    I try hdparm-read test on KDE (we don't have gksudo):

    Code:
    =================================
    hdparm Timed Disk Reads Benchmark (Run 1 of 3)
    =================================
    ./hdparm-su: 3: gksudo: not found
    Root permission needed to run hdparm benchmark.
    I try hdparm-read test using sudo:
    Code:
    Disk To Read:
    
    1: First SATA Disk (sda)
    2: Second SATA Disk (sdb)
    3: Third SATA Disk (sdc)
    
    Please Enter Your Choice: 1
    This application executable could not be found in . or /root/pts-benchmark-env/hdparm-read/.

    RAMspeed test worked fine, but when I upload test, it says I achieved 0MB/s?

      Can you create a tools to check what is the minimum and the recommanded requirement to play a Linux video-game?

        Sacha:

        Working out some bugs in the RAMSpeed parsing, since it outputs four sets of results simultaneously as you can see. That will be fixed in the forthcoming 0.1.1 release.

        hdparm is still to be addressed as it requires root access.

        pierluc: We may evaluate that possibility, but I am sure most users with their current hardware would have no problems playing any of the recent games.

          Yes, but in the future the Linux video games will be bigger and it will be useful. It's also more professional to give this informations on a a video game web site like http://www.jeuxlinux.fr/ .

            We hope, every year we hear that but in reality there hasn't been any huge advancement in linux game publishing in years.

              Some additional aspects (tested with current git snapshot):

              a) You now require /usr/bin/time, that's ok, but then tell the ppl to install it if not present,

              b) nexuiz install requires unzip, thats also not default

              c) errors shown when compiling php: bison flex lemon are misssing, don't know if the compile really finishes or not, do you check errorlevel?

              (a+b are usally installed on ubuntu - a because of dash as sh, bash uses time builtin).

              A general problem is when you use the test in live mode: you run out of ram because yo do absolutely no cleanup. If you compiled a requirement then delete the sources (you can use --prefix=... and then make install), or delete what you compiled after you benched it. No need to keep those files.

                a. it will be more clear to users in next release.
                b. yeah
                c. It still compiles.

                The scripts will be cleaned up more once pts-core is settled... However, patches are always welcome if others wish to clean them up too.

                For all those interested, please check out the latest git and report back as there should be improved hardware and software detection (including distro name). Thanks,

                  I tried to go to benchmark directory, but it gets a 404.

                  Any help would be appreciated.

                      Up to this point it's just been me coding with the input of one other person, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time. However, there are a handful of companies now working to produce profiles for their software.
