Guys,

I keep having intereferences between Linux Go programs. Leela's bot fails to start (autogtp's fault, AFAIK) with impressive regularity (but not predictability) if I use Leelaz, to the point that it requires a session restart. Most certainly, thay refuse to be used together, even with different actual executables. Now, I tried yesterday to compile q5go and, while it failed, it seems to have messed my leelaz again (weirdly, it messes the autogtp one, not Lizzie's), to the point I'll probably have to recompile (not the first time it happens). And so on, and so forth.

Now, I'm considering simply using virtual machines and be done with it. Or, maybe some distribution somehow geared towards Go. I recall there used to be a "Hikaru" distribution (HikaruLinux? HikaLinux?). Is there anything similar these days? I do like allowing my computer to be used for Leelaz "growth", but I'm really fed-up with these kind of hassles.

Take care

Does this happen only when you run two or more instances? Perhaps they are using the same locations in memory and crashing due to this?

What are you using for graphics hardware and drivers?

Oh, if I try to use two instances at the same time, it's no-go, sure. What's more, if I try to use one from the same [x-]terminal window that one called the other, it's also no-go. Or even if the terminal I'm using is a child process of the other.

Graphics, a fanless nvidia 1030. Drivers, nvidia-driver-390 v390.116.0ubuntu0.18.04.1 Unless the menu is cheating on me (in the good ol' times of the Centauri Republic, 86 XFree slaves...!). The motherboard actually has embedded graphics, but a shelf fell on the cable and messed it up.

[Latern add-on:] One of the reasons for virtualization would be to have two instances at the same time. I don't actually use Lizzie that much, and stopping and restarting leelaz sometimes leads to a game reset. Since I run it to try and help its AI development a bit, throwing a game away is a waste. At the very least, having it run virtualized would help restarts.

Take care.
