So I subbed in $\displaystyle y=e^{\alpha x}$ et cetera, and somewhere down the line ended up needing to solve

$\displaystyle \sin{\omega}+\omega\cos{\omega}=0$

and now I'm stuck and not even sure if this can be done. Obviously $\displaystyle \omega=0$ would work, but wouldn't that just give a trivial solution?
