#1521 closed defect (wontfix)

grass crashed on Fedora 14

Reported by: kbriggs Owned by: martinl
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.4.2
Component: wxGUI Version: 6.3.0
Keywords: Cc: grass-dev@…
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Linux


I did a "yum install grass" on my Fedora 14 linux system. It all appeared to install successfully. However, when I start it I get the screen as in the screenshot, in which the two panels "Project Location" and "Accesible mapsets" are empty and do not respond. Clicking on "Enter GRASS session" gives this crash:

Starting GRASS ... Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/lib/grass-6.3.0/etc/wxpython/", line 638, in OnStart

"set=LOCATION_NAME=%s" % self.listOfLocations[self.lblocations.GetSelection()]])

IndexError: list index out of range

Also, the opening window is too high for my screen and cannot be resized.

GRASS 6.3.0 is really old. Try more recent version, at least 6.4.2RC2.

So why is this version supplied as the official Fedora package?

Replying to kbriggs:

So why is this version supplied as the official Fedora package?

well, ask package maintainer in Fedora... GRASS 6.3.0 is just technical preview, not release, moreover published more then 3 years ago (23 Apr 2008).

Note that also GRASS 6.4.0 is available for Fedora 14:

Please check in your software manager to grab this more recent GRASS 6.4 version. Later Fedora distros offer also 6.4.1 (and 6.4.2 once it is released).
