I downloaded the following Mahjongg cone fro Tucows. I attempted to install it but the operation said that I did not have the proper cc, which I assume is a C+ compiler.

Would an enterprising Puppy Linux user with these tools compile and make a Pup version of this game. If that is doable. thanks.

i've compiled xmahjongg but, instead of making as a dotpup, i've used makeself.sh script to make it as a self-extracting bzipped executable.

i've upx'ed it & kept only the gnome tileset, getting it down to 412kbytes.

it runs fine on my puter. my only question is where would i upload it to?

attach it to a personal message to me, and I will add it to dotpups.de
You also can attach programs up to 1 MB to a forum-message.

you're very quick mark. i'd never even noticed the "add attachment" button before!

here it is. i've bzipped it as when i sent to somebody unzipped it lost executable permissions. hopefully it still works!

didn't realise that makeself.sh has a "--nox11" option so that console window isn't created. have amended to include this.

cheers

i've done same thing for gsoko & it appears to work ok.

again i've added the --nox11 option to makeself.sh, so doesn't create console window.

following rarsa's post about using "strip -s", followed by upx, to reduce the size of a binary following make, i applied same to xmahjongg.

(see http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/viewtopic.php?t=3242&highlight=strip)

this gave a fourfold reduction in size so i've reposted the xmahjongg.tar.gz file.

i tried similar with gsoko binary but difference was neglible so kept the original file as is.

ah, muggins, you are over here now.

Thankyou for the dotpet. We are spoiled for choice now.
You are undoubtedly the king of games, and you have such an excellent filing system too.
Are you able to put your finger on a good CHESS game
that you could share with us?
If it is not a dotpet, that is ok, I can make one.

koolie,

I know that GuestToo has a .pup for gnuchess available on this page here:

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/DotPups

Note that this is a commandline chess engine, but that a gui frontend, eboard, is available on the same page.

I've got another frontend, linechec, here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=21623

Does anyone know of any others?

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=8449

Plus, look in this list for mahjongg variants reported as working with wine:

Tried this out in 2.15, opens up, click on a pawn & try to drag it to another position - poof.. game is gone..

Any dragging (mighty touchy) causes a crash. Figured out that you click on a piece & then click an appropriate location.

Tried the other frontend..can't figure out how to move a piece..Razz Dragging works but the piece returns to the original spot. Confused (using - gnuchess507.pup)

Yes Jonyo,

linechec is very frisky! Also, although I'm quite ignorant of the nuances of chess, my French is worse! So I could never work out how to set the gnuchess opponent as the default.

So, at the moment, when you start up, to manually play against gnuchess, you need to select from the menu:

Arreter Gnuchess.

And you need to wait awhile after your move, as gnuchess considers the next response.

As to using Eboard. I've never used it so I'm not sure. We'll have to put that one down as a stalemate.
