asked Apr 13 in Bug by anonymous

With this basic diagram:

@startuml
[The foo] as foo
[The other foo] as foo2
[The bar] as bar

foo -> bar
foo2 -> bar
@enduml

Then PlantUML generates a diagram with "dot/GraphViz has crashed".

Centos 7 Linux x86_64

Java 1.8.0_161-b14

PlantUML 1.2018.03

Graphviz 2.30.1 (20150306.0020) (latest available for CentOS 7)

Graphviz 2.30 is pretty old.

If you cannot upgrade to 2.38, you should try to change your -> arrow to -->

This will probably help.
