Fuck ClearOS, I think I’m done

I am starting to get really tired of this distro. Their “support” forums are about the worst on the web. The forum software fucking sucks too, I have never seen a support forum that arranges posts the way they do. The shit is far from in order, the posts feel like Facebook – you know how they constantly rearrange shit for no good fucking reason. yeah like that so fuck that place. Not to mention there is no help there, all the posts that show up in searches are YEARS old and/or only apply to a version a few years old.

Besides the extreme lack of any public community support the shit isn’t stable’ish. Every the system reboots (usually due to a power failure or Comcast sucking ass) I have to spend hours trying to get my internet connection back. Clear does NOT play well with any fucking cable modem or NIC I have yet to come upon. That’s a serious fucking problem. Now lets get to why I am typing this post. I’m fucking irritated. My UPS battery decided to take a shit, so I lost power to the server. Upon reboot I actually happened to have an internect connection, which is really fucking odd – cause that has never ever ever ever ever happened before… But nooo, can’t just leave it at that nope. After the server came back up something happened to Transmission and its permissions. I’m not sure what, but it’s fucking bullshit. Transmission, a module available via the marketplace but it doesn’t configure itself properly. Permissions are a fucking nightmare trying to get it all to work, which I had until Clear rebooted. It won’t let me add the transmission user to the group, the group doesn’t show up everywhere, the users are where they are suppose to be. Fucking ridiculous.

Any other options instead of ClearOS? I was using Zentyal which was great until they removed every module I actually found useful, now Clear is giving me more headaches than I care for. A GUI is required, I am not messing with CLI shit all day long for a home box.

    The same shit all the way , in my PDC server with Clear 7.2 , too .
    Not recognized NIC’s .
    LDAP going down every time I try to make an AD with the fucking user’s list and the stupid Flexshare not validating the linux terminals.
    I hate all that “unClear” config -Domain-Hostname-Internet Hostname-Default Domain-Subdomain- , common! give me a break!!! . resolv.conf don’t have any idea what to do with all that! , the DNS goes crazy and the DHCP stop seeing anyone on the net!!!.
    The oplocks problem with Samba and Windows and his slow reads on shares!!! .
    Have to edit the Group_Manager_Driver.php to see the groups I’ve already created ??? , is bullshit!!! .
    Making changes to the registry file in all the Windows 7/8/10 machines or forget about getting validated against the AD , is more shit!.
    In the other end , making a peacefull walk away from the PDC to the gateway server , with Clear 6.7.0 this one is really functional and do the job very well . With 3 DSL’s and 1 CableModem the multiwan service make me happy a lot , and his DynamicDNS service I just love it! . But the other one? , the AD server? , wich I need to replace the outdated Windows Server 2003? , it’s just result in a nightmare I don’t want anymore . The small one , a back-up server is running NethServer . I like it and is working fine beside his minimalistic GUI and the basic administration of shares . I need and I want a GUI too . And Clear 6.7.0 ends his life in Aug 2017 . I have to move on like it or not . Clear 7.0 is not in 32bit version anymore . I think that’s the problem , mainly with old hardware like mine’s . I’ll give them one more shot and that’s all . Then I like to try Calculate Linux with all his ecosystem/enviroment for networks .
    I’m getting tired of Clear , same like you .
