Go board game : an application for 64bit module center

Post#1 by francois » 02 Jan 2011, 04:58

Go is as board game, invented by chineese 2500 years ago. The material is simple white and black stones that you place you and your opponent alternatively at the intersection of a grided board (see the picture of a go board in the following link).
Go (board game

When one of the opponent is recognized as superior, he will yield handicap to the other player.

The goal of the game is to circle your opponents stones before he strenghtens his position sufficiently in a way that you will not be able to capture him. A invulnerable position is one were the player has a string of stones which has a minimum of two eyes. The winner is the one who will have seized a superior number intersects on the board, to which will be added the opponents captured stones (see the go game and its rule):

New to the slax module center, I would like to build a module for kdegames thru kdegames ver 4.4.3-i486-1. the source http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slackw ... ware-13.1/

I have already tried thru gslapt with no result:
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=vi ... ntID=72281

Under the slax module center, trying to follow the instructions under package manager trying to click on the left pane (and not on the right pane where there is nothing) I loose the module center altogether. Detailed instructions would be much appreciated.

1) I would like to be proficient to build modules with Slax module center
2) To try Slax module center, I would like to work a kdegames version that include the kigo game, the chineese board game of go.
3) I have tried to install kde games with slapt-get. The package is installed on my remix09, however the games will not load. I see the small icon bouncing but it finally does not load. I wonder if using the Slax module center wouldn't work any better. I know that kigo works under kde 4 in ubuntu. Could it be the reason it does not work in remix?
4) I do not mind working with Slax module center to build any other module.
5) Notheless, I would like to be able to get the Kigo game working on my box whatever the method.
Carpe diem.

kdegames ver 4.4.3 needs qt4 and probably half of whole KDE-4 desktop. I would give up with this in 32bit version.
'Slax module center' has some bugs, bases on rather messy lzm repo and seems that is not maintained anymore - i would drop it in v1.0, but it's up to Jay.

With porteus v1.0 and KDE 4.x coming soon a lot of possibilities will be available.

This resolves the issue brought up in this thread. In fact, I am presently using Kigo on Porteus-v1.0-rc1-x86_64.

In fact, so to get them into the necessary xzm modules, I have downloaded kdegames:
http://193.190.67.15/mirror/ftp.slackwa ... 6_64-1.txz

and build gnugo 3.8 from the source code:
http://vieka.com/gnugo/doc/gnugodoc.htm
http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/gnu/

Gnugo is needed as a frontend for Kigo to be working. For some reason, it was not included in kdegames-4.4.3-x86_64-1.txz. It will be installed by the script in /usr/local/bin.

Once gnugo installed in the /usr/local/bin, start kigo of kde games.

KIgo works like a charm (in fact better than in kubuntu). And in addition you get the wide array of games provided by KDE games, in cluding a few favorite of mine, kmahjongg and KsirK (inspired by the wellknown risk game).
Carpe diem.

I have given a short definition of the Go game in the first post. :)
