[SNAP] read-only file system

Post by DarthWeber »

Hi, my installation is on a ubuntu system with snap install of FileBot_4.9.2

after using it without any issues for one year but some months of absense i just purchased a lifetime version and acticatet it through the cli. After that i can not access any of my mounted filesystems, even a simple test like filebot --log-file /volume1/amx.txt results with:

Code: Select all

Error during startup: /volume1: Read-only file system
java.nio.file.FileSystemException: /volume1: Read-only file system
        at net.filebot.util.FileUtilities.createFolders(Unknown Source)
        at net.filebot.util.FileUtilities.createFile(Unknown Source)
        at net.filebot.Logging.createLogFileHandler(Unknown Source)
        at net.filebot.Main.initializeLogging(Unknown Source)
        at net.filebot.Main.main(Unknown Source)
same result on other mountet filesystems. I run filebot as root and even granted 777 to the /volume1. Of course /volume1 is mounted readwrite and there is no problem to copy/delete/rename/mkdir or anything else.

Any ideas what could be wrong ? Could it be a license error ?

many thanks,
tom

i gave up with the snap since also a reinstall didn't solved that problem. The installation with the regular package works fine. Unsure what happened, because the snap worked until 24th of dec.

SNAP packages run in a confined sandbox by default which prohibits file system access to non-standard file paths irregardless of traditional unix permissions:

Code: Select all

sudo snap install filebot --edge --devmode
--edge … use latest release channel
--devmode … disable confinement to allow full access to your file system (otherwise snap confinement will default to Strict and limit file system access to your $HOME folder)
