Re: Paxtest results with default Grsec2 aren't impressive

I didn't knew that it was necessary to compile a custom kernel.
Before I installed Grsec2 I did some research. I bumped on a PDF that compared the different results with Debian, Gentoo, and some other distro's.
Debian didn't score very high, but it had sufficient protection. I recall that the document stated that the Debian kernel was precompiled to run Grsec2.
With the patch installed the features were active. But this wasn't the case as far as I read in this thread?

I'll compile a custom kernel and try the test again.

You don't really seem to be running a grsec kernel here, by the way.
