Verify that the fifos are created : look in <grass_dir>/dev.
If there is no fifo.* files, you should create them with
a script "create_fifos_new.sh" in the same directory.

If your <grass_dir> is not /usr/local/grass5.0b, you must edit
this shell script and replace /usr/local/grass5.0b by your
base directory, then run "sh create_fifos_new.sh".

This will create the fifos needed.

If this doesn't work, verify that there is no lock file remaining
(in <grass_dir>/locks/<your machine_name>)...
