Re: Linux flavors - opinions

Ubuntu definitely.

P.S. Reasoning? Ubuntu is the most responsive. Also Mark Shuttleworth of Canonical is a kick-butt dude. If you ever get a chance to hear him speak,
I strongly recommend.

Re: Severe windows 10 problems. What to do?

Exactly one of the many reasons why I abandoned Windows 10 as my system (without virtualization on top of it) back in 2008.

Many countries are switching away from Windows due to its hackability.

Re: bizarre behavior by Leela

All of that is fixed up and I have my sparring partner. It is much less fast to execute my chesspatzer play than my program Talish, but Leela provides an illusion that I am stronger than I am. Talish just slices me up tactically quickly. So I am happy with this outcome. Running on Apple Mac, AWS Ubu...

Re: bizarre behavior by Leela

This was rectified after placing Xboard on the box and linking it up. Now only normal good games. It was human error.

Isn't this bug already solved a long time ago?
You're probably right, it only seems to happen when I compile against older Win SDK (8.1 or earlier).
It also happens when I try to compile for WinXP, no idea if it's related.
This is running on an Apple Mac.

Does illegal moves.

Not good.

Re: front-end for lc0 on mac os x

Hi.

I've installed the Xboard dmg disk image and it is running.

What are the methods for setting it to run lc0?

I set the lc0 directory and executable and played e2e4 but leela/lc0 never plays a move as black.

There is some kind of setting I am missing in xboard?

front-end for lc0 on mac os x

Can anyone point me at a URL for a Mac OS X front-end chess-board handler to put in front of lc0?
