Thread: Graphics Benchmarks

  1. #1

    Default Graphics Benchmarks

    I was wanting to benchmark my graphics card with something that would really put some stress to it, but the only thing I could find was SPEC Viewperf10, and not only does it not seem to stress the card at all, but it doesn't work that well on my system and I keep getting a some error like GetXenvironInfo: no window set.

    Are there any other good free ones? Or even ones you have to buy?

    Thanks, I am currently installing all the packages for it, though I didn't realize how much it had to download (it has been downloading and installing for about 5 hours). It seems to be having many errors but I can't make any sense of it, so i hope it works.

    O.K. It is still downloading stuff, currently it is downloading SPEC Viewperf 10, which I already have, I wish it would have said something about how many things it was going to download. This is crazy... I am afraid of closing the terminal though because I think it might just screw it up and I still be left with all of those things installed.

    Either you install through zypper or yast, both of them give a installation summary - telling this much of data will be installed/removed before starting the actual installation and asking for user permission to start. You could have deduced from the data to be downloaded that how much time it is going to take depending on your connection speed.

    I wasn't downloading through yast or zypper. I already had the core program installed, it was installing the test packages with it's own installer. I don't think you can download the Phoronix test packages through yast, at least I couldn't find them. It didn't say how much the total download would be all together, though it did give individual sizes and time estimations.

    I went ahead and closed it because the tests are installed in one directory in the home folder, and they are separate from the program itself, so it didn't affect anything. And all the ones I didn't want were easy to remove.

    The only problem now is that it won't work, there seems to be errors all over the place. I get this when first starting the program: PHP Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in /usr/share/phoronix-test-suite/pts-core/phoronix-test-suite.php on line 43

    And this when trying to start the gui: i get something saying the PHP-GTK module is not installed, along with : PHP Notice: Undefined index: TERM in /usr/share/phoronix-test-suite/pts-core/options/gui_gtk.php on line 35. I have installed the php gtk module.

    If I try to run a test I get: ./backend: error while loading shared libraries: libfreeimage.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I face this problem when the software I install also puts shared libraries in a different folder. Usually, shared libs wil be present in or installed in /usr/local/lib if installing through yast or zypper.

    You can do a "find" to look if libfreeimage.so.3 exists on your system. Check to see if the folder in which this file libfreeimage.so.3 is present has an entry in "/etc/ld.so.conf". If not, add it(whole path, not $ value) and run "ldconfig".

    Hope this helps..

    Sorry can not help you on other errors as I am not familiar with them.

    Thanks, I already figured it out though. I didn't have freeimage3 installed, and there was something else that wasn't installed too. I have the command line test working, but not the gui, but that is not a big deal.

    I can't seem to find any tests that will run without getting some sort of error that has to be fixed first. Now trying to run quake4 I get: ./bin/Linux/x86/quake4.x86: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I have the SDL package installed, and the directory that file is in is in the /etc/ld.so.conf file. Why does there always seem to be something missing...
