          It's a shame they don't update to latest stable kernel. I hope someday packages like kernel, ffmpeg, web browsers and office suites get very regularly updated.

            They do update if you use sid, which, in my opinion, is the only reasonable choice for desktop users that choose Debian.

            Oh yes, you're right, sid does have some sharp edges now and then, but hey, it's Debian after all, and freedom comes at a price.

              I downloaded a RC1 and a RC2 but I still continues to see the same old Debian installer... :-/

                I just end up building it myself in such cases.

                  I have been having lots of issues building Firefox on Debian 10. What a disappointment; these issues never happened in Ubuntu, OpenSUSE Leap and Fedora. Problems include dbus symbols not found even though libdbus-1-dev has been installed (and this is even after disable-dbus was specified in mozconfig), and segfaulting on launch.

                  More infuriating is that I can build FF multiple times with the same mozconfig and get multiple different results. First time builds successfully but segfaults on launch under Wayland, second time builds successfully but segfaults under both X11 and Wayland, and the final attempt failed with missing dbus symbols even though disable-dbus is specified and libdbus-1-dev is installed.

                  The latest nightly also no longer recognizes the 'disable-elf-hack' option which is required by Debian for a successful build.
