  • Feedback & Feature Requests

    Feel free to post your Phoromatic feature requests, feedback, and bugs in this thread. I will also be updating this thread with various Phoromatic notes.

    About right now the only warning/word of caution that I have is that when running tests through Phoromatic it doesn't have support for installing any external dependencies for a test profile, if the user Phoromatic is being run as is not root. So either run "phoronix-test-suite install-dependencies all" before starting Phoromatic, just ensure you have all dependencies installed, or that all the tests themselves installed that you will be running through Phoromatic.

        Can someone provide an example of phoromatic working, running a test, sending results etc, including an example of setting up a test-schedule and a test, please?

        A list of what needs to be installed, (in any linux distribution at all as an example, just state which distribution it is) would also be incredibly useful (because then I could simply install that distribution and follow your example.)

        Thank you.
