[GRASS-user] RE: [GRASS-dev] Can't create locations using EPSG codes

One thing that I just noticed is that my epsg file isn't in the standard
location as the default path of /usr/local/share/proj/epsg given in the
Grass startup screen. My epsg is in /usr/share/proj/epsg - but I specify
this path to the startup window, so it should just get passed verbatim.
Could that make any difference?

gdal 1.3.2 and the gdal-grass 1.3.1 plugin installed, it that makes any
