The kernel itself is not compatible with my GPU, and I know how easy it is to add a module, but it is just the fact I have to recompile the kernel that bothers me.
And I already run a generic kernel.

How long does it take you to recompile the kernel?

One hour or so, depends on how lazy I am.

What GPU is it, out of curiosity?

I see. Still, that's not too long, is it? Or can you not do anything else while it's going on?

Doesn't worth it, it will be updated in a month or so.

If you think so, reminds me of my attitude towards compiling the GUI version of Vim (figured I'd wait till version 8, but it turns that's a lot further away than I thought at the time, so here we are).

By the way, if anyone cares, compiling GTK2 also allowed me to install VMWare and not have it segfault immediately on launch, which will probably come in useful.

Making the Nvidia GLX working.
I later figured that being optimus, my computer wouldn't run with nvidia's glx, thus leaving me with a computer that triggered a segmentation fault each time an OpenGL app was launched, including complex desktop environments, these crashed and were unusable, and the pc was darn laggy.

incognito, a bit of an odd question but, do you have any experience finding kernel exploits?

I sometimes think you're a spy of some sort, searching for smart people to solve mysteries such as Cicada 3301 :hinhin:
The helmet might confuse people to think so but I ain't interested in working for Uncle Sam, too risky, don't wanna end up like snowden, I do beleive in the good that would be brought by a globalised new world order, but I'm not supporting the idea or the IlluminatiBut I do find the idea hardcore and badassToo much Deus Ex heheh.
But again it could be another manifestation of my severe paranoia.

Linux and other FLOSS OSes, indeed. Which brings me to DragonFly.

I heard DragonFlyBSD (fork of FreeBSD) was dropping PulseAudio because it just doesn't bloody work on that OS. I decided I'd install it for fun in a VM and see what the hell was going on. I have come to the conclusion that it's not just Pulse, but essentially everything GNOME-related that is a complete cluster**** on DragonFly. The terminal wouldn't launch, and when I put a line in rc.conf to start all GNOME services, the thing wouldn't even log in if I had a CD in the (virtual) drive. :boon:

I guess if you want to use GNOME or even Pulse, you should stick with Linux. Not such a big deal really, since there's still a lot of good desktop software that runs on the BSDs.

I don't even know why I posted this rant here TBH, but if you're interested, there it is.

I was thinking about giving BSD a try, but thanks for convincing me to stick on Slackware :mrgreen:.
Well, the version of Slackware I currently use (14.1), doesn't come with PulseAudio built in, but alsa instead, Skype needs Pulse audio, so I had to use a substitute, Apulse, whenever I have to launch Skype I have to use the command "apulse skype" not that much of a problem, but 14.2 dropped the alsa support to switch to Pulse.
GNOME is probably my favourite WM ever, it is my top WM alongside with Awesome, but since it is a pain in ass of my wallet to install it on Slackware...

As I understand it though, normal FreeBSD works all right with GNOME and Pulse. Haven't tried it yet though.
