Hi Sir:

I'm going to use stress mode for a stability test.  however, I don't find any optional parameter in --help manual.   If I directly run --stress, no output displayed and seems the test goes forever.
I'm using linux version of Geekbench.

    Thank you for your message, and I'm sorry you're having problems running stress mode under Linux. I was able to reproduce the problem you encountered. We will fix the lack of output in an upcoming release.

    In the meantime let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help out.

    Thank you again for your patience. Geekbench 2.4.3 is now available which fixes the problems you encountered running stress tests under Linux.

    Let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to help out.
