    Unhappy Many tests fail: empty result w/ PTS v1.8.1, 2.0.0 & 2.2.0a1

    Hey, really do appreciate PTS features and web site, especially when advising someone about this or that hardware/tech

    Now I've got serious issue with PTS on a Mandriva 2009.1 x86_64.
    Can get no results with most of the tests/suites I've tried lately, with PTS v1.8.1 (rpm), v2.0 (rpm and source) as well as v2.2.0a1 (git ):

    There are 3 different cases:

    1) 7zip runs fine, as well as 1080videoHD and superPI.

    2) no result at all. Console's empty with "Average: 0.00" at the end. THe case with lame mp3, FFMpeg, mencoder

    3) Test runs fine (prints timing for each pass) but no result's visible, like with Gzip, Ogg Vorbis, Monkey & FLAC

    Any help welcome.

    Have launched PTS with the 'benchmark' option, and installed any required dependacies each test required.

    Have moved ~/.phoronix-test-suite and let it be re-created at 1st PTS restart, re-downloading all the necessary files

    Issue being the same with packaged/source, system wide/user, PTS 1.8.1, 2.0.0 and 2.2.0a1, might be OS related. Like a missing dependency. If that's the case, IMHO PTS doesn't help a lot finding what's missing.

    Here are some possibly related issues I've followed without succes so far:


    Examples of the 2 cases I have (results on each passes without global result, and no result printed at all):

    $ ./phoronix-test-suite benchmark compress-gzip

    In regards to the first problem, it's showing the time with the decimal point being delimited by a comma rather than a period, likely due to your locale settings. Though PTS should be overriding that... I can try using number_format() to possibly work around that, but I haven't heard of any of those issues in a while.

    I think your two other problems might also be related to that as well.

    Hey Michael,
    Ok thanks for your input.
    locale variables are all on 'fr_FR.UTF-8' (but 'LC_ALL'), as they probably are on most of French speaking people's desktop systems (must be equivalent for Canadian French, Belgium, etc):
    $ locale
    Code:
    LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_CTYPE=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_NUMERIC=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_TIME=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_COLLATE=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_MONETARY=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_MESSAGES=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_PAPER=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_NAME=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_ADDRESS=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_TELEPHONE=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_MEASUREMENT=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_IDENTIFICATION=fr_FR.UTF-8
    LC_ALL=
    What can i do?
    Never encountered this issue since 2008 til April 2009 (following PTS version, and date when i upgraded my desktop system with Mandriva 2009.1)
    Should i temporarily assign "en_US" to the LC_NUMERIC variable before running PTS? If so, should I also recompile the binaries (mplayer, mencoder etc)?

    Can you temporarily override LC_NUMERIC? In PTS we override most of the LC_* env variables, but LC_NUMERIC might be missing. Try that one and then just re-run the test, you shouldn't need to rebuild. If that fixes it, I will override that one too in pts-core.

    and if the problem persists, try some of the other LC_ variables

    Hi Michael,

    I'm also running a French Mandriva and I had the same issue with iozone test (result was Average: 0.00 MB/s).

    I tried to override LC_NUMERIC:
    $ export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8
    $ phoronix-test-suite benchmark iozone
    and now it works fine.

    Please fix the decimal issue as it will certainly hit many non EN/US people.

    Thanks

    Julien

    Thanks, will add in LC_NUMERIC in there too.

    Thumbs up

    @morgoth: Many thanks for your input! was too busy to go any further.
    @Michael: thank you for implementing LC_NUMERIC in a future PTS release as an internationalization effort for non English users
