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.

Canon printheads are separate from the tanks and can usally be removed for cleaning.

Lift the top cover of the printer. Flip the inner cover down until it meets the paper output tray.

Lift up on each ink cartridge tank to remove them from the cartridge holder. Set the cartridges on one side so…

01/22 - RE: install fails on 2 different laptops with mmcblk devices (nate liv)

Usually /dev/mmcblk0 is the SD card slot on a laptop, and usually you cannot boot from that unless it is internally USB connected, in which case it would NOT be /dev/mmcblk0. If you have a card inserted in that slot, remove it. If your laptop is capable of booting from that slot, check boot order in…
