Works for me: 1 desktop & 2 laptops all using the Mate Desktop Environment.

sirius: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU -- real:10m2.380s user:4m36.831s sys:4m48.276s

sedna: laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 -- real:9m4.268s user:3m45.730s sys:4m33.048s

mercury: laptop 32GB AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with Radeon Graphics -- real:14m23.069s user:6m45.132s sys:5m34.944s

It is curious that sedna (an old slow CPU) runs the performances tests significantly faster than mercury (a modern faster CPU)!

Works for me, it's been up for a couple of hours now with no issues noticed.
The regression tests pass OK. AMD 965, x86_64 work station, SSD's > RAID1. Plasma DE from Zawertun's COPR. Running X-org, nVidia GT 1030 using nVidia RPM's from RPMFusion (470.74)

Works fine. Default and performance regression tests also pass on all my systems:

  • Ryzen 5800X on ASUS ROG X570-E with NVidia GTX 1070 running rpmfusion drivers
  • dell XPS 13 9370 (Intel Core i7 8550U / UHD Graphics 620)

On my old laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo T6570 with Nvidia GeForce 310M with kernel regression test I found a warn on ./default/sysfs-perms.

After read the logs file it said found a writable file fixed_rate_idx. Then I change the permission of file mentioned to read only and run the test again. Now all are passed.

But I don't know what actually the different between make file fixed_rate_idx writeable or read only on the system.
