    Phoronix: Benchmarking On Ubuntu Just Became Easier

    The Phoronix Test Suite was accepted into the Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) universe repository this morning. What this means is that it's now drop-dead simple to benchmark your system running Ubuntu 9.04 or later...

    For those interested in the GTK2 GUI, there's a slew of updates in Git There's actually almost a feature parity now with the CLI and GUI options.

    No. That package would be over 10GB+ in size and rarely any users would ever use all of the tests found within the Phoronix Test Suite. But even a package of just the most common test files would be unlikely since I am strapped for server resources and bandwidth.

    Well, its this system which helps you automatically compile a whole software from source code and make a package with all dependencies auto-installed.

    But I think for Phoronix Suite which has binary apps like Urban Terror which is not Open Source, this won't be applicable

    I would love for Phoronix Test Suite to appear on the Ubuntu ISO, but realistically that is unlikely it would occur since it means php-cli would also then need to be spun with Ubuntu, etc.

    Below is the visual system information area for it right now (as of what's in Git as 7PM EST, it could easily change soon, even today):

    Nope, I am using the GTK2 module and everything. Let's debug this problem on IRC.
