Well according with the MAN page, the SiS driver supports the following chipsets:
Code:
SiS5597/5598 SiS530/620 SiS6326/AGP/DVD SiS300/305 SiS540 SiS630/730 SiS315/E/H/PRO SiS550/551/552 SiS650/651/661/741 SiS330 (Xabre) SiS760/761 XGI Volari V3/V5/V8 XGI Volari Z7
Some of them are also present in the form of PCI or AGP cards.

And yes, I am pretty sure that I seen physically at least SiS6326 integrated in AM2 motherboards.

You are sure that that motherboard which you seen "physically" isn't instead an AMD Socket 939?

These sockets looks practically identical, but the support of Socket 939 is for AGP 3.0 instead of PCI-Express x16, and for DDR400 memories instead of DDR2 whatever frequencies.

And yes, there are dual core processors for this socket too, in the form of Athlon64 x2 processors capable to run Slackware64.

Well, that story happened several years ago, but it was an AM2, otherwise there was no chances to use DDR2 800 memories.

And I agree, there also was made Socket 939 motherboards with SiS chipsets.

However, looks like you are right, there was produced SiS IGPs even for chipsets with socket 775 and AM2, according with Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silico...grated_Systems

But I do not think they supported more than dual-core processors.

etc-15.0-x86_64-4
Add /etc/inputrc ctrl+left/right and alt+left/right word jumping in the console:
Code:
# enable Alt-arrows
"\e[1;3D": backward-word
"\e[1;3C": forward-word
# enable ctrl-arrows
"\e[1;5D": backward-word
"\e[1;5C": forward-word
(its pretty annoying when instead of a jump it just prints string like "5D" inside a command)

pkgtools and multithreading

Even after the recent changes to pkgtools, enabling multi-threading where possible, creating txz packages with /sbin/makepkg still only uses one core here, I guess because of the compression preset level used.
Code:
$ dd if=/dev/urandom of=/tmp/testfile bs=1M count=100
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
104857600 bytes (105 MB, 100 MiB) copied, 0.548705 s, 191 MB/s
$ time cat /tmp/testfile | xz -9 --threads=4 -c > /tmp/testfile.1.xz

real	0m58.593s
user	0m58.108s
sys	0m0.617s
$ time cat /tmp/testfile | xz --threads=4 -c > /tmp/testfile.2.xz

real	0m13.141s
user	0m53.001s
sys	0m0.493s
$ ls -lh /tmp/testfile.1.xz /tmp/testfile.2.xz
-rw-r--r-- 1 shasta shasta 101M May 17 15:02 /tmp/testfile.1.xz
-rw-r--r-- 1 shasta shasta 101M May 17 15:03 /tmp/testfile.2.xz
$
Maybe if $XZ_THREADS_FORCED is set to 'yes' makepkg should drop the -9 from $COMPRESSOR for txz?

There's not much point to that (yet), since xz won't do multithreaded decompression anyway. Better to keep the packages as small as possible.

There is pixz, but due to the dependencies it has it really isn't suitable for use in the pkgtools.

The netatalk daemon is very old (2.2.3) and moving the the latest stable (3.1.11) would be great, however it really needs avahi (https://www.avahi.org/) to work correctly which is another daemon that needs to run to do the broadcasting zeroconf stuff (Apple calls it Bonjour).

Avahi is in slackbuilds and works fine, and updating the netatalk build scripts aren't hard, and I'm happy to submit slackbuilds for all of this, but won't bother unless including avahi is considered as the current netatalk is pretty useless, and the new netatalk without avahi is useless as well.

I suppose users can just upgrade to an SBo maintained netatalk, but it would be nice to have this in slackware itself.

I think a lot of Slackware users would be unhappy to have avahi imposed upon them (though I have considered it).

But doesn't netatalk-3 also have a hard dep on PAM?
