I'm posting this in this forum just because I'm curious to know whether other people think it's important.
Am I the only one who likes to have numlock on when I log into X? I like it, I really do. I hate when after I log in I hit the keypad and don't get a number.
So here I am running VL 5.9 RC1 (waiting for the final to come out before another install). I figure NumlockX should do the trick.
I downloaded the source for NumlockX 1.1 and tried to use M0E's vpackager to compile it. No dice. Then I tried compiling it, y'know, manually, and got an error message telling me it couldn't find the X libraries. With the fury of a thousand suns I slammed my fists onto my keyboard, and completely by accident a numlockx.SlackBuild file and a slack-desc file downloaded, a terminal opened, and the thing compiled by itself. I installed it, and it works. But it's not built specifically for 5.9, plus it wasn't built in a clean build environment, so I can't share it with everyone.
What do you all think? Is this important enough to have a VL-specific package, or did I damage my prefontal cortex when I bumped my head this morning ('cuz, y'know, that would impair my judgement).
Yeah, I'm off work today. That's why I'm writing these crazy posts.
