It takes 20 seconds for phoronix-test-suite to run any commands.
Ubuntu 11.04 with Phoronix Test Suite 3.0.1~repack1-1 (phoronix-test-suite) installed from repositories.
$ time phoronix-test-suite
<usual output snipped>
Note - it was initially a 40 second delay, then I ran 'phoronix-test-suite network-setup' and configured my proxy. After that the delay was cut to 20 secs. Does anyone have any idea what the other 20s delay is caused by?
