    Hello, great news!
    This error appears very often:

    And a
    Code:

    opens firefox instead of my standard gnome browser epiphany here.


    Using an up-to-date Debian SID.

    Thanks!

    edit: and when starting the phoronix test suite as root should be a question if you relly want that in order to avoid a root owned test-results folder which is hard to remove by hand for an end-user.
    Regarding the error, that has been fixed in git.

    The most recent git commit has checking implemented to ensure that if the object doesn't exist, no error will be created but will just show "Unknown". This includes the deanjo lspci errors too.

    Regarding the browser, right now it defaults to Firefox as browser checking isn't yet implemented.

      - extract the .tar.gz
      - cd to it
      - run ./phoronix-test-suite to see all arguments
      - run ./phoronix-test-suite benchmark universe to run all of the benchmarks.

      That's really it.... It's meant to be easy (well, once all bugs have been squashed)
      got it

      Thanks!

        I really like where this is going I just installed, ran, and uploaded a nexuiz benchmark and it worked great. I would like to suggest the ability for users to add comments. Many kudos

            Michael, you certainly win at user-friendliness.

            Can't wait 'till the GUI is done, that'll be awesome - mortal humans be able to do the basic ego inflation!

                Works fine for me . One thing I have noticed however... when running the Graphics test, the Doom time demo suffers from short 2-3sec. pauses; this does not happen if I run the time demo from my own Doom 3 install, and I even get a higher score (118fps compared to 71fps on the test suite).

                  Melcar: the id software profiles are in a poor state right now... Haven't had much time yet to focus on those.

                    In the latest git code, the dependency on bcmath should be dropped now.

                    There is also a new memory benchmarking and CPU cache profile (memory-benchmark).

                      I won't be able to test the system on my systems until the weekend, but thus far this looks VERY interesting. I have a few questions about some parts of the implementation, though:
                      • How are you planning to deal with root-specific tasks such as hdparm and detailed information on lspci?
                      • What other graphics applications do you plan to support?
                      • Do you envision some sort of dedicated 3D "demo" application to be used specifically with the suite to not depend on other external apps?

                      Wow, I have so many more questions, but I'll just wait until I test the suite in my systems.

                      Thank you Michael, really. This was something needed long ago... Not that synthetic benchmarks matter (a la MadOnion) much, but that certainly gives a common and OPEN base for comparison of several systems and components to give a very good glimpse of what can you expect from any given hardware in Linux. What's more, unlike the above mentioned site this project may not only draw more attention towards Linux from IHVs, but also encourage Open Source driver developers to optimize and maybe increase the developer base for open drivers. This is very exciting!
