Bug report : need to install glibc-static on CentOS, for example for pts/fs_mark
Just to let you know, I had to do the following manually before installing some tests :
yum install glibc-static
I am running CentOS 6.3, with kernel 3.6.x, and using pts version 4.0.1.
This was needed at least for pts/fs_mark and pts/sqlite.
Otherwise I got the following error on linking :
cc -static -o fs_mark fs_mark.o lib_timing.o
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
So you might have to add some dependencies for some tests, so phoronix installs them by itself.
Let me know if you need more details or help on testing
pts/crafty and pts/scimark needs unzip
I needed to do "yum install unzip", also on CentOS 6.3 and pts 4.0.1
Also need to install patch command
I also had to do a "yum install patch".
The pts/apache-1.4.0 and pts/nginx-1.1.0 silently failed to install without patch. I.e., they were reported as successfully installed, but the exections of the tests failed.
Here is the excerpt from apache install log "
make: Leaving directory `/root/.phoronix-test-suite/installed-tests/pts/apache-1.4.0/httpd-2.2.21'
/root/.phoronix-test-suite/test-profiles/pts/apache-1.4.0/install.sh: line 17: patch: command not found
