Hi all,
I registered on your list only a few days ago and I love to use grass (newbie though), but I am having a problem importing a geotif raster data. Any clue as to why that is happening? I have pasted the text below. I have tried using the -o flag but I never get the syntax right.

r.in.gdal input=C:\Users\Franzy\Desktop\Ahafo_prst\tograss.tif output=ahohyehye_class
Warning 1: TIFFFetchNormalTag:ASCII value for tag
"GeoASCIIParams" does not end in null byte
No projection name! Projection parameters likely to be meaningless.
Datum <unknown> not recognised by GRASS and no parameters found
ERROR: Projection of dataset does not appear to match current location.
Location PROJ_INFO is:
name: Universe Transverse Mercator
proj: utm
datum: wgs84
ellps: wgs84
zone: 30
no_defs: defined
Dataset PROJ_INFO is:
ellps: wgs84
You can use the -o flag to r.in.gdal to override this check and use the location definition for the dataset.
Consider generating a new location from the input dataset using the 'location' parameter.
