Linux-Distro with rolling updates

Wed Sep 14, 2011 3:28 pm
Can someone tell me a to Kubuntu comparable Linux-Distro with a rolling update and upgrade? I am fed up with waiting up to 7 months for a new fullgrade Upgrade in conjunction with a Distro-Upgrade. When a new Gimp version appears, I want it quickly, same with KMyMoney, etc.

Thanks for any tipps.


Best greetings from Scotland's nicest holiday isle.
Kubuntu 13.10 KDE 4.11.2, 64 bits, Nvidia 4800GS, 4MB Ram, 3 core, HP Monitor 2550 x 1600 pixels. And a broadband connection of <60kB/sec! No joke, just pure time wasting.

doesn't Kubuntu have backport repos which provides updated versions of apps and don't 3rd parties also (ex gimp http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/?p=19301)

rolling release - you can start here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolling_release as there's a list

there's been a recent proposeal about Ubuntu switching to a 1 month release cycle http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n ... &px=OTg5MQ


OpenSuse 13.1 x64, KDE 4.12.x

By Kubuntu comparable if you mean a KDE based distro, then you have the following:
1. PCLinuxOS
2. Chakra

openSUSE has recently introduced a rolling release, Tumbleweed, http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Tumbleweed but that means leaving a Debian based distro.

Tumbleweed, great name :)

@ Arran
Mind that its KDE is not themed but vanilla quite unlike Kubuntu. fwiw I might give Chakra a try one of these days.
