iotop is broken with the latest Slackware kernel. I've included the
maintainer here, but also posting the note and a patch for the iotop
SlackBuild to the list for further review.
A few comments regarding the issue and patch: Recent kernels, including
Slackware's 4.4.144 kernel, have introduced at least one blank line in
/proc/<pid>/status which breaks the parse_proc_pid_status() function in
iotop/data.py. The added patch fix-proc-status-read.patch updates this
function to skip empty lines.

The fix is based on the report in .
