Build log

Additional context

The build process for Inkscape 1.3 fails with a ninja error after the 295th build step. The specific error message or cause of the failure isn’t clear from the output. The failure causes several dependencies of the build to fail as well, and prevents the system configuration from being updated.


[user@system:~]$ nix-shell -p nix-info --run "nix-info -m"

You should probably open an GitHub issue for that and ping maintainers of that package.

Good call, consider it done :slight_smile:
