perl514 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Wish you all a very happy new year. I hate to begin the first question here that's not really related to Perl, but have no other go. Is there anyone here using a "Rolling Release" linux?
I am running on Ubuntu 12.04 and its a great os, but for past some days, its been crashing/freezing on me. Also, every two hours or so, the internet connection goes belly up. May be I installed something that messed it up, so I did a full re install, but the problem returns.
I tried Debian earlier, and its quite smooth, but I cannot for some reason dual boot that and Windows 7. I tried CentOS/Scientific Linux, but my laptop temperature shoots way too high and it scares me.
Anyone here using a rolling distro? From what I gather, these are sweet spot between stability and comparatively newer packages. Sabayon and Manjaro are two rolling releases that are a sweet spot between extremely easy to install/use and hardcore geek sort of linux flavour. Anyone tried it here?
I am on a thinkpad T430 with 16 GB RAM, and its a good laptop, so I am pretty sure its got nothing to do with bad hardware.
I presume there would be a lot of linux users here, and they could possibly provide some pointers.
