Compiling

Please make sure to download the software first. More details are contained on the getting page. All instructions below were tested on Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and 10.4 (Tiger)

Mac OS X Chess:

It has been developed with XCode 1.0. I managed to download it, open it and compile it with XCode 1.1 without any trouble.

Xboard:

As of Xboard 4.2.7 it compiles directly from the download package with the following instructions. No needs anymore to download updated configure scripts.

./configure
make

eboard:

Detailed instructions to be included.

Console applications:

Compiling and running your application is most often possible by running the following scripts.

./configure
make
./yourapp

Chess-Rikus:

Detailed instructions to be included.

Crafty:

cd crafty-19.13
make
./crafty

GNUChess:

Detailed instructions to be included.

Pepito:

Edit the makefile.gcc and add following line.
CPP = g++

Then change in the following line the $(CC) flag in $(CPP)
pepitox: $(OBJECTS)
    $(CPP) $(CFLAGS) -o pepitox $(OBJECTS)

Then compile and execute.

cd pepisrc
make -f makefile.gcc
./pepitox

Phalanx:

Edit the phalanx.c file because it has syntax errors. You will notice the errors on the first make. After correction, compile it.

cd Phalanx-XXII
make
./phalanx

Belofte:

Compiles straight out of the box.

cd belofte/project
./compile.sh
