Question: I've a problem to understand point (5) of
bin_install.html (create lock-directory...).
With uname -n I get localhost.localdomain
So after cd locks is it right to do
mkdir localhost.localdomain ?
- First your machine has to get a name (mulligan, Thuille, grassmachine,
what you like) and a domain name, even if not working in a network
-> Check this:
will output this name.
- go to grass42/locks/
- mkdir "machinename" (without quotes)
So the machines name is "hgeo02".
Create the required directory:
$ cd grass42/locks
$ mkdir hgeo02 (this is still an example)
$ cd ..
$ chmod -R 1777 locks
Ready. Now proceed with GRASS installation.
