Redcore Linux

Last Update: 2018-07-01 22:05 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.

Like other one said, It's really slow, and that's not lxqt's fault, because lxqt is much faster in other distribution. Plus I don't understand why install steam and hp device manager by default.

Slow slow slow is all I can say. took so long it timed out with errors. tried noecpi got to part desktop then stalled. so could not install it. Waste of time needs much improvement. BTW my computer is AMD X86-64 ASUS A88XM-A /USB3-1 16 GB Ram 500 GB SSD. This is the only Distro I have not been able to run.
