    Well, here arrives kernel 3.7, and Debian Testing is still on 3.2.0.

      Yep, pretty annoying. When I have the time and access to faster Internet ill probably go back to Arch. If you use experimental you can get the 3.5 kernel but you're still stuck with a bunch of other packages that are out of date.

        Debian never really did work as a rolling release. Testing got frozen, Sid was STILL out of date, and experimental was like playing with a loaded handgun as a kid AND was out of date. Arch works as the best rolling release if you really do want the latest and greatest. Gentoo's nice but their "current" / "stable" line is always a bit behind Arch-- perfectly fine for a rolling release but if you want the latest and greatest you run Gentoo-git or just plain old Arch lol

          Debian Sid is typically only outdated during freeze, and from that Aptosid has managed to make a rolling release distribution that works quite well. The good thing about Experimental is that you can mix it with Sid as you like. The reason why Debian's testing kernel is 3.2 is because that is a long-term supported kernel, which the Wheezy release has to support for the next 2+ years.

          I guess Arch is ok if you can live with the reduced number of packages compared to Debian. Gentoo has not only stable and git (if by "git" you mean live ebuilds).

            Its not really hard to compile a kernel for debian. If you use my kernel-wedge package you can use ubuntu packageing like you get from ubuntu mainline. if packageing does not really interest you just fetch the kernel you want to build and run

            http://kanotix.com/files/fix/compile-kernel-full.sh

            If you use ubuntu packageing and kernel-wedge from ubuntu or kanotix:

            http://kanotix.com/files/fix/compile-ubuntu-kernel.sh

            Most likely when your current kernel is 3.2 and you build then 3.6 you have to press lots of time enter with the first script. If you like a custom name change the Makefile. A current i7-3770s together with an ssd needs around 10 min to compile a kernel, so whats the huge problem?

              I just search for that. Thanks.

                Arch has a LOT of packages in aur, it is impressive...
                Frankly I barely every not find anything I am looking for there...
