    Hi there... After many failed attempts and tutorials, I finally managed to get Wine up and working on Centos7. Now my Chess software is up and running for my greatest satisfaction (I know, not a big deal, but I like it).

    I essentially followed the instructions found on this site:
    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20971960/the-right-way-to-install-wine-on-centos-6-64bit

    I personally left out the make.log parts of the instructions. I also downloaded the 1.9.20 version of wine from https://dl.winehq.org/wine/source/1.9/ before starting.

    Please report here if you failed in the past at installing Wine on CentOS and are getting it done by now.

    Cheers

    Well... :) Does this mean Wine on CentOS is not often needed by Wilders's CentOS users, or that CentOS isn't that popular among Linux users? Anyone else using CentOS around here beside Dedoimedo and myself?

    I do think it's very common among Linux users, specially server admins. However, I think the key here is Wine itself :)

    While I do think it's great that you managed to get Wine running on CentOS, I personally haven't used it in (at least) 4 years or so :p I did see this thread and thought "hey, great man!" but that was it hehehehe.

    Mainly Arena for analysis and LucasChess for tournaments.

    Open-source engines are pretty strong --see for instance Stockfish-- but, surprisingly, Chess GUI's are amazingly poor or even non-existent on Linux.

    I'm using it on a web server at work, and that only because it was the only version of Linux I could find that would work with the graphics card in the server. In general, it would not be my first choice, or even my second. If I were looking for something to play chess on, it would be Ubuntu or Mint or something similar.

    Hi, gnome-chess is sufficient for sheer play pleasure, but is totally lacking in any serious feature such as: capacity to analyse a single game or a series of games to point at weak moves for both or either one of colours and suggest rated better moves at each turn; save games in a decent database; use endgame databases to accelerate endgame play/analysis by the engine; add other chess playing engines; order an engine to continue play against itself starting at any chosen move and see what happens as a result; add variations and annotations in game analysis output; coaching by an engine while playing against the computer; and so on.

    We now have a complete free Linux Chess playing/analysis software.

    Better late than never, and the result is amazing! Very nice!

    Of course Cent OS is the bomb. !!

    LOL, analyzing my Chess game might cause the software to run and hide in embarrassment.
    Nice to see Chess for Linux.

    Haven't needed WINE as yet, still have Winboxes up and accessible as req.
