A Gentoo-based Live CD Linux operating system that allows you to create your own Linux server distro

editor's review





Calculate Linux Scratch Server is an open source minimal Linux distribution that contains all the necessary tools for helping users to build their own Linux server operating systems. Similar to the Calculate Linux Scratch (CLS) edition of the well known Calculate Linux operating system, this edition is geared towards experienced Linux users who are looking for an easy way to configure, build and install custom Linux operating systems from scratch.

Helps you build a Linux OS from scratch

When building a Linux OS from scratch, users will need the bare minimum of components (drivers, libraries, utilities) aimed to create a custom distribution of Linux. The source code for the Linux kernel package and for the Portage package management software are also included.

Distributed as 64-bit/32-bit Live CDs

It is distributed as Live CD ISO images, supporting the 64-bit and 32-bit architectures, as well as multiple languages, including Russian and English. The boot medium can be copied entirely into RAM (system memory) or used as is, directly from a USB flash drive or CD disc.

A perfect replica of the installation image is provided on the Live CDs, which can be used to boot the operating system that is currently installed on the first disk drive or test the system memory (RAM) for errors.

Getting started with Calculate Linux Scratch Server

The system provides users with all the utilities required to successfully configure, build and install a Linux operating system from scratch. Additionally, a customized ISO image can be created thanks to the distribution’s interactive system build.

The final product can be easily installed on any external USB hard disk drive or USB flash drive, supporting the EXT2, EXT3, EXT4, FAT32, ReiserFS, XFS, Btrfs, JFS, and NILFS2 file systems.

If you want to create custom Linux server distributions that are 100% compatible with the Gentoo Linux operating system, we strongly suggest to give Calculate Linux Scratch Server (CSS) a try today.
