Is there an error message shown in the terminal window?
e.g. something about libgdal.so? or missing nsres() variable?

can you start in text mode ('grass63 -text') and run 'g.region -p'?

I expect there is some build error with those binaries, or GDAL libraries
on your system have been updated to a newer version than those binaries
were built with and are now incompatible.

I see on the download site there is a new grass-6.3.0-13.1.i586.rpm
added three days ago. Perhaps that solves it?
