Hi Doug, The test in question sets the destination file to be read-only, then tries to write to it, to check that Mkbootstrap() will die. This does not happen on Cygwin, so the fix for the error in #102706 was to not even try that on Cygwin. I gather you're building an RPM on a CentOS box (ie not Cygwin). Is the FS it's using read-only? What do other Toolchain folks think about making this test do its thing in a tempdir()? That looks more idiomatic than relying on being able to write to files in t.

Correct, we are building on a CentOS 7.3 virtual machine. We eventually discovered (I don't remember how) that the package builds if you copy it to /tmp and run rpmbuild with sudo. The copy to /tmp was to get around our root-squash which prevented us from doing it in place. I can reproduce this reliably using our CentOS image (I have not tried a base from-ISO install), so let me know if there are any tests you'd like me to perform.
