Running Passmark on Clear Linux

For those who want to run the Passmark bench for Linux on Clear Linux, here are some prerequisites:

After the install and you try to run the program and see this:

“./pt_linux_x64: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”

You need to add the compat-common bundle to handle the libncurses request.

“sudo swupd bundle-add compat-common”

If you see this error:

“Error opening terminal: xterm-256color”

Passmark is attempting to open a console of its own to display its status and results. The default terminal type in Clear Linux is xterm-256color.

For Passmark to work you need to set the terminal to a standard xterm type.

“export TERM=xterm”

Once these are complete you should be able to run the Passmark bench.

However of note, on Linux they only run the compute benchmarks not the graphics bench.

Have fun.
