Problem with cairo...

"checking for location of cairo includes... checking for cairo.h... no configure: error: *** Unable to locate Cairo includes."

Cairo is installed correctly but does not finish compiling grass

Any solution?

For what?

Please add missig dependency "pkg-config"

saultdon, thanks for finding that! Like the ticket says, it's more of a workaround, but it should do the job for now.

Looks like the ctypes issue has been fixed upstream in ticket 3331 via this patch

I suspect it's an incompatibility with gcc7, but I haven't had time to look into it more.

Same problem here as saultdon. I cannot build grass, the script ends up with errors:

Errors in:
In case of errors please change into the directory with error and run 'make'.
If you get multiple errors, you need to deal with them in the order they
appear in the error log. If you get an error building a library, you will
also get errors from anything which uses the library.
Finished compilation: Sat 3 Jun 15:08:54 UTC 2017
make: *** [Makefile:70: default] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

Trying to build today and wondering if this is just something wrong with my setup or need to file an upstream bug report.

Errors in:

I pasted the output of the error when using `make` inside that dir at

ok thank you, next time I will ;-)

kikislater, that's what the "Flag package out-of-date" option is for.
