As said akspecs this version requires an Internet connexion (to communicate with primatelabs.com).
One *can* run the 32-bit version on an a x86_64 Arch, as much as the system has lib32-glibc & lib32-gcc-libs from 'multilib'.

@HalJordan: finally done

32-bit mode only.....???

HalJordan commented on 2014-10-17 02:25

I'm apparently a few months late, but I like that idea. I'd advise you mention that in the description of both to avoid people flagging geekbench2 out of date on a regular basis.

anyone likes the idea of renaming this pkgbuild to geekbench227 as this is the last version that shows the results locally - without involuntary upload to geekbench site and bumping the "geekbench" to the latest version?

new version available on site 2.4.3

@Mrs.Smith1974: please make sure you read the comments

@Neschur: you did read my previous comment, right?

jose1711 commented on 2012-04-24 10:54

seems like a valid argument to stick to this version (and not update this pkgbuild)

akspecs commented on 2012-04-24 02:04

Actually - interestingly enough it seems as if 2.3.1 only makes geekbench inconvinient to use. It disallows any usage if offline because we are most likely to use the "32 bit" trial benchmark, and requires usage of the paid version of the tool for off line benchmarks. So 2.2.7 is the only last reasonable version to use.

If in the past you used geekbench --benchmark --no-upload --export-html file.html or /opt/geekbench/geekbench_x86_32 " " that is no longer possible in the new version. All results are automatically uploaded to their server and no usage offline is possible unlesss I am mistaken.

2.3.1 appears to be out

@akspecs: thank you, updated. i might create an autocheck/autoupdate script at some point like i am doing for a few other pkgbuilds.

Here's an updated PKGBUILD with updated pkgver and md5sum (for version 2.2.7) : (the text file can be looked at in your web browser)
text file : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/45721253/os-related/linux/archlinux/geekbench/PKGBUILD
tarball : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/45721253/os-related/linux/archlinux/geekbench/geekbench-2.2.7.tar.gz

In the future just update the pkgver field in the file to which version is current and update the md5sum field. No architecture specific source.

Kind of a neat benchmark because I just found out my old Latitude D630 running linux-ck-corex ranks twice as fast and my Windows and hackintosh partitions.

Source has moved to http://s3.amazonaws.com/geekbench/Geekbench-2.2.3-Linux.tar.gz and ver updated to 2.2.3. Of course, hash has changed also. I have an updated PKGBUILD available (PM me if you would like a copy), but will let the maintainer update this page.
