What is ?

Redcore Linux is a distribution based on Gentoo Linux and a continuation of, now defunct, Kogaion Linux (developed by Rogentos Development Group).

Why ?

Redcore Linux shares the same idea as his defunct ancestor, Kogaion Linux : to bring 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, reading documentation etc..

To achieve this goal, we provide a repository with prebuilt binary packages which receives continuous updates (rolling release model).

For who ?

Redcore Linux targets casual Laptop/Desktop users and, to some extent, Workstation power users. It will nicely fill any gaming, multimedia, office and internet browsing needs. Some development tools are also available.

For that reason one cannot expect to find any server application in the repository (apache, lighttpd, mysql, nginx etc.).

The repository will always remain small in size, focusing on quality and performance rather than quantity.
