You need a Java Runtime Environment version 1.4 or later. Download it from java.sun.com. JREs from other vendors but Sun will probably not work.
Java 3D is optional. If it is available for your platform, download it from java.sun.com, or from www.blackdown.org.
Install it into the JRE directory.
Unless it is already installed on your system, download it from www.mysql.com. Version 4.0 is recommended, but 3.5 version should work, too. Do not use version 4.1.
Open the file <jose>/config/datasources.xml.
Look for the entry that has
<display-name> MySQL. (Usually, there is only one entry)
connection-param section, add the following text:
<connection-param> <param-name> mysqld </param-name> <param-value> /usr/bin/mysqld </param-value> </connection-param> <connection-param> <param-name> mysqladmin </param-name> <param-value> /usr/bin/mysqladmin </param-value> </connection-param>Replace the paths with the actual paths on your system (i.e. the MySQL installation path)
Crafty is a strong chess engine that is available for many UNIX platforms.
Download it from ftp://ftp.cis.uab.edu
Follow the build instructions.
Open the file <jose>/config/crafty.xml
EXEC section, add the following text:
<EXEC os="current"> <COMMAND> /usr/bin/crafty </COMMAND> </EXEC>
os="current" tells jose that the binary file is meant to run on the current platform.
The Mac OS X version is not yet tested very well.
