I've installed GRASS 7 on Ubuntu by compiling from source (trunk).
 Everything seems to have gone fine during the compiling/installation
process, but I can't get it to run from the command line.  When I try and
run it I get the following error:

WARNING: It appears that the X Windows system is not active.
A graphical based user interface is not supported.
Switching to text based interface mode.

Hit RETURN to continue

/usr/local/src/grass_trunk/<UNKNOWN>/<UNKNOWN>/.gislock: No such file or
ERROR: /usr/local/grass-7.0.svn/etc/lock:
Unable to properly access
Please notify system personel.

I'm running this on a server, so don't have a GUI.  Does this mean that
GRASS hasn't installed correctly?
