For some reason, the network admin's on my Varsity LAN didn't install xboard
so when I was bored
and felt like playing chess, it wasn't there
So I downloaded xboard-4.2.6.tar.gz and did the following commands:
Then when I run xboard (./xboard) the following error messages come up:
-->Failed to start first chess program gnuchessx on localhost: gnuchessx: No such file or directory
-->Error writing to first chess program: Broken pipe
gnuchess is on the computer, but gnuchessx isn't. I would play using gnuchess, but i reaaallly prefer a graphical chessboard with point and click and all the other nice features that show off my laziness.
Please can someone help me fix this. I don't have root privelages as it is my Varsity's LAN, but I don't think that should stop me from being able to compile and run xboard.
