This will be useless to most of you, but if you need to know it, it's nearly impossible to find, so I'm giving Google another target for it.

How to compile a kernel module with just ONE command and no editing needed.

I wish to God I knew this three weeks ago when I spent an entire Saturday trying to get vmware to play nice with my kernel. I ended up doing all kinds of chicken-sacrifice voodoo yak shaving before I got it all to work.

But it's nice, for the rare "I must run Windows" circumstances to be able to fire up a full-fledged, honest-to-God copy of Windows on this machine (my main machine at home is Linux, although I run a MacBook Pro for work). VMware is the shiznit -- especially on the Mac, where you can run Windows applications side-by-side with native apps on the same desktop (i.e., not in a separate "windows desktop" window). In fact, thanks to VMware, I'm probably buying nothing but Macs for the forseeable future. (Why buy something less pretty when you can run OS X, Windows, and Linux on the same machine, at full speed, all at the same time?)

Pretty, you say? Yes, pretty.

Don't you just want to lick it?

Due to a favorable interpretation of restrictions written into a trust left by my grandfather, I am about to buy an almost-ridiculously-top-shelf laptop. (more details on that soon.)

I suppose it *could* be a Mac of some kind, running all kinds of OSes together.

The only possible things stopping me are:

1) I develop games for a Linux base that needs to touch the hardware (or at least have 3D acceleration, which I understand is coming soon in VMware's Mac stuff)
2) the Mac GUI still managing to annoy me with opaqueness and Fitt's Law violations even after its destiny-changing migration to a Unix-y base
3) ??
4) Profit
