No Charts Fedora 14 2.4.606

I just installed 2.4.606 under Fedora 14. The install went smoothly except for a minor problem with the unsigned rpm.

I created a directory under /usr/share/opencpn and copied the charts that I've been using with 2.3.1 under Windows 7. I pointed OpenCpn to the chart directory using Toolbox -> Charts.

All I get on screen is the black outline of the coast.

The permissions and ownership of the directory is the same as the other directories under /usr/share/opencpn. The chart files are owned by root and have rwxr-rx-rx permissions. I added execute permission to see if it would help. It didn't.

I know I've left out something obvious, but I can't find it.

Thanks,

Coleman

Can you publish your logfile that is in your home directory? This will probably tell the story
It is not a good idea to put the charts where you have, nor to run them as root, nor making them executable.
Just create a chart directory somewhere in your home folder as a normal user.
