PS2 Linux (Linux for PlayStation 2 or PS2 Linux Kit) – a kit released by Sony in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 console. The kit includes GNU/Linux based operating system, keyboard, mouse, video adapter, network adapter and 40 GB hard drive, and allows the PlayStation 2 console to be used as a personal computer.

Only the SCPH-30000 model of the PS2 console is officially adapted to run Linux. The SCPH-50000 model allows you to run Linux only after updating the network adapter driver. The SCPH-70000 and SCPH-90000 versions (slim version) do not work with Linux on PS2 at all.

PS2 Linux distribution is based on Kondara MNU/Linux, a Japanese distribution itself based on Red Hat Linux.

Before installing the system, the console memory card must be formatted, which means that all game state records are removed from it.

The last version | Released: 1.3a | May 2009

Live Hacking – a Linux distribution packed with tools and utilities for ethical hacking, penetration testing and countermeasure verification.

Based on Ubuntu this ‘Live DVD” runs directly from the DVD and doesn’t require installation on your hard-drive. Once booted you can use the included tools to test, check, ethically hack and perform penetration tests on your own network to make sure that it is secure from outside intruders.

The Live Hacking DVD is designed for ethical computer hacking, meaning that it contains the tools and utilities you need to test and hack your own network but using the tools and techniques that more malicious hackers would use.

The Live Hacking Mini CD is a small Linux distribution designed for ethical computer hacking. Based on its bigger brother (the Live Hacking DVD) this mini distribution contains the tools and utilities you need to test and hack your own network by using the tools and techniques employed by more malicious hackers. To reduce this Linux distribution to a smaller size, the GNOME user interface has been removed, meaning that this is a command-line only distribution.

Inquisitor

Origin: Russia
Category: Specialist
Desktop environment: text
Architecture: x86, x86_64
Based on: Debian
Wikipedia: Inquisitor_(hardware_testing_software)
Media: Live CD
The last version | Released: 3.1beta2 | October 20, 2009

Inquisitor – an open-source hardware testing and certification system, suitable for both enterprise and home use, customizable, modular and available in both serverless Live CD/DVD format and server-controlled network boot production system.

This name originates from 2004, when ALT Linux was building its new installer/configuration system. All its components’ names finished with *tor (i.e. separator, propagator, predator, alterator, etc). Mikhail Yakshin came forward with a curious idea of calling new hardware testing system an “Inquisitor”—it fitted *tor schema perfectly and besides, it was a pun on system’s functionality with stress tests like cpuburn.

It boasts separate Live CD that one can download and use, just as one might download any other Live CD Linux distribution, and Inquisitor can be built into bootable root that would look just like real Linux system (but customized for specific tasks).
It is a modular system, it’s made up from a series of interchangeable modules; one can easily add new modules to add new tests, detections, production steps, etc.

It can analyse and test your hardware from top to the bottom and assure that it won’t fail easily under the production stress.
