The guix home test is failing on the testsuite, when the requirement to
provide XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is not met. The test should be set up to provide a
proper environment irrespective of the setup.

The test log ends with:
+ cat
+ guix home reconfigure /tmp/tmp.zQT5LdzYx7/home.scm
/gnu/store/f8pjw90hv5176rjq126zbmy2vm2jdggw-home
guix home: error: mkdir: Permission denied
+ chmod -Rf +w /tmp/tmp.zQT5LdzYx7
+ rm -rf /tmp/tmp.zQT5LdzYx7
FAIL tests/guix-home.sh (exit status: 1)

I did not see anything interesting before these lines, but I can provide
the whole log if needed.

Regards,
g_bor

Could you share the content of
/gnu/store/f8pjw90hv5176rjq126zbmy2vm2jdggw-home (possibly redacted to
remove personal data)?

Note that the test runs fine when doing ‘guix build guix’, so I wonder
what could be interfering here.

Thanks,
Ludo’.

I managed to get the following result:

I could make the test pass by including elogind in my system.

Then I made it fail again by the following:
1. sudo unmount /run/user/1000
2. sudo rm -rf /run/user/1000
