Yes, that's exactly what I meant...
Anyway, I have to apologize here. You see, I'll have to be perfectly honest with you. I've been using ubuntu and mint for about 5 years now. I decided that the time had come to make the switch into something more interesting... I thought about slackware, and discovered this little jewel which seems perfect to get me started as a slacker-in-traning (specially because of the codec installation script-thingy in salix, which is a downside of zenwalk)...
This also means that, as an ex-ubuntu convert, I don’t exactly know what you are talking about, which puts me off sometimes of saying something in the forums because the feedback is a bit overwhelming for a noob like me.
In any case, from my experience, I reckon the basic config.rc script won’t have any problems. I realize some people complain about it flickering sometimes (which even happened to me once). Even so, that all went away when I changed my .rc to have it display conky in its own (yet transparent) window. As such, I reckon it’s safe to say that the default script will be compatible with any X drivers.
I guess the crunchbang guys though about that sort of inconveniences too before including it in their ISO. I don’t know…
Despite that, I guess you’re right. Some people are just not that interested in having it display that sort of info, which would make it a useless effort.
On the other hand, people also say that the abovementioned ubuntu fork only got all of that attention because of conky:) Who knows!
Btw, I used to use gkrellm and also loved it
But, for now, I guess I'll let you experts do the important decisions and just stay quiet
