    Default Packages For PHP5-GTK On Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

    Phoronix: Packages For PHP5-GTK On Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

    The Phoronix Test Suite is one of the few mainstream projects that uses PHP-GTK, a PHP5 extension that provides bindings for the GTK+ tool-kit on the desktop, for its user-interface. Unfortunately, PHP5-GTK packages can be found in very few distribution repositories even while the Phoronix Test Suite can be found in most any modern distribution...

    Why did you go with PHP anyway? On the web it's often enough a necessary evil, but I would never consider it for aynthing not web-related.

    It's mentioned in a number of other threads and documentation, but came down to basically reusing lots of other existing Phoronix code, needing to use lots of the same functions on the Global side but not wanting to have to write an extension for PHP to tap into it if in another language, has worked out to be quite portable, lots of experience with PHP, etc.

    No, I do Java, C/C++, etc too, but for the reasons I've had, it was done in PHP.

    I use opensuse 11.3 and I just had to add http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.3/ to my repositories. Which wasn't a big deal

    Could you post the packaging source (.dsc file, .changes file, or tarball of debian directory) so someone else can?

    I just did a dpkg --build of the files I built manually.
