using pts from disconnected PC
I would like to run some tests on my home PC, but it has no internet connection. Can somebody tell me if there is a way to download suites as a separate package and bring them home for installing offline?
You could run:
Which will install all of the tests on the connected PC. After that, then run:
This will copy all of the downloaded files to ~/.phoronix-test-suite/download-cache/
Then copy that download-cache folder to the new PC in the same location. Then just run phoronix-test-suite benchmark <name> and it will use that download cache instead of downloading them directlry.
Ok, when downloading the first package, bonnie++ it says that checksum is incorrect after finishing and aborts.
Try Phoronix Test Suite 1.2.2, it should work there.

Excellent information! I may start trying this out in our server lab, but we cannot connect to the Internet. This is exactly what I needed to know for our situation.

I'll make it more known in the documentation for 1.4.
