    Older versions of linux

    I found an old laptop that I'd like to... revive. I tried to run Mint 15 (32bit), with no luck. Does anyone know where I can find older versions of Linux, any distribution. I'm just going to use a editor and different compilers.

    My bet is that the laptop is 2005- 2010:ish, maybe 2008 or so.

    A quick check shows that Linux Mint has a page with downloads of older releases. You can find similiar listings for other distributions.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Hi,

    It would be really helpful if you could post the configuration of your laptop.

    Regards.
