Description Pierre Ossman 2010-07-15 07:14:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Whenever I try to run mock on my F13 system, I get the following:

INFO: mock.py version 1.1.1 starting...
State Changed: init plugins
State Changed: start
INFO: Start(/home/ossman/rpm/SRPMS/cendio-build-utils-1.1-1.src.rpm)  Config(epel-5-i386)
State Changed: lock buildroot
State Changed: clean
State Changed: init
ERROR: Could not create dir /var/lib/mock/epel-5-i386/result. Error: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/mock/epel-5-i386/result'

ERROR: Could not create dir /var/lib/mock/epel-5-i386/result. Error: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/var/lib/mock/epel-5-i386/result'

I am provided with the consolehelper dialog so it should be getting the privileges needed. There is also nothing wrong with the installation of the package:

$ rpm -V mock


Here's the relevant directory:

$ ll -a /var/lib/mock/epel-5-i386/
total 12
drwxrwsr-x 3 root mock 4096 Jul 15 13:12 .
drwxrwsr-x 3 root mock 4096 Jul 15 13:12 ..
drwxrwsr-x 2 root mock 4096 Jul 15 13:12 root

Never mind. I'm an idiot. I had reinstalled this machine since the last time I used mock, and I had simply forgotten to add my user to the mock group.
