I have tried opening the existent mapset after my new install of fedora 15, but this what I get after I try to open the mapset.
Cannot open the mapset. Cannot start /usr/lib64/etc/lock
This is annoying I dont know what to do.
Do you refer to a GRASS "mapset"?
Yes it is a Grass mapset.
I have been working on Fedora 14 with these mapset and after installing F15 I found this problem while trying to open one.
Ah, that is Grass 6.4 from F15 on. It might be related to that.
That file should be /usr/lib64/grass-6.4.0/etc/lock (which is awful enough). Grass doesn't value the FHS a lot.
Please check, if your ~/.qgis/QGIS.conf has:
There is no such file in ~/.qgis/QGIS.conf
In fact, the only file available is qgis.db
and rest folder is empty.
Argh, I mixed it up. The file is ~/.config/QuantumGIS/QGIS.conf
Yes! I found the file what next?
This is what it has under head [GRASS] as follows,
what to do next?
Change the gisbase line to:
, if you use a 32 bit system. You obviously didn't define this path at all. Did you activate the grass plug-in inside QGIS? Doing so, normally asks you this question.
Yes, it has opened the mapset for now.
But, the QGIS.conf file looks a bit unusual, it has other many things which for now seem irrelevant. But, if some data for analysis is needed then I can paste its content.
Well, you can paste the config file somewhere, but I assume it looks as "unusual" as it simply does. It contains some binary data.
If in doubt, rather ask on #qgis (freenode) or file a bug on their bug tracker, as this is not a packaging issue or specific for Fedora.
We'll introduce a version-less symlink into the GRASS package, to keep the configuration from going wrong if the version of Grass changes. I'd like to close this bug, when we ship that.
