PTS 32-bit Windows Support?
I have used PTS in the past for benchmarking in linux. Unfortunately, I am currently working on a project that requires me to use 32-bit Windows XP. I was pleasantly surprised to see Windows support in PTS although I understand this was developed for 64-bit Windows 7.
My question is whether anyone has had any luck running on 32-bit Windows and what if any modifications were required. For example, I know I can run Warsow on my 32-bit machine, but PTS always tries launching the 64-bit binaries. Any advice here? I have tried using both 3.0.0 beta 2 and 2.8.2.
I have no plans to provide PTS3 Windows 32-bit support, but I would accept patches if someone implemented support within the test profiles. The Phoronix Test Suite (pts-core) client should support running on Windows 32-bit fine, but all the test profiles are setup for using 64-bit binaries. It would be just a matter of placing in the checks to see the architecture and launching the x86 binary instead, similar to how it's done on other platforms.
Thank you for the reply! I'll see what I can get working and report back if it is anything worthwhile.
