libguestfs tools fail with odd error messages if TMPDIR is not an absolute path
Last modified: 2012-12-01 07:49:18 EST
Description of problem:
$ TMPDIR=. guestfish -a /dev/null run
guestfish: launch-libvirt.c:1172: make_qcow2_overlay: Assertion `path == '/'' failed.
TMPDIR isn't supposed to be a relative path. There are
three possible things we could do here:
(a) When parsing the environment, turn it into an absolute path.
(b) Still fail, but have a better diagnostic.
(c) Document it.
