  • Ran phoronix-test-suite default-benchmark, where do I see results & send information?

    I was in the process of installing the Nvidia drivers and somehow I got directed to this site and during the install prompt (adding repository) it asked if I wanted to run tests

    - Help Wanted: Mesa Updates for Intel/AMD users, ping us if you want to help do this work, we're shorthanded.

    ## WARNINGS:

    This PPA is currently in testing, you should be experienced with packaging before you dive in here:

    Volunteers welcome!

    ### How you can help:

    ## Install PTS and benchmark your gear:

    sudo apt-get install phoronix-test-suite

    Run the benchmark:

    phoronix-test-suite default-benchmark openarena xonotic tesseract gputest unigine-valley

    and then say yes when it asks you to submit your results to Then grab a cup of coffee, it take
    s a bit for the benchmarks to run. Depending on the version of Ubuntu you're using it might preferable for you to g
    rabs PTS from upstream directly:

    ## Share your results with the community:

    Post a link to your results (or any other feedback to):

    Remember to rerun and resubmit the benchmarks after driver upgrades, this will allow us to gather a bunch of data o
    n performance that we can share with everybody.

    If you run into old documentation referring to other PPAs, you can help us by consolidating references to this PPA.

    If someone wants to go ahead and start prototyping on `software-properties-gtk` on what the GUI should look like, p
    lease start hacking!

    ***I selected "Yes" to the above to do the testing. The following is the rest of the install process & testing process****************

    Now I'm done and IDK what else I need to do to see the results, comparisons or to send the data. It took about 90-120 mins and I still don't have the nvidia graphics drivers installed.

    Now I also have lost my 2nd monitor, I had 2 identical ones side by side, not it disabled my non-primary monitor and when I enable that monitor, the old primary disappears. Could this be from the program I just ran?

    So where is this log viewer?
    -how to I compare these results?
    -Is there anything else I need to do, maybe submit a file (if they are even saved anywhere, I didn't see anything - a location would be great!
