Today, operating systems are constantly evolving. Almost every day, new updates and improvements are released. For the same reason, several of them users prefer to use LTS versions of operating systems to receive new updates without having to do installation of their systems again. However, the updates they rarely occur automatically, and often require action from the user to complete. For this reason, today there are rolling distributions, which are updated automatically, on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, today many of the most well-known operating systems based on ubuntu do not come in rolling distributions. For example, the ubuntu, although it comes in LTS distributions, does not provide Rolling option. Fortunately, there is now a solution to the problem, which you call Rolling Rhino. So Rolling Rhino is a new application that allows you to turn it into a regular one operating system, in a rolling distribution.
Rolling Rhino: Rolling Distribution Tool
As we just mentioned, Rolling Rhino is a CLI tool developed by Marin Wimpress that can turn everyday build ubuntu distributions, in “rolling-release” versions, which follow all the changes of the operating system.
After converting ubuntu to rolling version, the operating system will be automatically connected to "Ubuntu Development Branch". This way, users have access to all the changes and improvements of the operating system, without having to install the new ones. ISO system files.
In addition to ubuntu, Rolling Rhino also supports all different versions of ubuntu, which are:
It is important to know, however, that the tool is currently in its infancy. This means that you may encounter random problems when converting the system while working with it. According to Martin, currently only experienced users and developers can use the tool efficiently.
How to use Rolling Rhino?
Currently, this tool is not supported by any regular or LTS version of ubuntu. If you want to use it, you must first download and install a "Daily build" of the operating system. You can then download the app, and create a rolling ubuntu distribution.
