Thank you again Martin for your reply.

Just to be clear: I ain't complaining about your work, and I am certainly
not complaining about any suckless tools. If anything I became a big
enthusiast of suckless tools, both because of its simplicity and
"lightness": right now I migrate all my window managers to DWM and changed
all terminals to ST, and I am using dmenu and slock as well. Also, I am not
handing off any responsibility at all, all I am doing is asking for some
guidance, if it is possible. If I properly understood your last comment you
are confused with the fact that I am able to run Gentoo, which is not a
distro for beginners, but at the same time I am failing miserably to
understand something that fells very basic and simple to you. You are
totally correct, I have been using RedHat and Fedora for the last 20 years
but decided to use Gentoo instead to force me to learn a lot about coding
and computation in general. So yes, the way the patches are implemented has
been very difficult for me to understand, as you can see here, but I am
interested in learning anyway, and eventually I know I will. So thank you
again for your replies, I won't bother you any more.
