebee, reminds me too much on Micro$oft Windows the time thief.

Hi there,

just wondering if Calculate has a solution like Xubuntu or Solus, where you can install the Nvidia Prime driver and by pass the whole hassle to get bumblebee running.

I don't want or need to switch back and forward and would be happy to just install the Nvidia prop. drivers.

Thank…

06/21 - Graphical installer doesn't detect my partitions list? (Fernando Negro)

Hello everyone.

So, I've tried installing CLDX 17 with a live DVD, but when I get to the "mount points" part, I can't see any of my partitions listed.

I'm using a GPT in my disk, in a laptop with a legacy BIOS. And so, I have a very small "BIOS boot partition" to make this work. And, in both D…

Thank you!
