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.

Thank you for your reply and help

I have tried Renaming which has made no difference....still only runs OK with no sandbox........This Laptop is 32bit and i read somewhere this was an issue in 2012 I think with Chromium,and 32 bit pcs had ssues with sandboxes.
I have tried installing Qupzilla …

02/21 - RE: Fresh install - wont boot (jack layton)

You are right. Later, I did the some test (setting dos partition) and it works out the box. What I meant to say, is that with all the default options, the installer choses a GPT partition scheme that does not work out of the box in old hardware. If Calculate wants to become more widespread in my opi…

It's strange that the installer did not set the partition's activity. I have tested system install in virtualbox with dos partition table and partition activity was set correctly.

Hi Chris,
chromium-64.0.3282.167 and opera-51.0.2830.34 work for me. Try to run without user settings, previously renaming ~/.config/chromium and ~/.config/opera

Are there packages for that kernel or you had to use ebuild (compile)?

For a fresh kernel version, there is also a binary package.

02/19 - After update Browsers crash (chris whittaker)

Ran Cl-update earlier and now have 2 browsers Chromium and Opera that just crash on opening.....well They open and do nothing else.

I ran them boot from terminal and the crash reports are in the attached file

Had to drive into office to post this as I have no internet access.......Clementi…

02/18 - RE: Fresh install - wont boot (jack layton)

I've solved the problem. The thing is that two systems I've tried Calculate on are old (around 8 years - Q6700 quad core - 8GB ram) so the BIOS has trouble to recognize the boot partition. I found the solution in Gentoo handbook.

02/17 - Fresh install - wont boot (jack layton)

Hello,
I am a long time gentoo user. I am trying calculate for the first time. So, I downloaded the cldm-17.12-x86_64.iso, I loaded into a usb key and I installed without hassle using all the default options. I haven't changed a single tick mark. I have to mention that I wiped out my 500GB entir…
