    Post Please guide me to install 3D chess game (e.g. DreamChess) or any other good one for Suse

    I remember playing DreamChess on Ubuntu, but the one is not available for Suse 11.4 KDE.
    Can you please suggest a 3D version of Chess for OpenSuse 11.4 KDE.
    I have tried installing various chess programs through Yast, but they do not appear installed in the "games" section of "applications".
    Please guide.
    Thanks in advance.

    I've noticed this package isn't on the regular openSUSE repositories, as such, I've built it and will submit it to the games repository.

    You can download the package from one of the links (openSUSE 11.4) to my OBS (openSUSE Build Service) home repository:

    * 32bit (i586) package for openSUSE 11.4
    * 64bit (x86_64) package for openSUSE 11.4

    * The package project page on OBS can be seen here: link

    Install the application with the command (as root)
    Code:
     zypper in ~/Downloads/dreamchess-0.2.0-1.x86_64.rpm

    I've submitted it to the games repository on OBS, so it's a question of days until it gets accepted! Enjoy the game.

    It has been accepted on the games repository. So if you want to install the games repository that can be accomplished with the following commands as root (for openSUSE 11.4):

    * Add the repository:
    Code:
     zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/games/openSUSE_11.4/games.repo
    * Refresh the repository and install the game:
    Code:
     zypper ref && zypper in dreamchess
    At the current time the packages are still building, within 10/15 minutes it should be available from the games repo as well

    We are very fortunate in openSUSE that one of the Packman packagers has packaged MANY chess games for openSUSE. In order to install those chess games, you need to add the Packman packager repository to openSUSE Software Manager. If you do not know how to do that please POST and advice. Adding Packman repository for software is VERY important, not only for chess but for many different multimedia and other packagers. It is the LARGEST repository of 3rd party packaged software for openSUSE.

    There used to be a Chess wiki, where a lot of this information was kept. But the wiki changed format, and the chess wiki was moved to a hard to reach 'holding' area. Some day I hope to create a new chess wiki, but for the time being I have a copy of the old wiki located as a directory in my user name in the opensuse web site.

    None of these in the wiki I refer to are 'Dream Chess' nor 'Brutal Chess' (the chess games in the wiki I note have much stronger algorithms and play a much better game of chess than 'Dream Chess' and 'Brutal Chess').

    Please take a look here:
    User : Oldcpu/chess - openSUSE

    It refers to over a dozen different chess games, some of which play very strong chess.

    I had tried installing many of these chess programs, but none of those were 3D and even though Yast showed them to be installed, they were not visible in the "Games" section of "Applications". The Packman repository is already installed in my computer.
    But I would love to experiment with new chess programs too, if you can guide me in the same process.
    Thanks once again.
