Comment 3 crabbed halo ablution 2023-05-07 19:30:19 UTC
I think I found the problem. Even though brltty was emerged with PYTHON_TARGETS="python3_11 -python3_10", it apparently used the default system interpreter, which at the time was set to python 3.10. Some hack is needed so it calls the right python interpreter (python3.11) and not the global one (python).
