  • BurnInTest Linux V5 Beta Release

    BurnInTest Linux V5 is now available for beta testing.

    Current Version: V5.0 is now available
    Download link:
    BurnInTest Linux V5
    BurnInTest Linux ARM V5

    Please contact us to report any issues found in this build.

    License keys: V4 keys will not work in the V5 beta. New V5 keys will be required for the final V5 release

    System Requirements
    V5 of BurnInTest Linux is built under a slightly new development environment compared to V4, as such the system requirements have changed;
    • 64bit Linux required
    • Linux kernel 4.16 or higher
    • glibc 2.25 or higher
    • Qt 5.9.4 and higher
    • Open GL 1.2 and higher (for 3D graphics test plus working Open GL drivers for your video card).
    • libusb 1.0
    What's new
    • New Advanced network test and endpoint utility
    • New Updated RAM test based on Windows version that uses a separate executable (up to 4 instances) for testing. This greatly increases testing speed, will allow better management of the amount of RAM under test and hopefully avoiding triggering the OOM killer on some Linux distributions where it is overly aggressive.
    • New Battery test, added battery information collection and test
    • New Battery graph tab, added battery charge/discharge graph (requires QtCharts to be installed)
    • New Temperature test, check selected temperature sensors don't exceed set thresholds
    • New Temperature graph tab, added temperature sensors graph (requires QtCharts, lm-sensors (CPU temps), hddtemp or smartctl (HDD temps) to be installed)
    • Sound test, updated to use stereo audio instead of mono
    • Sound test, changed the underlying methods used for accessing the sound hardware to better support some Linux distributions
    • USB Test, added "Automatically select all" option, detected USB devices, USB3 speed choice & cycle options to configuration options
    • USB Test, added USB3 benchmark to start of USB3 test
    • Serial Test, changed RTS/DSR testing option to be two separate options
    • Serial Test, removed an extra sleep in the middle of a testing cycle that was slowing down higher baud speeds disproportionately.
    • System info, fixed an issue where RAM was reported as MB instead of GB on some systems
    • Management console, added session & result IDs to log and status message on successful connection. Also checks for errors on status/result message updates.
    • Plugins, fixed plugin reporting the wrong error string for a no operations error ("General instruction operation verification failed" was being reported)
    • Scripting, added SETDISK and SETDISKDESTRUCTIVE
    Changes since Beta 1
    • Sound test, updated to use stereo audio instead of mono
    • Sound test, changed the underlying methods used for accessing the sound hardware to better support some Linux distributions
    Changes since Beta 2
    • NEW 2D GPU RAM Test (x86 only) - Added OpenCL test for GPU RAM, similar to the BurnInTest windows version
    • 3D test, changed to be based on QOpenGLWidget/QOpenGLFunctions that allows the 3D test to be used on both OpenGL and OpenGl-ES systems and removes the dependency on the QT5OpenGL library
    • 2D Lines and bitmaps test, made the individual sub tests of the 2D test run a bit longer each cycle
    • Disk Test - added block size selection to preferences
    • Disk Test - Better btrfs support, new way to get used/free space for btrfs disks to try and prevent issues with disks reporting as full
    • Scripting, added SETSERIALPORTS command for setting serial port test via scripting
    • Scripting, fixed temperature collection stopping script from exiting
    • Scripting, fixed script not exiting cleanly from command line version
    • Scripting, Fixed "running" status not being set correctly in command line version when using a script
    • USB test - updated test window information displayed, simplified display of loopback, read and write benchmark values, added firmware info

    I am zero in Linux and don't know how to build an iso file to test with Linux bootable USB can you help?

      Yes we can.

      We have a pre-made bootable USB drive that runs BurnInTest.
      It also includes licenses for a bunch of software.
      It doesn't include the beta releases, but does include 12 months of software updates.
