[GRASS-dev] GRASS 6.4 not displaying maps

I compiled GRASS 6.4 rb a few days ago. I did basic tests, including displaying raster and vector maps, before posting it. I just now downloaded it to my laptop and it will not display a map. Here is the error.

Command 'd.rast -o map=elevation at PERMANENT' failed
Details: No socket to connect to for monitor <x0>.

The laptop is an older machine (ca. 2009 or 2010) but both it and the one I compiled it on are running the most recent version of Mac OS X (Yosemite, 10.10) and are pretty much identical in other respects.

Can you test this build to see if it runs for you? I did a restart and disk fix and still it won’t work.

GRASS 7.1 displays fine but SQLite seems broken (as you mentioned). Here is the error when I try to open a table:
