We also seem to have assertions enabled in the Debian build (there have

the Debian build configuration is visible in the GitLab repo for KiCad
on Salsa.


I'm happily taken any patches if provided.

Hi Carsten-

Why do you have "hardening=+all" enabled? This is likely where the assertions are happening. We might consider "hardening=-all,+format,+fortify"

Note, this is different from the mac builds where the debug asserts are happening in the wx code.
