Calculate Linux

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.

Apparently all the available versions of dev-python/certifi are EAPI=6, and that's needed in order to update portage in order to... install EAPI6 packages. Apparently the EAPI=5 versions were removed yesterday.
I don't know the correct way to solve this, but considering that package is very si…

02/18 - RE: Shortcuts is not working (billal dahman)

With Sticky Keys enabled, when you need to use Ctrl+Alt+Del shortcut, you don't have press all the three buttons all at once. Instead, you can press Ctrl, then Alt, and then Del to activate the shortcut. If keyboard shortcuts stop working, disabling sticky keys may help to fix the problem.

02/18 - adding keyboard shortcuts doesn't work on v18.12 cinamon (yomgui oim)

I choose: system settings/keyboard/shortcuts/Sound and Media/Volume mute.
In the keyboard bindings frame, I select the first line marked as "unassigned",
I press F6, the widget …

02/14 - RE: How to upgrade EAPI 6 to a higher version (dragan legic)

I know you do not adore a layman, but I need to use a couple of added repositories because these programs do not exist in Calculate and Gentoo. The most important one I use is radeon-profiles for my graphic card and I'm hoping to better cooling the graphic card through t…

02/14 - RE: zz-autounmask (Alexander Tratsevskiy)

You are right, it is better to keep zz-files under control in order not to catch the lock in the future when updating.

Thank you!
