Install and Run UnixBench on CentOS or Debian VPS

UnixBench is a popular server benchmarking tool. To install and run UnixBench, just do the following (for CentOS):

# yum install gcc gcc-c++ make libXext-devel
# wget -c http://byte-unixbench.googlecode.com/files/unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
# tar xvzf unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
# cd unixbench-5.1.2
# make
# ./Run

UnixBench should begin running tests and output a final score. For Debian/Ubuntu:

# apt-get install libx11-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libxext-dev perl  perl-modules make
# wget http://byte-unixbench.googlecode.com/files/unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
# tar xvf unixbench-5.1.2.tar.gz
# cd unixbench-5.1.2
# ./Run
