Xiphos bug on linux ?

Post by NaltaP312 » Mon Aug 20, 2018 7:20 pm

Hi,
I don't arrive to contact the Xiphos author and i have no respon from the private message.

it seems there is a bug under linux (archlinux) with the last xiphos version.

the command uci go (file uci.c)
start with this line
pthread_join(main_search_thread, NULL);
and then there is a core dump. I think it tried to join a thread not initialized.

without this line, all is fine.

I don't know under windows.

Regards
