Re: Cannot use grass on vfat partition

Glynn,

Unfortunately, this is not the case. Directory
drwxrwxrwx /media/mifat32/test/PERMANENT
is in upper case, with its
DEFAULT_WIND  myname  wind files
all of them with -rwxrwxrwx permissions.

If I start
grass -text
on /media/mifat32
I enter a normal grass session (although g.mapset does not work!)

But if I do
grass -gui
I get the gui with
GIS data directory: /media/mifat32
Project Location: test
Mapset: testmapset

and when  I select Enter GRASS, I get an error:
Warning Invalid Mapset
Warning <0> is not a valid mapset.

Also, if within the grass text session I do:
  g.mapset /media/mifat32/test/testmapset
I get:
ERROR: The mapset does not exist.

even if I do it from within the

Re: Cannot use grass on vfat partition

Just found the difference between locations on
the vfat and on the ext3 partition:
mapsets on the vfat partition get
files  MYNAME  WIND as myname and wind.

Just renaming these files makes everything work.

What I do not understand is why grass
writes thes files in lower case, it does not
with LOCATION for example, and even less
why grass has a different behaviour
for different partition formats

Note that in both cases I'm using linux (Ubuntu 8.04)
and grass6.2.3

Thanks

That's correct. The mapset= argument should be the name of a mapset
(e.g. "testmapset"), not a full path.

That explains it.

It isn't GRASS that's doing this, but Linux.

The reason why it only does it to those files and not to PERMANENT and
DEFAULT_WIND is the length of the name.

Re: Cannot use grass on vfat partition

Thanks, solved by adding shortname=win95 to the mount options in /etc/fstab

Should a bug report be filled? by me?
Should I write a note in the wiki?

A note in the Wiki would be good, if you can figure out where to put
it.

A bug report is problematic because it isn't clear where the bug lies. 
The handling of PERMANENT is a bug, but won't normally get triggered
in practice. I can't see where the incorrect test for MYNAME or WIND
lies.

Hi,

I have a vector points  and a raster (r.rescale kernel [1-100]).  This

|g.region rast=kernel
|v.rast.stats vector=points raster=kernel colprefix=UD
-

These  statistics  are  calculated,   both  few  rows  dont't  have  a

llnl visit and grass

I am playing now with visualisation of 3D Grass data exported as vtk 
files in llnl's VisIt (https://wci.llnl.gov/codes/visit/) in Ubuntu 
gutsy. I have quite good experiences with Paraview also, but I miss some 
features what VisIt actually have. Do have somebody experiences with 
this issue?

Many thanks for any ideas and advices

Tomas

ps- note new mailing list send-to address

pps- I notice in a few place the new version of MediaWiki does not show
third-party screenshots, just a URL link to them in text. How to fix
that?

Re: examples of data error handling in GRASS

Bump...

Does the silence mean that noone worries about error handling in GRASS 
or that my question is not clear ? ;-)
