./setup.py install --home=install tries to create '/etc/xpra'
|Reported by:||a3nma3nm||Owned by:||a3nma3nm|
When trying to compile trunk and installing as a local user with "./setup.py install --home=./install", installation fails with "error: could not create '/etc/xpra': Permission denied".
The exact steps to reproduce this are:
svn co https://www.xpra.org/svn/Xpra/ cd Xpra/trunk/src # uncomment line 619 in setup.py to avoid an error in gtkitemfactory.h ./setup.py build # completes without errors ./setup.py install --home=./install
I am using Debian stretch/sid, and the Debian package "xpra" is not installed.
Of course it is normal that setup.py doesn't get permission to create /etc/xpra -- the point is that it shouldn't try to do so, when "--home=./install" is passed.
Thanks for your help on this!
