I'm currently looking for a very old Linux distro that has an old kernel, doesn't support PAE/XD bit, doesn't support VASLR (Virtual Address Space Layout Randomization) and doesn't have X^W memory protection (Can execute code on any page in memory). No need for GUI interfaces, just a very simple linux that i can use in VM for studies.

  • A quick Google would find old Linux distributions. – roaima Jul 2 '16 at 13:30
  • i could have done that easily but i asked to give me a very specific distro that matches all the options above. – Karim Manaouil Jul 3 '16 at 4:13
