Hey again!
Great job with the GNU Guix System 1.2.0. Really nice!

What do you mean by “not working”? I’ve tried:
guix environment --ad-hoc xboard -- xboard
and it spawns what looks like a “working” XBoard to me (that’s withcommit 3d85c3ec652feb22824f355538b51e6955ded361 as reported by ‘guixdescribe’).
Thanks in advance,Ludo’.

Even if the Data Service says that no substitute are available:
https://data.guix.gnu.org/repository/1/branch/master/package/xboard/output-history
all these commits f4450e8c 27866b7c af1225a3 b5ed51bd 48cccf06 8ab70bae9bc516ba 35c43fcd c81457a5 aebba13c 747953c4 e7ce4ef9 4730878b 6d15516d0ed75a5f 33b59c1a build, i.e., all the xboard 4.9.1 are buildable.
However, then trying I get:
Toggle snippet (3 lines)xboard: Erreur lors de l'écriture dans le programme d'échecs Premier: Relais brisé (pipe)
and a crash. I do not know if it comes from an user config of xboard (Inever use it) or a Guix config of the package or something brokenupstream.
Pablo, could you precise what you mean by “not working for so long”?And what do you mean by “wait until update”? What “update” means here?

All the best,simon

On my system, starting XBoard with the "xboard" command and trying touse the gnuchess engine fails with a "broken pipe" error. According tothe engine menu in XBoard, it uses the "-fcp gnuchess" to set gnuchessas the engine.
What is strange is that if I start XBoard directly with "xboard -fcp gnuchess",everything works fine.

How do you start xboard? Simply typing in the command line “xboard” ortyping “xboard -fcp gnuchess”?

Before what?
BTW, I have the same feedback as Guillaume:
