fetch –nohooks chromium : Permission Denied?

Issue

So, I’m trying to check out chromium, including all its dependencies. According to the chromium website, the following command should create a new folder named src in my current working directory.

I’m issuing this command in my depot_tools folder:

$fetch chromium --nosvn=True

But, I’m getting an error message showing that I do not permission to do so. Any clues why?

Here’s the actual message:

Running: gclient config --spec 'solutions = [{u'"'"'managed'"'"': False, u'"'"'name'"'"': u'"'"'src'"'"', u'"'"'url'"'"': u'"'"'https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src.git'"'"', u'"'"'custom_deps'"'"': {}, u'"'"'deps_file'"'"': u'"'"'.DEPS.git'"'"', u'"'"'safesync_url'"'"': u'"'"''"'"'}]'

Solution

what’s the cwd when you running $fetch chromium --nosvn=True?
From the trace, looks like you do not have write permission to write file ./.glcient.
