DistroWatch.com: Redcore Linux

Redcore Linux

Last Update: 2017-08-28 17:24 UTC


Redcore Linux explores the idea of bringing the power of Gentoo Linux to the masses. It aims to be a very quick way to install a pure Gentoo Linux system without spending hours or days compiling from source code, and reading documentation. To achieve this goal, Redcore provides a repository with pre-built binary packages which receives continuous updates, following a rolling release model.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 206 (40), 6 months: 114 (80), 3 months: 94 (111), 4 weeks: 144 (44), 1 week: 137 (46)

  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I had this running since version 1706 in a VirtualBox VM and native hardware (Lenovo ThinkPad X61s),

Now won't update. Both copies fails with:
syncing remote databases..... fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories
Traceback (most recent call last):

It's the first system that moves very fast on my laptop.

I am very pleased with this distribution and I would like other distributions to be the same.
