    Phoronix: Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 Enters Beta

    After a three month development period following the release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.0, the first beta release of Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 "Bardu" is now available for all of your testing needs on Linux, Mac OS X, OpenSolaris, and BSD platforms. Phoronix Test Suite 2.2 Beta 1 carries more than 200 changes since the release of 2.0 Sandtorg with many new prominent features being introduced, new test profiles added, and greater usability enhancements. In this article, we will go over some of the key improvements to be found in Phoronix Test Suite 2.2.

    Hi Phoronix,

    Kongrats, and two Questions:

    1. Do you anticipate that the OpenGL version of the Heaven benchmark will be released in time for PTS 2.2?

    2. Do you intend to use the opensuse build service so that opensuse users can easily install and use PTS 2.2?

    Regards

      1. We will be working with Unigine Corp to time it appropriately. The worst case scenario is that PTS 2.2.1 will be released with unigine-heaven.

      2. I thought before I heard it was within the OpenSuSE Build Service already (well, 2.0 or some earlier version). Bring it up with the OpenSuSE Build Service maintainer for the PTS package to get 2.2 in there.

        Well, I'd like to test, but I can't get the GUI to work. I use Fedora 11 on AMD64.

        Here the error:
        phoronix-test-suite]$ ./phoronix-test-suite gui
        PHP Fatal error: Class 'GtkWindow' not found in /home/x/Desktop/phoronix-test-suite/pts-core/objects/gtk/pts_gtk_window.php on line 23



        I installed all packages I think, I even compiled this strange php gtk stuff, installed it. But I don't know if the module is loaded or not. It's pretty hard if you need to compile and search for many solutions to get an application running. Isn't there a possibility to get this stuff running without compiling etc?

        Thanks.

          Are you running Beta 1? It shouldn't be giving that fatal error but providing a Phoronix Test Suite message instead.

          Unfortunately, PHP GTK is not packaged in Fedora or Ubuntu, so it's a bitch to get the GUI to work... Sadly building PHP GTK is the only way to get the GUI working... Though the CLI version will run straight-up, of course.

            I am running not fedora12, I run fedora 11 the final release. I know the cli version runs fine, but I want to try the GUI!

            I installed also the pts package provided by fedora, the same error if I start it with the GUI parameter. Maybe something with my php gtk installation is wrong? i took the version 2 thing and then ./buildconfig, then ./configure, then make -j3 and (as root) make install.

            Thanks!

              Did you add "extension=php_gtk.so" (or whatever the so ends up being named) to your /etc/php5/cli/php.ini ?

                  No, I did not know that I need to this. I thought a "make install" would be enough. I'll try tomorrow maybe, I don't know which php_gtk.so you mean.
                  Thanks.

                    I have just installed PHP GTK on Ubuntu 9.10, and here is how I did it:

                    1) Install dependencies using Synaptic (php5-cli, php5-dev, libgtk2.0-dev)
                    2) Run the following:
                    Code:
                    su -
                    cd /usr/share/aclocal
                    cat lt~obsolete.m4 ltoptions.m4 ltsugar.m4 ltversion.m4 >> libtool.m4
                    3) Download the PHP GTK v2.0.1 source tar
                    4) Start Terminal in the extracted location
                    5) Run ./buildconf then ./configure then make then sudo make install
                    6) Add the following line to /etc/php5/conf.d/php_gtk2.ini
                    Code:
                    extension=php_gtk2.so
                    If you are on Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit, you'll probably be able to skip steps 3-5 by doing the following
