CryptDragoon,

You have obviousely put alot of thought into this. Now as I stated before, I have formated my drive in eager anticipation of your new kickass distro. And now I learn it may be 2- 3 years before it's ready. Well I still have my report due next week so I was wondering what OS should I install in order to complete my work? Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you ever so much.

ROFL Franklin you make me lauph ..I donno it's cause your a funny one or if I'm going insane ....LOL

Don't you Dual boot or in my case have 4 OS's Installed?
and I never told you to format your computer I was simply
saying I am better off writing my own operating system then trying to figure out what the hell is wrong woth my kernel
but since your the linux PRO here ....why don't you tell me what's wrong with it?

And no I am not recompiling a CVS version of the kernel I am trying to get acclerated X server running and pray to god that KDE runs just a tad bit faster, my kernel is kernel version 2.4.22


I am still not sure about this but I might also have to recompile Free X86 because I did a search and I ddint find a OpenGL.so or Glide.so

But since your the Linux IT Pro why don't you tell me what's wrong so I can fix it.

Surely someone who plans to write their own OS could figure that one out. I mean, I can at least configure my own kernel in Slackware but I would never attempt to write my own OS for that matter....

I made you lauph? Gee I'm sorry. I hope it didn't hurt too much.

IT Pro? Gosh no, not me! I really don't think I'm the one who should help you with your .so and .so - I am flattered tho.

But really, with 4 OS's on your box, you can't recommend one that would help me get my report done? Oh and if I was able to get KDE to run a tad bit faster would it help my typing? I'm soooo slow.

By the way, how do you know KDE is running a tad bit faster? Do the windows pop open wicked fast? That must be cool. Anyway, I thought all you assembly language guys use the CLI. What do you care about a resource hog like KDE? I figured you'd be "fvwm2 and multiple xterms" all the way.

Boy do I have alot to learn.

I am not like other people I AM NOT A POSER!

now KDE is slow ass slow i mean I can drag windows with in windows and it looks like one of my QuickBasic programs I made when I was 6 when I didnt know what CLS did ...lol
assuming KDE takes advantage of Free X86's resources an accelerated X server would also mean an Acclerated KDE witch means it would be faster then it is now ...lol but you wouldnt know about rendering the whole KDE system on 1 large poly so im going to keep my mouth shut for this one because I know its probly "not supported" even though its the fastest way to make a bloted X server like KDE run smooth without a recompile.

if you want to get that report done try Wordperfect on DR-DOS 7.1 system all your hardware is supported and its open source ....so go for it ... that's 1 OS on my box.

And my kernel is !@#$ up! besides Slackware doesn't even load modules proplerly ... rc.modules now replaces modules.conf? in the world of slack maybe but in the real world no not ever ...says Debian, SuSE and Redhat they all use modules.conf so when I put my external driver modules and other stuff I wish modprobe to put in to memory when my kernel boots up it does it ...but what do i know about linux right? I mean if 3 distros do it ...why should all of them do it as well ...even though slackware has a modules.conf it desides not to use it .... well so far all I can see with slackware is that its all for show....i mean its like if Windows 2004 came with DOS 6.22 but when you click on it is doesnt do anything ...I dont see the point of making a distro if half of the files on the mounted file system are not even used ... slackware sounds more like a hack of another linux distro now ....thows files are just there for "compatiblty" ...lol

How do you install 4 OS's when the kernel doesn't compile???
To get back to your first post:
Maybe you should touch your HID module and get rid of it.Plus why don't you just use another config file if you got already three distros on there that work.

Apparently your not familiar with Slackware and its roots, and don't get me started on how often Redhat and other distro's change things around, rename commands, etc.

Slackware hasn't changed really since the beginning.. it has always used rc.modules, what planet are you from? Slackware is the most Unix like Linux... its Redhat and all the others that have changed things around.

I haven't heard the word POSER since I was in 6th grade making fun of the kid who couldn't get his skateboard on the curb without picking it up...

This is hilarious thread.. But I'm done poking fun at your remarks and your postings.. I know I didn't help any on my previous postings, even though they were constructive/challenging in a sarcastic kind of way... but lets keep it clean and not let the thread get out of hand, or it will be closed.

Hey I'm sorry if I'm getting out of hand I mean ever since I switched I have had problems I eman most of them I got around
some of them are on this fourm like then lilo bug ... and then hardware not being detected bugs I solved all that and then when I do try to make my box better by adding 3D acceleration and support for other devices it all of a sudden blows a fuse ...like i could understand if this where my own os cause I'd know exactly how to fix it ... but its not and now I need help and its fustrating cause ive done this on a suse box before and it has worked thats why I am ticked at this ... then ontop of that ALSA saves everything to modules.conf .. so i have take all that out and put it all in rc.modules ... i might as well write my own OS i think my problems would be solved faster because I wont come across every bug in the linux world ... im pretty sure i have pretty well incounter them all by now .... just 1 roadblock in fount of another ... theres no end ...

SuSE, RedHat, etc. use SysV init, Slack uses BSD style. It's not a bug, its just different. Like linux is different from windows - if you try to make them the same your gonna frig up your mind. Read the Slackware page and howto's.

There are lots of answers here and plenty of people to help you - so long as you stop alienating them with a bunch of know-it-all BS.

Have a nice day

"when I do try to make my box better by adding 3D acceleration "

stupid question but does your graphics card support 3d under linux? might be why your seeing trials there...
