Phoronix IRC Log: 2009-02-19
Kano: michaellarabel: what would be the package name needed for the gui?
Kano: michaellarabel: i tried a package with php-gtk, even updated that to 2.0.1 but still i get no gui
Kano: michaellarabel: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/php-gtk/
marshal0505: You're welcome
Kano: hi,did anybody manage to run the pts gui?
michaellarabel: Kano: ping
Kano: hi michaellarabel
michaellarabel: Kano, so what happens when you try to run: phoronix-test-suite gui-gtk
Kano: i used gui as option and i got that the module is not installed
michaellarabel: gui option is the same. Hmmm. Do you have the module set to be automatically loaded in your php.ini or conf.d/ files
Kano: php module must be loaded
Kano: not that i know of
Kano: how to do so
michaellarabel: To the end of your php.ini file you can try adding: extension=php_gtk2 if that is the name of the module you installed.
michaellarabel: I'll be right back.
Kano64: so this is my debian 64 bit system with php_gtk2
Kano64: echo extension=php_gtk2.so > /etc/php5/conf.d/gtk2.ini
Kano64: The PHP GTK module must be loaded for the GUI.
Kano64: This module can be found @ http://gtk.php.net/
Kano64: if i have got a typo in that file i get an error, so i guess it is active
Kano64: whats wrong?
Kano: any idea?
michaellarabel: Kano: back. Try removing the .so from the extension line
Kano: results in error
Kano: there are 2 other config files in that dir,all have .so at the end
michaellarabel: Try: php -m | grep gtk
michaellarabel: then you can see if its being loaded
Kano64: php -m|grep gtk
michaellarabel: so it is loaded as php-gtk?
Kano64: looks like
michaellarabel: Well, I can commit this to git or just try modifying: pts-core/options/gui_gtk.php. On line 29, change "gtk" to "php-gtk"
Kano64: ah, now there is a gui
Kano64: cant you load that extension when it is not loaded?
michaellarabel: Okay, I'll add an OR condition for that line.
michaellarabel: With PHP there is a dlopen() but with recent versions of Ubuntu and other distros, that option is disabled in the config. And when trying to use that option when it's disabled, it will result in a fatal error. And I don't think there is anyway to pre-emptively check to see if its disabled.
Kano64: when i clickon run nothign happens
michaellarabel: I know about the run button part of it, that will be fixed within a few hours.
Kano64: more info does nothing too
Kano64: should you have got a install button instead?
michaellarabel: For more info button, go to the results tab. that is implemented there right now.
Kano64: on the available teststab
michaellarabel: That all will be there within a few hours. Most of what's done so far is just to do with displaying the test/suite/result information when clicking on those and then all of the information from the View menu
michaellarabel: and whoops, looks like there might be a bug in Git. Are the tests and everything showing up for you in the different tabs?
michaellarabel: Ah yeah, big bug in Git.
Kano: well will let you test for some h *g*
Kano: if somebody has got zero ballistics then join the playground
michaellarabel: And Kano, where did you have a PHP GTK x86_64 Deb package from?
Kano: well i updated the package to 2.0.1 then used pbuilder
michaellarabel: If you have that all done, mind sending me the package for it? Will save me some time.
Kano: ypu know pbuilder?
Kano: well in case the lenny deb does not work just use the dsc
michaellarabel: Works :) Thanks.
Kano: do you like that packaging?
Kano: which the module not enabled by default?
michaellarabel: Packaging worked fine. I just added a gtk2.ini to /etc/php5/cli/conf.d/
Kano: i used the packageing form the url i posted before, from mentors.debian.net, just updated
Kano: would be better if no config override would be needed
michaellarabel: Yeah but unfortunately dlopen is being disabled these days
Milyardo: win 18
Kano: hi michaellarabel , is the gui fully working now?
michaellarabel: Kano: Yes, should be. Besides for test options (except for the save options) still being shown at CLI level
michaellarabel: Just pushed more to Git.
Kano: ok, will try again
Kano: did you think of a little profile for live cd / dvd use?
Deanjo: 2 new seagate 1.5 TB drives + 48 hours of use = 120+ bad sectors on both
Kano: something that does not take up so much space
michaellarabel: I haven't yet made a test suite for that yet, but using: phoronix-test-suite build-suite you can build your own
michaellarabel: Kano: is it working for you now?
Deanjo: won't ever buy another seagate
Kano: well i could start the test, first some focus problems somehow
Kano: i guess you need to open a new terminal later when you do run it from menu
raevol: Deanjo: seems a bit excessive, seagate drives have always been good to me, though i never get bleeding-edge capacity ones
Kano: Deanjo: raid?
Kano: no cooling
Deanjo: Temps never hit over 35 C
Kano: michaellarabel: tested gtkperf, showed 48 s for first test. average 0
Deanjo: And these were manufactured a week ago with the "fixed" firmware
Kano: i guess you ran into some locale problem
Kano: because i have got total time 40,xx but you would exepct 40.xx
Kano: use always (!) lang overrides
Deanjo: raevol, pretty much every 7200.11 series I own has had to be replaced
Deanjo: They are simply junk drives
redeeman: Deanjo: what posessed you to purchase those disks when you knew perfectly well they were bugged to the extreme?
