d.mon X Error | From: "GHATCHER" <cerl!omdc.gso.uri.edu!GERRY> | I have just upgraded my DECstation 5000/200 from ULTRIX4.2 to ULTRIX4.2a and | in the process I had to tar my grass system and then untar after the upgrade. | After the upgrade I can't get d.mon to start an X window. I don't think its | a problem with the ULTRIX upgrade but rather the tar and untar of the grass | software (permissions or something). I believe this to be the case because | none of my other X-window applications are acting differently, and d.mon had | permission problems from the start.

On my system (SunOS) tar doesn't handle pipes properly.  You may just need to
recreate your pipe files in grass's dev directory with the mknod command:
        mknod fifo.0a p
        mknod fifo.0b p
        mknod fifo.1a p
        mknod fifo.1b p
        mknod fifo.2a p
        mknod fifo.2b p
	chmod 666 fifo.*
