#317 closed defect (fixed)

WinGRASS MSYS Console doesn't run correctly

Reported by: gislab Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Default Version: 6.3.0
Keywords: msys console, wingrass Cc:
CPU: x86-32 Platform: MSWindows XP

Description (last modified by neteler)

1. Install GRASS in C:\GRASS
2. Check C:\GRASS\msys\home\, in this folder C\Documents and
Settings\MYNAME is created during install, where grass63 is sitting.
3. Run Start\Programs\GRASS\GRASS MSYS Console
4. Check C:\Gis\GRASS\msys\home\ again, now in this folder MYNAME
(lowercase) folder is created, without grass63 file in it.

Needless to say, that even if I move grass63 from the folder made right after install

"C:\GRASS\msys\home\C\Documents and Settings\MYNAME"
to the one created on first run of MSYS
"C:\GRASS\msys\home\MYNAME"

GRASS GUI starts with error messages, grass63 -text doesn't start at all, producing "Redirection is not supported" message.

Removing .grassrc6 from C:\GRASS\msys\home\C\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\ and .grassrc6 from C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\ doesn't help.

The problem was replicated on at least 4 more machines by other people under the same operating system and grass version. http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/grass-windows/2008-September/001502.html

Recent GRASS 6.4 should no longer have (much?) problems with white space in the install path. Please retry with a new winGRASS version from http://josef.fsv.cvut.cz/wingrass/grass64/

still valid for nightly builds of WinGrass64?
