this is the first release of autocontest.pl
Use it at your own risk, I just can say that "It works for me(tm)"
A simple (and ugly) PERL script for automated kernel benchmarks, it was
written for contest <http://contest.kolivas.net/>, it simply generates a
custom (dummy) runlevel and boot every kernel image found in
/etc/lilo.conf in this runlevel, perform contest, reboot the next image,
perform contest, etc.
Err OK, what do I need to run it?
PERL 5 will do, hopefully.
LILO, with it's config file in /etc/lilo.conf otherwise edit the script 8)
Bash, along with cp, cat, rm, and find
A directory /usr/src/linux-2.4.19 with the 2.4.19 kernel sources in (this
is for contest)
How do I run it?
perl autoncontest.pl and then cross your fingers 8)
Will it screw my initscripts?
I don't know
Why your english is so crappy?
I'm Chilean, I speak Spanish 8)
How it works?
Read the source, Luke.
It was tested on RedHat 7.3 and (null), and debian 2.2, if it runs in
another version/distro, please let me know
Questions/Comments/Patches/Rewrites/Rants/Flames are welcome.
