Dear GRASS-Programmers and GRASS-Users,
I just returned from a trip through GB and read the mails
about GRASS/XGRASS, here some summaries:
1) XGRASS (the menue) does not run properly on LINUX due to
incompatibilities of flex used by linux and the standard lex.
2) XDIGIT (I know it from IRIS INDIGO runnig, GREAT) does not run using
X11R5 and MOTIF >= 1.2 due to incompatibilities of MOTIF >= 1.2
and MOTIF < 1.2. The use of the backward-compatibilitie switch
of MOTIF does not change anything!
If You want to see XDIGIT running, comment out the make_colors_menu
call, and xdigit will start up properly, but You will have the
problem with a white background, each time You redraw the graphics
window, and severe problems with hanging menus.
There had been some mail traffic regarding this problems last
Year and in the beginning of 1994, but I heard of no real solution
3) Missing include files during compiling the libraries X...,
look at my porting report to LINUX wich I posted last year.
I hope posting some useful informations
