I have been using GRASS to process some Landsat imagery but very recently, and as far as I am aware - after having done nothing different or changing the settings, I am trying to use GRASS and on start-up I receive the message:

GRASS 6.4.2 (newLocation):~ > 3D view mode: libgeos-3.3.6.so: cannot open shared  object file: No such file or directory
3D view mode: libgeos-3.3.6.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
3D view mode: libgeos-3.3.6.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
g.list: error while loading shared libraries: libgeos-3.3.6.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
g.list: error while loading shared libraries: libgeos-3.3.6.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
GRASS module 'g.region' not found. Unable to start map display window.

Consequently the GRASS GUI does not open once I have chosen my location (I have tested a range of locations that previously opened fine). I am using NX client to run GRASS. Would anyone be able to help with this error message?

Regards

Becky

You need to install the (lib)geos package. Which operating system are you using?
