CPU: OSX/Intel Platform: MacOSX


Hi I just installed Grass 6.4 on my power book and I haven`t been able start GRASS. In the welcome window I have tried many times to create a new location but I continue to get this errors.

When I try to set location using EPSG reference code... I get: ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8

When I select the parameters form the list I get:

IndexError: list index out of range Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/Applications/", line 422, in OnWizard


ValueError: list.index(x): x not in list And nothing apperars on the Neather in Project location or the Accesible Mapsets

What can I do? Thanks Andres

Did you compile GRASS yourself or did you download binaries?

I downloaded the binaries

I was able to get through the whole location wizard, using EPSG codes. Though I had an existing GRASS database to create it in. My locale is set in the Terminal window preferences (Preferences-Settings-Advanced) as UTF-8 (the Terminal also sets LANG automatically, en_US.UTF-8 for me).

What do you get in a Terminal for:

echo "$LANG"

Some fixes to this have been applied. Can you please retry with ideally 6.4.svn?
