Brightness and volume fn issues on kernels 3.9 and higher? (solved)

First I looked up this issue and found some people had solved not being able to properly use their fn + brightness keys and fn + volume keys by modprobing a module that included wmi in it's name so I modprobed asus_nb_wmi (my specific model is an Asus u56e) which seemed to work. Lately however it works but it randomly decides not to work all the time. I guess until there's a fix I'll just use the 3.2.0-4-amd kernel.

I fixed my fn key problems more or less by compiling the kernel myself.

You could post the output here maybe someone else can help.
I'm unfortunately not very experienced with compiling things.

I'm going through the dependency list on kernel 3.10.9 and it's isdn4k-utils that doesn't want to compile

$ make config

Re: Brightness and volume fn issues on kernels 3.9 and higher? (solved)

Odd on the old kernels (where x is mysteriously not working right) I can do sudo startx and xinit i3 or xinit i3 -- :1 and it works but X crashes immediately when I go back to a tty...

Edit: removed all the compiled kernel things from /boot and /lib/modules/ and reinstalled one of the older kernels, X is fixed slim has a bit of a delay before it starts but it works.
