Maybe 32-bit Slackware should switch to i686 instead of i586 by default?

I have been struggling with performance issues with pcsx2 for a long time and decided to investigate again. After asking in irc I was shown this issue.

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=107670

So I recompiled glibc using alienbob's multilib script changing i586 to i686 and adding '--enable-multi-arch'. In certain slow scenes I saw the fps jump from 20 to 40. I suspect there will be other instances where i686 performs much better than i586.

if there are no i586 only CPUs bought to run Slackware (the MMX license is still owned by Intel) we might move to i686 I guess...

I'm unfortunately ignorant how much hardware this may negatively effect or not.

This may be wishful thinking, but I'm looking forward to Slackware 15 being released within half a year, with Xfce 4.14, Plasma 5, and kernel 5.3.

Pat, when you're ready to start shipping a 5.2 or later kernel, please build it with CONFIG_UNICODE=y. That's needed to mount ext4 filesystems that were created with the casefold feature ("-E encoding=anything"), which is required to support case-insensitive directories ("chattr +F empty_directory"). While you're at it, it would be great if the installer was tweaked to create ext4 filesystems with "-E encoding=utf-8".

Just thinking ahead to when 5.2 or later kernels land in Slackware...

It is good to see that the Linux distro I grew up on back in 1999 (and until around 1993), before switching to FreeBSD, is still alive and kicking. Still using FreeBSD as OSPF routers in our network (all else is now Ubuntu - bless me) but would dearly like to know if a new Slackware release is due any time soon (the last 'version' I used was Slax, and that was for running GCSE exams (in the UK) around five years ago) as I'm looking to finally replace the FreeBSD boxen (despite them being my second love).

I don't see Slackware shipping with 5.2 as it is not LTS. I will wager to bet that Slackware 15.0 will be on the 4.19.x series still. The 5.x kernel branch has already gone through 2 subversions(not sure the right term - 5.1 and 5.2) and still no LTS designation, so I also wager to bet no LTS on 5.3 either.

The term is "minor versions".
