3D Chess Game Install Problem (Stupid Newbie Question)

Installed a 3D Chess Game. Ran it and the opening page gave me several choices written in geek-speak from another galaxy. <sigh> I think I left things as they were and hit Go.

The program closed immediately and now when I try and run it it just "blinks" quickly and returns me to the desktop. That's it.

I uninstalled it and re-installed it twice, even rebooted between the two efforts; nothing changed. Any ideas what might be wrong? (It's only a lousy chess game but I can't stand being outsmarted by a machine.)

Thanks.

What game exactly? And how did you install it- YUM, source, etc? And what decisions did you make at the opening page?

It was calle simply, 3D chess Game. It was in the list of available applications when I run the Add/Remove Program. (Did I leave that out before??) That's how Installed it. And again, I didn't make any selections. I left it as it was and none of the choices made any sense to me. Sorry if that's not much help but that's all there is to know.

I am wondering why an uninstall/reinstall didn't have any effect.

This program crashes on me too. Got it from "yum install chess"

Running it from terminal I see an error: "chess: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol: g_object_is_floating"

At first I thought maybe my videocard couldn't handle it. The discription on kyum is:

"Beautifull 3D rendered chess game using Ogre. Notice that this needs a powerful 3D card to be playable on a radeon 92xx or intel 9xx integrated graphics this is not playable!"

But now I'm thinking the rpm might be defective.
Anybody else have any idea what's going on here?

I can't replicate the problem either. Is their some common factor with the people who can get it to work versus those that can't?
