    Chess Software over LAN?

    Do any of you know of any software I could use to replace one chess set and clock for 2 players over a LAN? I would like to use something like this in my chess club running KNOPPIX.

    TIA,

    Re: Chess Software over LAN?

    ' apt-cache search chess |sort ' came up with a few things you could look into:

    gnuchess
    xboard
    3dchess
    crafty

    --I dunno about the clock tho, might have to do that one manually.

    Its looking to compile the Qt libraries. How do i include these on the compile line?

    I have a c++ class that uses the X11 graphics libraries and my compile line is something like:

    g++ -o myprog myprog.cc ccc_x11.cpp ccc_shap.cpp -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11

    Do I need something like -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 for the Qt libs?

    The code looked like C, so I tried:

    gcc -o chess chess.cc

    and got tons of errors.

    Then I tried g++ like this:

    g++ -o chess chess.cc

    and it can't find all the Qt #include lines!

    How do i fix this?

    TIA,

    usually you would cd to the source directory and use:

    make

    I went to the webpage and there is a statically linked binary there, have you tried that, with all of the qt version problems that is what I'd try.

    I tried make and got no where!

    Let me look at the static lib.

    Thanx,

    OK, I looked at the static and dynamic libraries. I must be dense, but what exactly can I do with these???

    Ok, I tried the following compile line:

    g++ -o chess chess.cc -I/usr/include/qt

    Now I get the Qt libraries, but still no compile!

    Yes, I have seen glChess, but you can't play over a network. The problem is I can't find ANY chess program where I can play an opponent over a LAN in real time with a chess clock! rgXnetchess, based on xboard, is supposed to do exactly that.

    Thanx anyway!

    Regards,