Deanjo: Needed huge capacity to back up a raid set
redeeman: i don't believe that is an answer to the question
raevol: hmm, i have 2 400 gig ones, are those the same series?
Deanjo: They lasted at least that long to back up and restore it
Kano: michaellarabel: LC_ALL= LC_CTYPE= LC_MESSAGES= LANG=
Kano: use that
Kano: thats what i use, should work with everything then
Kano: be sure after last LANG= is a space. do that in your execute script part
michaellarabel: Kano: For what?
Kano: you live in the use
Kano: i dont
Kano: i have different languages for apps
Deanjo: They were the only things in big enough capacity that I could get locally redeeman
Kano: or , instead of . for numbers
redeeman: Deanjo: ever heard of many small makes big?
Kano: that forces 100% that all apps run in your language
raevol: Deanjo: why do you need 3 TB of space in only 2 drives/
Kano: so you can parse em
michaellarabel: Ah. One of my laptops is installed with all Norwegian localizations and such, but hadn't hit that issue. But will look into it.
Deanjo: raevol, that's how big my raid 5 set is.
raevol: only 2 drives?
Kano: when norway would use , instead of . then you would see that with gtkperf. somebody in the forum had that problem too and i mentioned the fix there too
Deanjo: No, the drives were purchased to back up a 3tb raid 5 set
raevol: why didn't you get, say, 4 750 gig drives?
Deanjo: It would cost mot
raevol: more than replacing bad 1.5 TB ones?
michaellarabel: Kano: Besides that is the GUI working fine?
raevol: and if you have 3 TB of stuff, shouldn't cost not be an oject?
Deanjo: Well the 1.5's are being refunded in an hour
raevol: oh cool, good customer service
Deanjo: Ya my local store knows me to well :D
raevol: i bet ;)
Kano: michaellarabel: i need to run a test that works to say that, i tested only one and that did not ;)
michaellarabel: Kano: Try like LAME Mp3 Encoding :)
Kano: started pts with lang override
Kano: now it must have it,but when i click on more info i still see no results
Kano: run worked
Kano: but i see no result
Kano: in a webbrowser
Deanjo: Besides raevol, the seagate 7200.11 750's are identical to the 1.5 TB's. Just less platters
raevol: well, then buy a different series
Deanjo: That's the only series they make now. The 7200.12's are not out yet and the 7200.10 and 9 's are discontinued
raevol: then buy a different brand?
Deanjo: If I could find hitachi's locally I would
Deanjo: New egg in canada is overpriced
Deanjo: Not as bad as tiger direct though
Kano: michaellarabel: i used only save but did not submit
Kano: michaellarabel: any idea?
michaellarabel: Kano: for....?
Kano: i see no results
Kano: no browser started
michaellarabel: oh, when u click on the button?
Kano: but i selected save and did not submit
michaellarabel: if you run: phoronix-test-suite show-results does it show
Kano: the submit default i disliek too
Kano: hmm note with list-results
Kano: maybe something is wrong with your input?
michaellarabel: What's your justification for not liking Global Results default?
Kano: i do not like to upload results for interal tests
Kano: and that are >90% of my tests
Kano: hmm tested again and now it asked mit in the window if i want to upload but i selected it wont?!
Kano: on installed tests tab, more information button is useless
michaellarabel: I know, right now the More Information button isn't utilized there but it will be, Kano.,
Kano: maybe store the preference in userconfig
michaellarabel: Kano: Any other requests for the UI?
Kano: michaellarabel: no, i just wanted to test it
michaellarabel: Kano: Plenty more features will be coming soon :)
Deanjo: michaellarabel, you around?
michaellarabel: Deanjo, yes
Deanjo: Just tried running the latest suite. When doing a run to save the results, it hangs after the summary of the runs. That did not happen in Alpha 0
michaellarabel: what sort of hang? Does it ever continue? I haven't hit such a bug where after printing the text results to the screen it just stops.
Deanjo: Nope it just sits there at the summary. Never proceeds
Deanjo: If I go back to Alpha0, it runs fine
michaellarabel: by the summary you mean the text numbers showing values from all runs?
Deanjo: like this http://pastebin.com/m5f799b5d
michaellarabel: how did u just upload some results to Phoronix Global from qgears2?
Deanjo: That was with the alpha0
michaellarabel: I am trying a run right now with Git master...
michaellarabel: were u running Git or the tar.gz?
Deanjo: If the results are not saved then the test completes as expected and drops you back to the prompt
michaellarabel: http://global.phoronix-test-suite.com/index.php?k=profile&u=michael-15378-17286-4447 runs fine for me
Deanjo: I ran git and the official alpha1 with the same results
Deanjo: Doing the same thing in a Bluewhite VM I've got going too
michaellarabel: Are you able to try it with git-bisect? I don't see this problem.
Deanjo: No idea never used git
michaellarabel: http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-bisect.html if you want to try it
Deanjo: I'll have to investigate on the weekend when I have more time
michaellarabel: or it might be fixed in Git by then indirectly.
