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.

Oh merci, je regarde ca ce soir car j'ai une MAJ kernel qui était en attente pour le test :)

12/06 - RE: CDL18 - nvidia-drivers - grub2 (Adrien Daugabel)

pour ne plus que ce problème ce pose, il faut créer un "template calculate".
Edites le fichier /etc/default/grub comme bon te semble.
Ensuite, copie-le et nomme-le /etc/default/grub.clt (Calculate Linux Template)
Et aux prochaines MàJ, plus de questions ;)

Bonjour Lionel

Hi Travis,

1. Maybe older Gentoo forum threads about mendeleydesktop might help. The first thread suggests building the package from a local repository, among two other possible solutions, but there would be a discrepency between the version offered (1.19.2) and the ebuild version:-

Hi Ying,

In case it could help, I sometimes get a blinking cursor for a long time (30 seconds perhaps?) on a black screen after the "Easy from the source" wallpaper appears, although in my case I installed the xfce version to the hard drive and have been using different window managers, jwm and …

Thank you!
