Installing requirements FAILS + solution

Running on ubuntu 22.04, I created a virtual env and tried to install the dependencies → failed.
After a long research and failed attempts to fix requirements.txt, I came to the conclusion (written somewhere here in the forum) that the project MUST be run with python 3.8 (or lower).

Creating venv with python 3.8 fails, unless you do: apt install python3.8 python3.8-venv python3-venv

To sum it up:

  1. install python 3.8 with the above command
  2. run python3.8 -m venv venv
  3. activate with source venv/bin/activate
  4. Install the dependencies: pip install -r requirements.txt

Make sure the .ini file is correct, then run the pytest connection and it will fail, but in the application it passes (?!)

Ummm, is this a question !?
it is a nice start figuring there are issues with higher versions. but if you have an error it would be better to include what error you are getting :stuck_out_tongue:
