    Question Offline testing

    I'd like to be able to do the testing while the computer is completely offline. Is there a site/list of all necessary dependencies that can be install either from the Ubuntu 8.04 install CD or via .deb packages?

    Thanks for your help!

    you'll have to install pts on another/same box with the internet, do a make-cache, copy the cache over to another box with php-gd php-cli and the make cache folder, and run the install process, it'll notice the make cache folder as long as you place it in ~/.phoronix-test-suite/cache (can't quite remember exactly but i think thats right).

    ~/.phoronix-test-suite/download-cache/

    and you run phoronix-test-suite make-download-cache to generate the cache at that same location.

    That's almost it.

    You'll need at least php-cli and php-gd on all your machines. You can check the additional dependencies required by some tests by looking in the pts/distro-xml folder and opening the relevant xml file.

    To be able to run all the tests on offline machines you'll need to download and install them all on an internet connected pc by using:
    Code:
    ./phoronix-test-suite install-all
    then, to make the downloaded files available for sharing, use
    Code:
    ./phoronix-test-suite make-download-cache

    This will copy all the installation files into ~/.phoronix-test-suite/download-cache
    You can copy this folder to your offline machines and pts will then use this to install the tests.
