I have installed PTS 2.8 in debian squeeze. Must i remove it in order to install 3.0?
Also just checking but i ask cause i dont see it mentioned in the site or in faq. So PTS 2.8 cant sent results to openbenchmark?
From my experience, 2.8 will not send results to openbenchmarking.org. You can install 3.0 without removing 2.8 no problem. It just updates the scripts.
One thing I did notice though, 3.0 doesn't use the same 'installed-tests' folder, it puts a pts folder inside the 'installed-tests' folder. You should build a download-cache folder... I forget the exact syntax, but just type 'phoronix-test-suite' and look for it. Should be something like 'phoronix-test-suite build-download-cache'.
Then you can do a rm -Rf .phoronix-test-suite/installed-tests/*
Then install 3.0
Then run/install whichever benchmarks you want and it should find most of them in your download cache. A lot have been updated or added though and will will still have to download.
