        Or just activate the testing repository.

            Switching disro just because your distro doesn't release rc kernel 5 minutes after Linus pushes it is silly.
            If you really want bleeding edge, just use git.
            You might need to spend hour of your time trying to set everything up (configuration, compilation itself takes about 5 minutes at recent hardware) - it really isn't that hard or time consuming.

            I mean, updating is this simple:

            Code:
            git pull
            make menuconfig
            make
            su -c 'make modules_install && cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-git'
            You will have to setup your bootloader to know that kernel is located at /boot/kernel-git, but that's pretty easy, generally.

              Missing some humor today?
              I was just joking. Of course, I would not switch a distro for this, too!
              Of course I should have used this smiley - my bad...

                but rolling distros are at least tested (openQA) and integrated a bit and they update ALL your software. To compile a kernel etc. yourself also needs more power and quite some time on slower machines. did this only once on my AMD E-350 apu since it needed over 1 hour...

                  Sorry but no, if you only compile what you need, it's around one minute or less on i3770k and definitely under 15 min on your Apu..

                    You mean a build similar to localmodconfig? Because a full build takes easily 15-20 minutes on reasonably powerful hardware.
