Question: I'm running ...[xxx-system]... with Xserver and keep having problems launching a display monitor when executing d.mon (from x0 to x7). Here is the error message: d.mon start=x0 Graphics driver [x0] is already running ERROR - eof from graphics monitor. Problem selecting x0. Will try once more ERROR - eof from graphics monitor. Answer: Obviously the monitor/system crashed before. The "Monitor-lock" file is still there and must be removed manually.
Start GRASS. Change directory to cd $GISBASE/locks There you find a directory names like your machine. Go there: cd "mymachine" # e.g.: cd bermuda List the files within this directory and remove them: rm -f mon.* Go back home: cd ~ Now you can start a new GRASS monitor.
