GLib plus GIO fails because of fchown. snapcraft-preload ineffective


  1. clone
  2. build and install the snap
  3. run the command glib-test TWICE

The first run creates the test file, which works, and the second run attempts to rewrite it, which fails.

The error is related to GIO’s g_file_replace() function. Using snapcraft-preload does not fix the problem. This is preventing the GIMP beta from working successfully.

Any suggestions on working around this or why the preload is ineffectual?

Please can someone look at this and report back?

Still waiting on someone to look at this :slight_smile:

Thanks for the snap! Please see: Chown to current user
