I failed to mention a couple of things about the binary distribution of
GRASS 4.0 I uploaded yesterday. Here they follow:
1) the tar file has been packed with GNU tar. It can be untarred
with ISC tar (old and buggy) but the fifos in /dev will not be
extracted unless you use gnutar.
2) the shell script grass4.0 has been slightly hacked to get it
working with tcsh instead of csh. I recommend tcsh for the much
greater ease of use. It is available in executable form by ftp
on nic.funet.fi in /pub/unix/386ix/ics/shells. Email me if you
want an email copy.
Someone reported problems with the Xdriver on a SLIP connection. I am
trying to compile a new Xdriver. The distribution of X386 which I use
requires TCP/IP to work, so it is possible that there are delays on
slow lines since applications connect to the server via TCP sockets.
Excuse me for the inconvenience. Sincerely, Ferdinando.
