If gmchess does not start from your application menu, open a terminal and type: gmchess

If you get a segmentation fault, try installing gmchess-bin which is the same game but installed from pre-compiled Ubuntu binaries.

Okay it is also crashing for me... It looks weird. Will dig into it later.

Thanks hosiet, I've updated the source to your repository and now it compiles again.

Unfortunately, starting gmchess seems to segfault (at least on my machine). Any ideas?

Just FYI, I made some improvements to the source code and the project is available here:

https://salsa.debian.org/chinese-team/gmchess

Although gmchess is no longer maintained in Debian, I think this repo will be kept and available for you to use.

I apologize to all who have wanted this package updated. Due to life circumstances I no longer have the time or desire to keep this package maintained. Hosiet your orphan request was justified. Thank you all

Hello all, this is the maintainer of package gmchess in Debian.

This package in AUR is broken for ages and it might be better if we fix it soon.

japernilater, are you going to fix it recently? If not, I'm considering submitting orphaning request within 2 weeks.

Thanks, Boyuan Yang

@tklee Agreed. I also got a 404. Editing PKGBUILD...

Can we update the source URL to https://storage.googleapis.com/google-code-archive-downloads/v2/code.google.com/gmchess/gmchess-0.29.6.tar.bz2 ?

japernilater commented on 2015-02-04 04:13

I'm thinking that something has changed in the makepkg script not alowing it to packaged from the PKGBUILD I had submitted. It used to work just fine. I have modified the PKGBUILD to that it now builds correctly. Also, I have moved the location of the .png file for the icon so the game can be seen properly in the menu of the desktop environment. If there is any problems please let me know. Thank you
