    Default Change installation destination from home directory

    Hi All

    Hopefully a very quick answer available ... searched but can't find and i'm not a coder at the end of the day ...

    install.sh creates .phoronix-test-suite in home directory which is very small on the server i've been asked to test (<2GB) and due to this when installing a number suites to test comes back with error as no space ..

    I want to install all results, modules etc under a different path that does have the lots of space but can't find easy answer or whether this is supported on the command line. Happy to modify files but need to know which ones ..

    If you could let me know if there's a simple way to do this please .

    Thanks

    The directories can be modified within ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml.

    thanks Michael ... so this is changed post installation and will be reflected when called? As an aside, can the .phoronix-test-suite directories be removed that are now pointing to new location?

    It can be changed at anytime but tests need to be reinstalled once the install directory changes. Yes, the old directories can be removed.

    Default phoronix working directories and tests size

    Hello

    It's a very good idea to propose a choice for the location of some working directories (installed tests, results ..)

    Anyway, I have a question after have been confronted to a "not enough space" message (for exemaple when trying to install "pts/aio-stress" test)

    I searched in phoronix sites some infos about tests size, but unsuccesfully

    Is there any description somewhere about the size of all available tests ?

    Thanks for your help

    Kindly yours

    If running phoronix-test-suite info <test name> it should show you estimates for both files needed to be downloaded and then the environment size upon installation.

    Code:
    $ ./phoronix-test-suite info xonotic
    
    
    Phoronix Test Suite v5.0.1
    Xonotic 0.7
    
    Run Identifier: pts/xonotic-1.3.1
    Profile Version: 1.3.1
    Maintainer: Michael Larabel
    Test Type: Graphics
    Software Type: Game
    License Type: Free
    Test Status: Verified
    Project Web-Site: http://www.xonotic.org/
    Estimated Run-Time: 576 Seconds
    Download Size: 992.42 MB
    Environment Size: 1100 MB
    
    Description: This is a benchmark of Xonotic, which is a fork of the DarkPlaces-based Nexuiz game. Development began in March of 2010 on the Xonotic game.
    
    Test Installed: No
    Though for disk benchmarks like AIO-Stress, the disk size might not be reported since for some of the disk tests where there's configurable options, obviously the amount of disk space needed will vary.
