Since I was doing some tests with Slackware running on different platforms (Slack/390, Slack/390x, ArmedSlack on Qemu, etc.) I wanted to compare the performance of the different setups.

After almost two years without activiry, the maintainers have released some patches / upgrades for Slack/390 – both the -stable and the -current versions.Since I use SlackPkg on my other Slackware installations (12.1, 12.2 & -current), I wanted [...]

I recently managed to patch a current version of SlackPkg to work on Slack/390 (the version included in /extra does not work).I’ll try to organize my notes during the following days and [...]
…Continuing from Part 10
Final configuration and IPLing Slack390
The setup program configured our network, but missed some important details we need to get our network up and running.
