It works, thanks

Applying this PR : solves the first issue launching GUI ... but there are others and a lot to apply. Furthermore, Archlinux is still with this old python-wxpython 4.0.7 version whereas grass needs 4.1.1. Better is to use 8.0.0RC1 at this time !

Grass 8 was planned for christmas but delayed ...

So you could use this PKGBUILD below =>

Any idea on when will v8 will arrive? or how to solve this issue in the meantime?

kikislater commented on 2022-01-08 12:48

python-wxpython needs rebuild Furthermore grass 7.8 doesn't work with python 3.10 It works with 8.0.0 RC1 ... Still waiting v8 release

I've errors launching the gui:

Warning: Mismatch between the program and library build versions detected.
The library used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1014,wx containers,compatible with 2.8),
and wxPython used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1016,wx containers,compatible with 2.8).

Thank you so much! You were a great help The patch worked.

jamiejquinn commented on 2021-06-17 10:26

GDAL 3.3 has broken GRASS compilation and vector/v.hull/chull.c must be patched to fix. I added the application of this patch to the PKGBUILD along with a prepare block which applies the patch:

source=("$_shortver/source/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz" "")
md5sums=('91f4830a5164cea703384814cd89cdf9' 'e72affb054af2794560971ddab90d0a2')

prepare() {
    cd "$pkgname-$pkgver"
    patch --forward --strip=1 --input="${srcdir}/b86314c7.patch"

dobedobedo commented on 2021-06-02 06:30

Hi, Is it possible to add a LC_ALL=C before make, so that the users don't need to specify themselves? Without that the compilation will fail due to locale issue.

kikislater commented on 2021-04-25 11:23

Could you please add python-pysvn as dependency or optional dependency to allow installation of plugins ?
