  • PHP-GTK is getting increasingly stale - any comment?

    The project's website (http://gtk.php.net/) looks like it's been neglected for over a year. There are some bad links in the resources section, and the last news update was the 28th of May, 2009. The latest version doesn't support php 5.3 (it was released in 2008).

    How will the Phoronix Test Suite's GUI frontend cope if/when PHP-GTK gets too obsolete?

    Ahh, nice news that I missed while on vacation.. this is what a lack of internet access will do to you - make you look stupid!

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Why doesn't anybody simply use the openSUSE build service to create the packages? It's fully capable of creating Ubuntu packages.

    Just a quick update, I got PHP-GTK installed on Ubuntu 10.04 and giving a few feedback results to Micheal to get the gui in a state where the latest git can have gui driven test results.

    The same way I'm adding profiles to my rudimentary kommander script for the tests, enter your test command, save test profile, shell out to cli, run profiles test command, write results to file, read file for results. A dependency list is also easy enough to store in a human readable and editable form using a plain text box which calls upon that dependency list on the detected or picked OS.

    PTS is for the most part just a collection of shell commands for the various apps that are easily enough stored in plain text files. Doing it in a C or C++ would allow simple binary packages that are not heavily dependent on a PHP install with all the needed modules.
