Redcore Linux

Last Update: 2018-01-29 01:06 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: 86 (140), 6 months: 46 (240), 3 months: 43 (257), 4 weeks: 38 (311), 1 week: 68 (161)

Great lookin. Very fast and complete.
I do not know if the repository problem was solved, but I used the default install.
Filezilla installed correctly, bluefish was not found, Google Chrome installed, but did not start.
It is a young distro, and it has future

I was the reviewer from 2018-01-04: "318MB of ram usage..." This is an update to show my sadness of the direction of Redcore. What has changed with the team to have them push out experimental packages all of a sudden? I have to say that I went from totally stable to now I have to find a new OS. One would think that they would add update info/instructions on their website (since this is the only way to make sure you don't screw up) BEFORE they push out the update. If you update/upgrade your system before they add the info on their site, your system breaks. I think the Redcore team needs to go back to the 1708/1710 mentality and wait to push out packages after thorough testing. Some of us try to rely on a stable system and up until recently it was exactly that. I would now consider the project unstable and I sincerely hope the team can salvage this project.
