After the (successful?) installation of GRASS I get the following error message:

Starting GRASS ...
/usr/local/grass5/etc/set_data: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
What to do?


After the installation of the termcap library, GRASS will work.

E.g., for SuSe Linux: the termcap library is located in package series [a]

Failing that, try creating a symbolic link, e.g.

        cd /lib
        ln -s /usr/lib/
(Use a path and version which is correct for your system.)

On systems which don't have a separate libtermcap, the functionality which it provides is often included in libncurses.
