Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • 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.

Excellent distro, it just need some more polish and then it can be a really great distro.
I love the semi-rolling release model, it let me have the most recent application but without having to deal with the bugs tipical of a rolling-release as Arch.
Also the Plasma experience is very good and the package selections is not too big but at least the most used software (except for chrome) were there.
Some points (IMO) to make chakra really great:
-a nicer package manager (octopi works but is not so really nice....)
-the qt/gtk split (I don't quite understand it, gtk2 and 3 are in [gtk], but other gnome libs were in [core])
-the need of manual intervention (it is very annoying because you have to check the website at every update to check if there are interventions to do...)
-also having more packages would be great (as I said most used packages were there, but how do I install other packages? I saw there is a equivalent to AUR but I don't have the time to compile every application...)
-I installed tlp to increase battery duration, but some distro have it installed by default.
They are minor points but they make impossible to use Chakra for really inexperienced user.

The last time I tried Chakra was 3 or 4 years ago. It was a clunky mess. This latest version is just steps away from greatness. The installation was easy, smooth and flawless. I'm not a KDE fan but I like the way this desktop looks, feels and performs. I have had a lot of trouble with Arch-based distros in the past and always hoped that a solid, producton quality version would surface one day. I almost gave up hope, but this may be it. A great job by the Chakra crew.

Chakra is a solid, semi-rolling release distribution. It has a strong focus on Qt applications with the option of installing GTK software if the user wants it. The distro is fast and highly customizable.
