  • Prey benchmark problem

    Hello,

    I've tried the prey benchmark, installing game files and key like for doom3, but it wasn't ok. I had to copy the demo folder in my home .prey/base. Then, the demo starts and runs, but 0 fps for result.

    I think there's a path problem, but I didn't find how to fix it. I did manage to run timedemo in prey console, and fps result appears.

    Any idea to fix it please?

    Hmm I've ran into a problem with the Prey key not working when it's been copied, but beyond that I haven't encountered your problem where when the test runs it shows zero FPS. Does it run three times and all? Can you paste what's printed to the standard output?

      Yes, after I copied demos and key in my home folder, it runs normally. But pts gives zero:

      Code:
      ====================================
      Prey (Run 1 of 3)
      ====================================
      
      
      ====================================
      Prey (Run 2 of 3)
      ====================================
      
      
      ====================================
      Prey (Run 3 of 3)
      ====================================
      
      
      ####################################
      Prey:
      1024 x 768
      
      
      Average: 0.00 Frames Per Second
      ####################################

      Then, if I run the command with arguments in a terminal, a line display:
      2555 frames rendered in 26.7 seconds = 95.7 fps

      Tested on Ubuntu 8.04 and Debian Lenny, where all other tests are ok.

        Ya the same thing happens in other distro's as well.

          Which files could we edit? I wonder how to debug pts...

            Well, I have found a bug itself with Prey... It seems to not pay attention to the $HOME environmental variable. PTS overrides HOME to ~/.phoronix-test-suite/installed-tests/prey/ but Prey is still using ~/.prey/ which is causing problems with the Prey key and copying of the demo file. But once I copied the demo and key to that location, it worked and recorded the results.

              I confirm that I had to copy files in home location, but still have 0.00 result, even with pts 1.8.0a2, ubuntu hardy.

                Can you run a : phoronix-test-suite force-install prey

                and try again?

                  Done, always the same.
                  If I go in prey-linux-x86 folder, open a terminal, ./prey.x86 +timedemoquit pts, it runs (in the last resolution choosen with pts), fps is shown: 2555 frames in 55 sec = 46,4 fps.

                    Hmmm. Is English not your main locale on your system (I notice the comma in your FPS). It might be the locales that could be messing up PTS. Locale problems are partially addressed in the latest Git code (Selbu Alpha 2 is too old) @ .tar.gz http://phorogit.com/index.php?p=phor...e.git&dl=targz
