Details

Description:

The crafty package community/crafty 23.2-1 (in my case for x86_64) installs an opening book that is too old for the installed program. Running crafty on its own gives:

$ crafty
unable to open book file [/usr/share/crafty/book.bin] for "write".
learning is disabled

ERROR! book.bin not made by version 23.0 or later

Crafty v23.2 (1 cpus)

White(1):

Version 23.0 does not appear to be backwards compatible with older books. New books can be created with the command:

$ crafty binfile create myfilename.pgn 60

However the creators site (ftp://ftp.cis.uab.edu/pub/hyatt/pgn/) only seems to have enormous books available.


Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.


Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

Sorry my info on creating a new book is bad:

This is how it's done (download a pgn openings file such as enormous.zip from ftp://ftp.cis.uab.edu/pub/hyatt/pgn/. Also download start.pgn and startc.pgn to the same directory. Extract enormous.zip):

$crafty
book create enormous.pgn 60
books create start.pgn 60
bookc create startc.pgn 60
quit
