I am trying to run the latest version of GRASS from the AUR repository. Software starts fine but crashes as soon as GUI opens. It is repeatable and has a known cause of a bug in wxpython 3.9 and 4.0. The problem has already been patched in some distributions but not for Manjaro or I assume ArchLinux.
Problem was put on GitHub on 20th January and then closed as the person patched for himself wxPython 4.1 and its appropriate version of wxWidgets. I do not have the skills needed to do that can anyone help?
AFAIK the needed upstream fix on wyPython was this:
Restore GIL acquisition in wxPseudoDC::FindObjects* by RobinD42 · Pull Request #1849 · wxWidgets/Phoenix · GitHub
merged into their master on Nov 18, 2020. I have no idea in which
wxPython release this will be/has been included.
Arch Linux - python-wxpython 22.214.171.124-5 (x86_64)
→ python-wxpython 126.96.36.199-5, Build Date: 2020-11-12
==> too old.
Releases · wxWidgets/Phoenix · GitHub
on Nov 25, 2020: wxPython-4.1.1
==> not yet packaged.
