Ok, try this once your browser is working
http://metaeducation.s3.amazonaws.com/index.html?do=chess
and type
chiu-vs-jensen
forget about the "ss" which is a typo
a game of mine from over 40 years ago which I found on the net

Here's a little homage experiment
What happens is that the JS looks for a file startup-sequence.reb and if it finds it executes it.  This gives a table of downloads to renc binaries. Click on a link and it gives you the url to the latest binary for that OS tuple.

move the board out of the way, and then you can start typing chess moves
eg.  e2 e4 e7 e5 g1 f3 etc
Have yet to implement castling, en passant and pawn promotion
so the console has a hook that allows me to parse out chess moves and instead of sending them to the interpreter moves the pieces instead

sweet chess game

Just got to play with the demo. Super neat!

Now has pawn promotion, castling and en passant in my Rebol Javascript Wasm chess interpreter

I was installing R3 on a headless Armbian SBC called SOPine A64 Compute Module, and the standard steps didn't work. This is what I needed to do to get it to work:
dpkg --add-architecture armhf
apt update
apt install libc6:armhf libncurses5:armhf libstdc++6:armhf
apt install libxrandr2:armhf libfontconfig1:armhf
#not sure if the following line is needed
apt install libx11-6:armhf libxaw7:armhf libfreetype6:armhf
reboot
Bo
It turns out that all the above lines are needed.
