> has anyone compiled gnubg on a 64-bit linux system?

I don't know of anyone. But there should not be a problem doing it. How
much 64-bit will gain over a 32-bit is uncertain, but I guess it won't be

Linux users are usually so bright that they can compile their own gnubg. I
also see that you're educated in chemistry which indicate that you have
something smart inside your head.

I suggest you try to compile it your self. We're more than willing to help
you if any problem occurs.

The starting point should be to get the source:

Open a terminal window (as a user) and type:
export CVS_RSH=ssh
cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvsroot/gnubg co gnubg

This will get the latest sources for you. Jump down to the gnubg directory
that cvs just got you, and do the automake/autoconf stuff.

cd gnubg
aclocal -I m4
automake --add-missing

If that worked you should be able to run configure now. Some systems have
problems with the 3d board, so you might want to configure without 3d board
support. I also usually exclude guile support and gdbm support since these
features is totally redundant in my view. And sounds doesn't have any thing
to do in an analyzing tool. (Have you seen a molecule simulation tool with
sound effects?) Therefore:

./configure --without-guile --without-gdbm --without-board3d

Ok... if that worked try to build it:


(if it complains about missing weights, you can try the file attached with
this mail)

(See attached file: gnubg.weights.gz)

Does it link? Does it start?

If things seems to work, mail me a little line and I'll give you the next
tricks. If this step-by-step guide does not work, just tell us, and we will
hopefully be able to help you.

Good luck,
