Chess QNX.

Postby VirtualGuy » Sat Jan 28, 2012 9:54 am

Somewhere i read a few games and phchess is available for QNX.

I googled and downloaded pretty strong UCI chess engine stockfish-1.6 src. (There is a newer one which I couldn't get.)
I extracted the package and make gave only one warning:

/usr/qnx650/host/qnx6/x86/usr/bin/ntox86-ld: cannot find -lpthread

I commented out Makefile to ##LDFLAGS = -lpthread

And it worked.

Typed "go" and it suggests move.
D - displays board.

(commands are defined in uci.cpp)

Example move:
./stockfish
d
go (result = b1c3)
position moves b1c3
d
position moves b7b6 (my move)
d

But how to compile xboard now to play it?

I assume xboard is an XWindows based program. QNX does not natively support Xwindows, there are port of X available though but I have information as of their status.

Maybe other people will comment.
