Graphviz issue

Was the issue with Graphviz resolved? The URL ( provided in the manuel returns a 404.

Update: yes, it seems Graphviz can be installed simply by "pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-graphviz". The manual has been updated accordingly. Geggi


When following the instructions on this page, I run into the following error when executing this code "python3 install":

gcc -Wno-unused-result -Wsign-compare -DNDEBUG -g -fwrapv -O3 -Wall -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -march=x86-64 -mtune=generic -O2 -pipe -I/usr/include/python3.10 -c fontconfig.c -o build/temp.msys-3.3.6-x86_64-3.10/fontconfig.o

I also had to install "pacman -S python3-setuptools" to build Gramps. Geggi

Greggi... are you asking for tech support or wanting to help update misinformation on this page?

If you're looking for support, posting a question in the Discourse Forum will get this in front of more people with broader experience.

It is about the instructions on this webpage. I failed to install Gramps development environment following the steps described here. I will follow your advise to check the discourse forum and update the instructions when I got a clarification. Geggi
