Hi Lukas,

Have you tried creating a smaller database?

If I remember correctly, there is a problem with large databases, because some 32 bit register is too small and causes a crash.

There'll be a post in the archives from when I tried it, many years ago.

I tried to create a large two-sided bearoff database with:

$ makebearoff -t 6x15 -f gnubg_ts.bd

The program told me that the "total number of positions" is
-1350385600, which seemed dubious to me, but I didn't abort it.

After a couple of hours the program finished and I ended up with a file
that's basically empty:

$ cat gnubg_ts_test.bd

From what I read the file is supposed to be ~22GB big.

What might have gone wrong?  I had about 60GB of free space, which I
guess should be enough.

Best wishes
