blo: hi, can anyone give me a hint about how can I save the graphs from pts to common formats like jpg or png?
vadi2: Did I miss out on something, or pts distro doesn't fit on a regular cd ala ubuntu?
michaellarabel: vadi2: PTS Desktop Live never has
blo: michaellarabel: How did you use to export the graphs from pts to your articles?
michaellarabel: blo: Which article?
blo: Any article where you used pts to benchmark.
michaellarabel: just saved them...
blo: I suppose you mean opened in browser and saved them manually to svg.
michaellarabel: I use the PNG renderer
blo: I don't see cli option to change the render engine.
blo: Maybe I missed something in the docs
michaellarabel: You need to have PHP GD installed and it will auto-default to GD render, or when it is installed, you can change the setting in ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml... there are also JPEG, Flash/SWF renders
blo: I didn't find such option in that file. Though in graph-config.xml I have PNG , GD library is installed but if I merge the results it renders the graphs as svg.
michaellarabel: are you sure you have PHP GD installed?
blo: yes, and I enables it in php.ini as well
michaellarabel: then it should render to PNG
