Description Miloslav Trmac 2002-09-22 18:01:16 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'xboard'
2. wait

Actual Results:
window (chess pieces, menu) is unresponsive

Expected Results:
xboard allows me to play chess

Additional Information:
Apparently the gnuchess package has changed (there is no gnuchessx any more,
etc...) and the right way to run gnuchess is 'gnuchess xboard'. Workaround:
       xboard -fcp 'gnuchess xboard'
Comment 1 Miloslav Trmac 2002-10-05 20:01:41 EDT
Same in 8.0

cat 'XBoard*firstChessProgram: gnuchess xboard
XBoard*secondChessProgram: gnuchess xboard' >> ~/.Xresources
