    Default Problems with download-cache on machine with no internet connection

    Hello people,

    I am I having some issues with using the download-cache on a machine without internet....

    What I did was install phoronix v3.6.1 on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine. Then I downloaded some tests, and I filled the download-cache using the "make-download-cache" command. Then I installed phoronix v4.4.1 on a virtual machine with Ubuntu 12.04 I copied the cache over, disconnected it of the internet by taking down the ethernet interface and installed the same tests. It took it from the download-cache directory no problem. So far so good!

    Then I installed phoronix v4.4.1 on an OpenSUSE v11.3 machine which has a network connection but no internet. The installation went fine and I repeated the same trick as above. For some reason on this machine it will not look at the download-cache directory. I have checked permissions, I have tried to specify an alternative local cache directory (and of course copied the cache files to it). It will not work. The program itself seems to be working fine.

    I wonder if this is because it does not like using cache from other distributions? Probably a different machine architecture?

    Thx in advance

    (EDIT: removed a typo in a version number)
