Redcore Linux

Last Update: 2018-04-02 03:01 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.

Extremely slow on a low-resources VM, i can't understand how a binary upgrade can be so slow, i never saw something like this. This distro is a bad joke. The basis is this, if a distro goes very slow on low resources, never can so fast on high resources. I'm sorry for giving this bad opinion but i think this is one of the worst distros i ever seen.

This is a bad, bad distro from the point of view of testing/examining on a Virtualbox.

The startup is snail's pace. The openbox option for display manager results in a lock-up. Once you use the default one, it eventually starts up. Then it requires a physically 20GB size disk, even though virtualbox presents it with a 20GB size.

Too much hard work when you're evaluating distros. However, I persevered and installed it. OMG this is so slow. If you think this is fast, try MX-17 or Antix - now that's speed.

In summary, it's slow, slow, slow. It's tedious. It's got bugs.

It is a good Gentoo based, but this version is not so stable.
sometimes the calamares installer failed, sometimes the unsquash phase is extremely slow...
also, thei use is not so trivial.
It have three working modes: binary, hybrid (mixed) and source (Gentoo mode), and these modes are not fully compatible.
Good,but not a easy to use Linux Distro for the begginers... Thei use requires expertise in using Gentoo, or at least, Sabayon or Calculate.
