Redcore Linux

Last Update: 2017-11-08 01:39 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.

I had problems with the install on 1708.... 1710 installed on the first attempt and by some miracle it's the only distro that I've installed in the last year (about 50+) that literally has no lines from sync issues while watching Netflix. The mouse theme is by far the best one I have ever seen, and their LXQt themes look very nice. You can still use emerge and portage. It took about 20 seconds to learn to use the package manager, if you can use pacman or apt-get, you can use sisyphus too. A very good job by the Redcore team. I'm going to run this in place of Windows for the next week to make my full judgement, but the last few hours have been flawless. *Also only uses about 400-450MB of ram.

Runs smooth and is quite fast on my 10 year old laptop, how ever the package manager doesnt seem to work correctly.
It doesnt give an error but it doesnt remove the software that I tell it to uninstall.
Good distro if you dont plan on changing the software it comes with.
