These unexciting but essential components include the GNU assembler, GAS and the linker, GLD, both are now part of the GNU Binutils package, GNU tar, and more.

 Diary for khazad
GNU Chess support was already planned for eboard, but someone concerned with crafty's non-freeness got me adding support for it earlier than I expected.
Well, GNU Chess (in fact, any engine that talks the xboard protocol version 2) support is added to eboard, the changes are already on CVS.
Better than getting a chess engine to win out every GM in the world, a chess engine programmer's challenge should be building efficient/"smart" search algorithms - searching the good positions and discarding fast the bad ones.

However, there's actually no free/GPL Chess game for PalmOS, like for other platforms; for instance, the famous GNU chess, which has been ported on a lot of different platforms, did not exist yet on PalmOS.

 Playing GNU Chess with XBoard on a Mac
Disappointed by the number of Chess programs for the Mac, I decided to delve into the land of text commands and the much touted UNIX core of OS X (Jaguar 10.2).
This was probably the easier of the two programs to compile and get to work; XBoard was a bit more tricky, but by some good documentation by its author, I played my first game tonight against GNU Chess (not a great game on my part).
Honestly, as long as you follow the documentation for compiling GNU Chess, you are good to go.
