    Didn't really want to start a new thread... so I'll put a few things here.

    A few issues I've had with the 2.0 Beta:

    1. Libperl-dev must be installed or the ImageMagick Compilation won't work. (Perhaps add to list of packages added to Ubuntu apt-get?)

    2. LightsMark won't run when used in the universe-x or opengl-demo tests. (It gives a "wrong parameter" warning.) It will run if you just run it alone.

    The Parameter in opengl-demos.xml that won't work:

    A Parameter that will work: (Note the single quotes)

    Smokin-guns wont work: Missing (But it is in /usr/lib... a bad link? x64 vs x86 issue?)
    Vdrift runs but then locks up at the end. (Maybe a driver issue... because it worked on the Catalyst 9.5 driver. I'm using 9.6 now.)

    vdrift is a driver issue. You can use

    SKIP_TESTS="vdrift" phoronix-test-suite ...

    or you could put it for example in


    Till the driver issue is resolved.

    Hi Keith,

    Those two issues are now fixed in Git, thanks.

    Regarding smokin-guns, maybe. VDrift currently has a shader bug with the Catalyst driver that causes it to lock-up when exiting, but it will be fixed in Catalyst 9.8.
