@donpicoro: Once again, could you please bump version number to force rebuild? Or maybe there is a better way to rebuild the package with the brand new tcl/tk. Rebuilding makes it work flawlessly, I tested that

Hi @donpicoro: Thanks for your answer. Yes, scid works after rebuilding it against new tcl/tk (guess it is my mistake, I'd recently started using pacaur and I did not notice that it doesn't really "rebuild" things when reinstalling). I think that you could simply bump version number to force "rebuild" throughout all AUR users. Thanks again.

The PKGBUILD uses the following line to get the tk version

pacman -Q tk | cut -f2 -d" " | cut -f1-2 -d"."

Granted, it should read tcl instead of tk... my bad. They typically have the same version number so it doesn't really matter.

I honestly do not understand what else shall I do "make this package work with current tcl/tk". I should automatically do it if you rebuild it yourself. I feel I am missing something here about exactly what you want.

donpicoro: It's great thing that you understand that you're doing a service to the community. Please continue to do so, lots of people, me included, benefit from your work. So, I do not need to convince you that making this package work with current tcl/tk is a good thing. If it's too much work then you may either try to read and learn or just feel free to drop a comment here, someone knowledgable in tcl will surely step in to help. Thanks again. Looking forward to having it updated.

Hej to all,
sorry for the delay. I was having some well-earned holidays. I do not have the crashes you present. Can you rebuild it again and check whether you still get the error?

@mrzeznicki: This is the AUR and more than anything, this is a community. Read, Learn and Contribute.

I experience the same bug as Antunes (scid crashes on engine quit). The bug is only present since the rebuild.

As a workaround, you can "quit" the engine with "killall gnuchess" (or whatever engine you use) to avoid the crash.

@Antunes: I was talking to our alleged maintainer to rebuild the damn thing so that it starts with new tcl/tk, it wasn't meant to solve your bug. Sorry for confusion

I have rebuilt my scid with the new tcl/tk libraries, but the crash I described earlier remains.

mrzeznicki commented on 2012-12-28 13:21

Please rebuild scid with new tcl/tk (/usr/bin/tkscid: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory). Thanks in advance.

With the current version, I get a crash when I

1) open scid
2) press F2 to start your Engine #1
3) press F2 to quit your Engine #1

I get a crash with output

Major opcode of failed request: 1 (X_CreateWindow)
Resource id in failed request: 0x1a087d2
Serial number of failed request: 315449
