[GRASS-user] OSX Yosemite - GRASS 6.4 stopped working

Hi all

I'm running OS X Yosemite Beta, and my GRASS install just stopped working.
It was running fine until last week, but now I can't open it, with the
following error msg:

Last login: Mon Sep  1 11:37:04 on ttys002
GuanoBookPro:~ guano$
No such file or directory

[Process completed]

The same happens with GRASS-7

I don't recall updating anything (maybe some automatic update happened in
the background), and I already tried to reinstall GRASS.

Trying to run grass.sh from /Applications/GRASS-6.4.app/Contents/MacOS/
will not work as well, first with a Gis_set Error about the splash screen
(should a missing splash screen gif cause an error on startup??), and after
it, with a python error:

Starting GRASS ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./etc/wxpython/gis_set.py", line 1003, in <module>
    GRASSStartUp = StartUp(0)
  File "/Applications/GRASS-6.4.app/Contents/MacOS/etc/python/wx/_core.py",
line 8631, in __init__
  File "/Applications/GRASS-6.4.app/Contents/MacOS/etc/python/wx/_core.py",
line 8196, in _BootstrapApp
    return _core_.PyApp__BootstrapApp(*args, **kwargs)
  File "./etc/wxpython/gis_set.py", line 978, in OnInit
    StartUp = GRASSStartup()
  File "./etc/wxpython/gis_set.py", line 95, in __init__
    versionFile = open(os.path.join(globalvar.ETCDIR, "VERSIONNUMBER"))
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: './etc/VERSIONNUMBER'
Error in GUI startup. If necessary, please
report this error to the GRASS developers.
Switching to text mode now.
Hit RETURN to continue...

So, I went and reinstall wxpython, but again with no success.

any help at this point is very much welcome
