Chess can't load pgn file with many games
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
Description of problem:
Chess can't load this file: http://www.pgnmentor.com/players/Tal.zip when
unzipped to a single file, or other similar files from other locations.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://www.pgnmentor.com/players/Tal.zip
2. unzip ...
3. In Chess, file/open/ choose the file
"chess" can't open the file, it complains "unknown character '..' where the two
dots represent two characters I can't type on this keyboard.
Reportedly http://jorton.fedorapeople.org/eboard/ can open the game.
To be able to open the file and do something sensible, ideally choose & view
games and maintain some history of games seen.
I think you've picked the wrong component, which chess application are you using
exactly? (try help -> about)
glchess 2.20.1. It's listed as "chess" in the KDE menu.
Ah, thats part of gnome-games, changing components. Also I'm upstreaming this,
as I believe this bug is best handled upstream. The upstream bug report for this
