UCI engines like Rybka play through the Polyglot adapter. That makes it a bit difficult to recognize what exactly is going on. The error message sais that Polyglot exited unexpectedly, but Polyglot is a pretty reliable program, so it probably did so for a good reason. Most likely because it could not find Rybka. (Could also be that it did not find the polyglot_1st.ini file.)

Best is to test step by step:
1) if you type "Rybka3Linux" from the command line, does Rybka start or do you get an error message?
If nothing happens, you should type "UCI" to see if Rybka responds.
2) If you pass that test, you sould check if polyglot_1st.ini is in the current directory, and try to print it by typing "cat polyglot_1st.ini".
3) If that works, you should try "polyglot ./polyglot_1st.ini". When that gives no error message (which means it is waiting for input) you should type:
Code: Select all
xboard
protover 2

and it should print a list of features.

With this configuration, polyglot expects to find Rybka3Linux in the same directory you ran from. IE, it can't find it because it is in /usr/games instead of the current directory.

Just modify the EngineDir polyglot option so it is correct. (/usr/games)

This should be considered a Polyglot bug, not? If "Rybka3Linux" is a valid command from the command line, (because /usr/games is in the PATH), then "EngineCommand = Rybka3Linux" should work, despite the fact that the "EngineDir = .". It should work no matter what the EngineDir is. Only when the EngineCommand would have been specified as "./Rybka3Linux" it would have had the right to complain. The EngineDir only tells what the current directory should be for the engine process (so that it looks for its book and config files there, or perhaps for making a log file). Not that the engine binary itself is in that directory (which would be very inconvenient in Linux).

Or is the problem that /usr/games is not in the PATH? What Polyglot version is bing used here? I can run Fruit or Glaurung in Linux by simply typing "xboard -fcp fruit -fUCI", and Fruit and Glaurung install in /usr/games as well.

I notice that the Rybka3Linux command was given while you were in the /usr/games directory. Does it also work from other directories?

A work-around could be to add the option "-fd /usr/games" to the xboard command line. Or specify the full path name, "-fcp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux".

I suspect it's a path problem.

Does

Code: Select all
polyglot -noini -ec Rybka3Linux


work?

I am not sure if this is related to the original problem, but you are using a rather obsolete version of Polyglot. This explains the second thing: it does not know the option -noini, and starts looking for a polylot.ini file anyway. I think this version of XBoard works best with Polyglot 1.4.46b.

Perhaps you should upgrade XBoard too: it seems you are using 4.4.0, and that indeed has the bug that the analysis window still pops up when it should not. The analysis output might appear in the Engine-Output window, which you have not open (it should have opened automatically, but the bug opens the analysis window in stead), so you can't see it. So first try to open the Engine-Output window, (in the Mode menu) to check if analysis is actually working, or that there is a real problem.

If upgrade you to XBoard 4.4.1, the Engine-Output window will pop up automatically when you select Analysis Mode. In a few days you will even be able to uprade to 4.4.2. 8-)

Has established version Xboard 4.4.1 and version Polyglot 1.4.50b But Rybka3Linux has not started
Code: Select all
xboard -fcp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux
though in the system monitor it was loaded.

In Xboard at me perfectly work Fruit, Spike, Toga, Stokfish, ZappaMexico2, DeepShredder11. But Rybka3Linux it does not work probably is connected with microwine?

Code: Select all
xboard -fcp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux

It seems you are leaving out the -fUCI. This would start Rybka as a WinBoard engine, and Rybka would wait forever for a uci command, while XBoard would wait for Rybka to do something.

What you should test is if

Code: Select all
polyglot -noini -ec /usr/games/Rybka3Linux


works from the command line in the folder where you want to give the xboard command. If that works, (i.e. when polyglot does not exit immediately, but you can type "xboard", "new", "post" and "go" and it will start to spit out Thinking Output) you could try if

Code: Select all
polyglot -noini -ec Rybka3Linux


also works. (To see if the problem is indeed the PATH.)

Ok one issue seems to be indeed the path. This means that

Code: Select all
xboard -fcp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux -fUCI


should work correctly.

If it doesn't then Rybka3Linux is probably the culprit (unless a polyglot bug is at play but
currently this seems unlikely as this same setup works with all other UCI engines).

Please report back.

EDIT: Did you report the literal output from polyglot? In my case I get

Code: Select all

:(

It seems we need to do further debugging. As polyglot does not print more information
on the error everything is ok as far as polyglot is concerned (unless it crashed). This could mean that the engine
quit (or crashed) and polyglot followed suit.

In the engine configuration window you can turn on polyglot logging. This will log
communication between the engine and polyglot. This should give an indication why
polyglot quit.

EDIT: I do not own Rybka 3 but I tried running Rybka 2 in microwine under polyglot under xboard.
I am observing the same behaviour as you. Rybka 2 starts up correctly
but then quits (or crashes)

I think I understand what causes the problem.

When you you set the hash size the resulting shared memory allocation may fail. So you should
reserve enough shared memory in advance

I wonder if there is a sensible way for Polyglot to detect a crashing engine. It must be
possible since the shell can do it (see the "Segmentation fault" message) (EDIT: yes it
is possible. It seems I should check the status argument of the wait system call).

Code: Select all
memory 680

Shared memory allocation of 536870960 bytes failed; the program will
probably crash very soon. (shmget: Invalid argument)

Usually, this is the sign of too little shared memory allocated
on the system. Try the following command as root and see if it
helps:

  echo 536879152 > /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

Segmentation fault

Actually it turns out that this is already documented. See here

http://rybkachess.com/index.php?auswahl=Linux

In particular the paragraph

One last trick

If you want to use more than 32 MB for the Hash tables, open gedit with root rights

sudo gedit

and add the line

kernel.shmmax = 268443648

to the file /etc/sysctl.conf.

Log a file to remove it will not turn out as R3l it is not loaded in xboard and naturally does not display parametres uci.Я started R3l through Shredder Classic 4 Linux but to work R3l there only with a size Hash 32 mb.Мне the problem in it will seems as in polyglot_1st.ini the size is automatically exposed Hash = 64

Yes of course it is impossible to open the engine configuration dialog since the engine crashes before that. Sorry for
this bad advice.

There are alternative ways to get a log but it is not necessary since I think the issue is solved. Just increase the maximum amount of shared memory as indicated in the above posts. Then there is no problem running 64 bit Rybka in xboard.

What is the command PolyGlot uses to start Rybka? In Windows,

cd Rybkadir
RybkaMultiCPU.exe

Crashes because Rybka needs argv[0] to be a path (even a relative path is okay).

In my case I use a script Rybka2Linux which contains

./microwine-wine-thunk "Rybka v2.2n2.mp.x64.exe"

The issue is that (I think) Rybka uses processes in its mp version. As a result the
hash memory has to be shared. Now apparently Linux imposes a maximum on the size argument
of shmget. This maximum has to be increased before Rybka can use more than 32Mb hash.
