Re: Xiphos 0.5

Nice jump of 69 ELO and 4 places in CCRL 40/4 as can be seen on my page based on the CCRL list here: https://linuxchess.richardlloyd.org.uk/ I just added the language the engine is written in to the Source column as an extra bit of info. Xiphos is now solidly in the top 10 and not far off tne most r...

Re: Linux friendly engines at all levels

It only covers the top engines based on CCRL ratings, but you might like my page: https://linuxchess.richardlloyd.org.uk/ It includes links to source code and Linux binaries where available. I've tested every engine listed - some need Wine to work though and a few don't work on Linux at all (I've ke...

Re: Linux chess engines ratings page

Apologies for missing that Komodo 12 had indeed been tested at 40/4. What's very surprising is that Komodo 12 actually shows a slight ELO drop compared to Komodo 11! In fact, 11.31 dropped compared to 11.2 as well - not great if you're trying to get people to upgrade :-( It also explains why I misse...

Re: Linux chess engines ratings page

Everything in the list with "Native" or "Wine" in the Linux? column will run on Linux. You may need a recent distro and the very latest Wine though for some of the binaries. You may need to compile source code in some cases too where the binary isn't supplied - again, some source may need a fairly r...

Re: Linux chess engines ratings page

I'd seen the Chess Engines List before and really should have gone to visit that again to look for engines like Spark. I've now updated my list to include Spark's home page/download and that it works natively on Linux. I'd only been testing engines from the command line and it looks like some engine...

Re: Linux chess engines ratings page

I've tried building and running Senpai 2.0 on both CentOS 7 and Fedora 29 (they have different g++ and clang++ compiler versions) both with g++ and clang++, plus tried "ucinewgame" before "go inifinite" - all attempts ended up with a segmentation violation and core dump. Now I know someone's got it ...

Linux chess engines ratings page

Windows chess engines tend to hog the glory (most commercial engines are Windows-only and many tournaments are run only on Windows machines), so to redress the balance for Linux users, I've taken the top 50 or so CCRL 40/4 engines (cutoff point, for fun, is those stronger than Carlsen's human blitz ...
