What do you mean?

I works for me. I explained how to make it work above.

We already discussed this. This is a path issue. To run Rybka3Linux you need to

(1) specify the full path /usr/games/Rybka3Linux (because apparently /usr/games is not in your path on your system)

(2) Increase the maximum allowed shared memory allocation.

As said above everything is discussed here
http://rybkachess.com/index.php?auswahl=Linux

In particular I repeat the quote from that link which I also already gave above

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.

Edited by sudo gedit / etc / sysctl.conf
put line kernel.shmmax = 268443648
But Predn not work as after
xboard -fcp Rybka3Linux -fUCI
xboard -fcp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux -fUCI

Sorry I now notice the quote did not specify the whole story. After making changes to sysctl.conf you have issue
the following command (assuming this is a recent version of ubuntu).

Code: Select all
sudo invoke-rc.d procps start


This will read in the file sysctl.conf and set the appropriate kernel parameters.

I think you can also just reboot.

To see that the setting worked you can do

Code: Select all
cat /proc/sys/kernel/shmmax


This should give the value you specified (268443648) which I assume amounts to 268Mb.

Well, you change directory to /usr/games, and then run ./Rybka3Linux. That does not prove that /usr/games is in your path. What happen if you do not type ./Rybka3Linux but just Rybka3Linux, and what happens when you type that after changing to another directory (say " cd /")?

[edit] I read back a little further in this thread. If the problem is that the default setting of 64MB hash is too large for Rybka, just start up XBoard with a parameter specifying a smaller amount of default hash:

xboard -fcp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux -fUCI -defaultHashSize 16

Respected H.G.Muller at last has earned by means of a command xboard-fcp/usr/games/Rybka3Linux-fUCI-defaultHashSize to 16 huge you thanks! :D I am sorry for my questions I the beginner in xboard, as well as in Linux also извените for my English. At me one more question by means of what in xboard it is possible to start tournament of engines? :?:

XBoard does not have a built-in tournament manager; the most it can do is a match of a number of games between two opponents. To play a tournament, I always use an external tournament manager (PSWBTM). I don't know how well this work under Linux, though; I run all my tournaments under Windows with WinBoard.

With PSWBTM you can build an engine database, and select engines from it to quickly set up a tournament. It then starts up XBoard for each game of the tournament that has to be played.

xboard -fcp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux -fUCI -defaultHashSize 16


Of course that works but it doesn't help if you want to use Rybka with a reasonable amount of hash. There is a simple
permanent solution which makes Rybka run with any hash size you want. I was trying to explain this.

To use large volumes of memory recommends that you read the text of the truth in Russian

Sorry don't read Russian :-(

But I assume that text explains that it is possible. Which is good :D

Michel to you too many thanks and my thanks forgive for delay :D I can already start R3L with a size hesh 1024 and on available for me 2 cpu It is necessary to learn still as to hold tournaments in xboard 8-)

xboard -fcp fruit -fUCI -scp fairymax -mg 8

should play a match of 8 games between fruit and fairymax, with alternating colors. (-mg is shorthand for -matchGames.)

xboard -fcp toga -fUCI -scp fruit -sUCI -mg 8

The order of the options is actually not very important in XBoard; you might as well have said

xboard -mg 8 -scp fruit -fcp toga -fUCI -sUCI

and it wold do exactly the same. (Of course the value of an option has to immediately follow the option name, but otherwise the order is immaterial, unless you mention the same option twice.)

Oh, I guess /usr/games is still not in your PATH. It ays "no such file or directory", so it could not find it. So you would have to write

xboard -fcp fruit -fUCI -scp /usr/games/Rybka3Linux -sUCI -mg 8
