    Chess


    I am posting this for the benefit of anyone out there looking for a chess program.

    I recently switched from SuSE 9.1 to Mandrake 10.0

    SuSE had knights installed, which is a chess game. I liked it, so I sought it out to install it on Mandrake.

    These are the steps I performed to accomplish this.

    1. I went to: http://knights-chess.com/
    2. I downloaded the rpm under Red Hat 9.0
    3. I installed the rpm
    4. I googled for phalanx (you need this); it is located at:
    http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat...es_Board_Chess
    5. I download the rpm for SuSE 9.x
    6. I installed the rpm
    7. I went to "run command" and typed in "knights"

    At this point knights should detect phalanx, but if doesn't, you can manually tell the program where to find it. Go to: settings - configure knights - computer opponents.

    I hope this has been of help to someone out there.
