Hi users,
I have got a proble passing from grass5.0.2 to grass5.3
I execute as root:
# make distclean
# rm -rf /usr/local/grass5
# rm -f /usr/local/bin/
# ./configure  --prefix=/mnt/maxtor_linux/grass_home/grass53 
--with-postgres-includes=/usr/include/pgsql/server/ --with-motif 
--with-motif-libs=/usr/X11R6/LessTif/Motif1.2/lib/ --with-blas 
--with-lapack --with-glw --with-dbm 
--with-dbm-includes=/usr/include/gdbm --with-freetype 
--with-freetype-includes=/usr/include/freetype2/ --without-readline 
--with-fftw --prefix=/usr/local/ --with-proj 
--with-proj-libs=/usr/local/lib --with-cxx
# make
# make install

everything works fine, but unexpected :
- my binary aren't in /mnt/maxtor_linux/grass_home/  directory but in 
- when i call d.mon start=x0 i get this error message:

    GRASS:~ > d.mon start=x0
    ERROR: In main.c: Couldn't get socket path.
    Failed to get socket name for monitor <x0>.
    Problem selecting x0. Will try once more
    Failed to get socket name for monitor <x0>.

My system is a RedHat9 strike.

First i didn't had any lilo files in my ....../grass53/dev directory, so 
i run the script create_fifos.sh and now they are here, but nothing 

Does anyone have any idea on how to solve my problem?
