You could try to replace -O3 by -O2 in the build script, and if that doesn't work, remove -flto.

Re: Big discrepancy between Men's and Women's Prize

From Wikipedia: "Hou Yifan was one of 24 players selected to play in the FIDE Grand Prix 2017, a qualification stage for the World Chess Championship 2018. She reached position 17 in the final standings, and thus was not able to qualify for the Championship." There is STILL no "Men's World Chess Cha...

Re: Big discrepancy between Men's and Women's Prize

GM Hou Yifan unlike many top players who dedicate every waking moment to improving their game, from an early age GM Hou decided chess would be a hobby and not a career. So? If you want to become world chess champion, then you have to do the work required. If people are not willing to do that work, ...

Wrong again Judith Polgal did participated, but never qualified to be the finalist
That has nothing to do with her being a woman, but that she didn't make good enough moves. See, I never qualified as finalist either.

Re: Big discrepancy between Men's and Women's Prize

Chess there is a Men World Chess Championship Nope. Judith Polgar could freely participate in "men" tournaments. The whole women chess championship is only because other female players are so weak that they want their own pseudo championship where men are disallowed. Want the same prize as men? Mak...

but not as it is 25% of the men World Championship Prize
Wrong. There is no "Men World Championship". There is only THE World Championship. Every woman is free to participate provided that she makes strong enough moves.

Re: Which OS is better for chess? Windows or Linux.

And how would you rate your experience ? Would you say that GDB from command line is easy to use ? Well I needed to google how segfault GDB , that got me a nice tutorial website right at the first result link. After that, it was pretty straightforward even in a slightly complicated issue.

Re: Which OS is better for chess? Windows or Linux.

Actually debugging is the #1 reason why I use IDEs, I can inspect the contents of variables when I get a crash, this is invaluable and difficult to do with printfs. I've used GDB from command line when I had to hunt down a non-obvious occasional segfault in my engine, so that doesn't require an IDE.
