The following command starts GNU Chess in engine mode using the xboard protocol, but it will not start the XBoard program itself (the graphical user interface):

gnuchess --xboard

If you want to start XBoard and make it use GNU Chess as chess engine, you have to run this command:

xboard -fcp 'gnuchess --xboard'

The manual of GNU Chess explains it:

We recommend to use the last version of GNU Chess: 6.0.1. Anyway, v5,07 should work fine with XBoard.

Could you please indicate the exact command that you are using to start XBoard with GNU Chess as chess engine? Could you also indicate the exact version of XBoard?

Thanks for reporting.

But when I give the option to play using xboard invoking it with "gnuchess -x" or "gnuchess --xboard" it just appears: "Chess Adjusting HashSize to 1024 slots" and a blinking prompt... my Xboard is also perfectly setted, I can use it to play with FairyMax or connecting to FICS and have a game, I looked all over GNU help and FAQS and nothing. I would appreciate some help here if possible....
