At some point when you are following the latest releases you are going 
to end up going past the packaging systems. At that point you will be 
running an lfs type system and have to compile your own in order to keep 

If you are not prepared to do that then you have to stick with the 
systems that are built on your behalf. In such cases you have 
effectively lost your ability to complain or muse on the lack of 
bleeding edge support. Although no one will stop you from doing so but 
it won't sink in as everyone knows the issues and has good reasons for 
not keeping up.

If you want to step over the edge and keep up you have to install the 
-dev packages and the kernel headers as a minimum.
