Redcore Linux Still Aims to Bring Gentoo Linux to the Masses, Now Ships with Linux 5.14

Filed under

Over the past five years, Redcore Linux’s goal has always been to bring the power of the source-based Gentoo Linux operating system to the masses, offering users up-to-date and hardened live ISO images with the most recent KDE Plasma desktop environment and a carefully selected set of applications for office, multimedia, gaming, and Internet browsing needs.

  • Redcore Linux Hardened 2102 Polaris stable | Redcore Linux Project

    We're pleased to announce that Redcore Linux Hardened 2102 (codename Polaris) is now available for download. This cycle was a rather smooth one, without major incidents, until the nasty portage bug announced in our last blogpost. But that one was not the only bug we addressed since our previous release. In fact, this release is mostly focused on polishing and fixing bugs, so you won't find many exciting new features inside. Though, we still updated over 1300 packages since our previous release and, to top it off, we did a mass rebuild of the whole repository.

    Today we’ll take a look at Redcore Linux 2102 codenamed “Polaris”. Redcore Linux is a Gentoo-based live-installable distribution that aims to bring Gentoo’s power to home users. Like Gentoo it is a rolling release, but unlike Gentoo, Redcore Linux provides more current software than Gentoo itself by using the Gentoo testing repositories as its package base.

    Redcore Linux is not a very popular Linux distro, with small development team behind it. Probably not too many people have heard of it. It’s been around for a little bit – in November, Redcore Linux will be 5 years old.

    The Redcore Linux devs team is strongly focused on few goals. They are not trying to be all things to all people like so many other Linux distributions are trying to be. All they are traying to do is make a easy to install Gentoo-based Linux distribution that ships by default with the KDE Plasma desktop. Redcore Linux targets casual desktop users and, to some extent, even power users.
