Question Distro Recommendation


I'm looking for a Linux distro with the following

* Kernel support for QoS and/or fair queuing
* Kernel support for Netfilter (iptables)
* New versions of iptables (ex 1.2.11) and iproute2 (ex 20041019-3)
* Perl
* sudo (so webserver - mostly not running by root - can load the shaper rules which needs root privileges)

Can anyone make a recommendation?

TIA

Any modern distro has all those functions. Go to DistroWatch and pick one that looks good to you

I forgot to add 1 thing.....

I need layer 7 packet classifier already installed and iptables patched for it (http://sourceforge.net/projects/l7-filter/).
