    For Those Looking To Help Out With PTS

    For those looking to help out with the Phoronix Test Suite, but may lack development experience, in this thread I'll begin listing different activities that are in need of work...

    - With Phoronix Test Suite 2.0 and later, due to some forthcoming features, we will be in a real need for mirrors... To host a Linux ISO and some other things. I really would appreciate any help in finding any (free) mirrors for the project, on university servers, etc.

    - More documentation / how-to guides on the Phoronix Test Suite.

    - The Phoronix Test Suite Wikipedia page could use some updating @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoronix_Test_Suite

    - Testing out PTS on distributions outside of the SuSE/RH/Ubuntu/Debian realm.

    - Provide input on the user interface

    - Testing, testing, testing

    More items will be listed shortly...

    No problem providing a mirror, either in USA or in UKGermany.
    Just tell me where to rsync from.

    I like the idea of also benchmarking min FPS and max fps in the terms of a graph... So it shows the consistence of fps.. Sometimes for instance, the game might run at 30fps but spike to 100fps. Even though on different hardware it might run at 45fps and spike at only 65fps. Fallout 3 for instance runs faster on nvidia in terms of spikes but runs smoother on ATi due to havok hardware accel etc... So a graph showing this would be helpful.

    Does PTS change the user data while testing

    I'm a beginner of testing. I have to check some old PCs, I think I stress them a while. I want to use PTS Desktop Live. Sadly I can not change the data stored on the on the hard discs. So my question is that: If I run any I/O or local disk test, will it changed the data on the discs? I think some test does changed (damaged) the original data, in that case witch local disk test will be safe for me?

    Nopes. I am not using CLI .. Instead am using GUI of Phoronix. Is it available for multiple test, cause I have only tested by running single test.

    Let me try one more time. There is no notif. while installing or while running any test. What could be the issue ?

    It's in 2.0, but not used by default from the CLI version. If you want to use it in the CLI version by default, add "notify_send_events" to the modules line in your ~/.phoronix-test-suite/user-config.xml

    Ok . I just need the answer of this question. So please let me know.

    I once saw that PTS has now got notification working (ubuntu notification) . However the 2.0 version doesn't seems to notify, is this feature released in 2.0 or planned for 2.2 ?

    Shit, I thought the accounts of wikipedia were common across every language, but they are not. Thus I have the permission to upload images in el.wikipedia.org but not in the english version.

    Edited Ok done.
