Re: scid: Location of X11 library: not found

Hi guys,

As I can't figure out how to lock my personal compiled scid, and that
suggestion from Chris to use crafty was a good workaround except for
the fact the cpu heat, I decided to tune crafty (using ".craftyrc"
file) and enable egtb, and set its search deep to only 1 level. That
way the engine barely warm.

Now I can update all my packages, and there is no more broken scid-data.

Of course, I would prefer native tablebase from scid as before.

One suggestion, to avoid duplicated scid (free and non-free) on the
FTP sites, is to have the menu option in the free scid to display a
message suggesting the user to install another little package from
non-free with only the piece of code missing. If one doesn't want to
install, thats ok, scid will keep free. And if installed, it will be
only a little package, not the whole scid.

I hope this suggestion find some ears in the scid developer team.
