Some people reported problems with cutechess and chessx because of different versions of qt.
% brew info qt qt: stable 6.0.2 (bottled), HEAD % brew info qt@5 qt@5: stable 5.15.2 (bottled) [keg-only]
The latter one is important. Check whether qt@5 is installed. Otherwise install it with:
brew install qt@5
Here are new binaries for the M1 (arm64) which should work now:
And a small cook book if you want to build these qt based applications for your own. First you have to set some paths for successfully compiling your software:
% ls -l /opt/homebrew/Cellar/qt@5 total 0 drwxr-xr-x 23 user admin 736 9 Mär 22:52 5.15.2 % export PATH=/opt/homebrew/Cellar/qt@5/5.15.2/bin:$PATH % export LDFLAGS=-L/opt/homebrew/Cellar/qt@5/5.15.2/lib % export CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/homebrew/Cellar/qt@5/5.15.2/include % export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/homebrew/Cellar/qt@5/5.15.2/lib/pkgconfig
Switch to your source of cutechess and do:
% cd ~/local/src/cutechess-1.2.0 % qmake % make % ls -l projects/gui/ ... drwxr-xr-x 3 user staff 96 17 Mär 10:31 Cute Chess.app ... % ls -l projects/cli/ ... -rwxr-xr-x 1 user staff 1200794 17 Mär 10:32 cutechess-cli ...
For chessx-1.5.6 it’s practically the same:
cd ~/local/src/chessx-1.5.6-lw/ % qmake % make % ls -l release/ drwxr-xr-x 3 user staff 96B 16 Mär 13:30 chessx.app
