Re: Pi Zero compiling XBoard

It could be timeseal - I downloaded a version, but I'm not sure if it's the right one - there were multiple linux versions on the page I found and tbh I wasn't sure which should work.

Do you have a version for download that would work ?

Thanks again for the help.

Re: New 1 GHz Raspberry PI Zero for US$5

Amazing little device, been playing with it and the pi 2 a lot recently. The pi 2 is collecting weather & motion data (that's what everyone does, right ? :)) I compiled Xboard and my engine on the pi zero with no issues, and if FICS give me an account (fingers crossed), I'll put my engine on the ser...

Ok, I will thanks :)
