Iâve just checked the source package, and youâre right.  That means my system got broken sometime after February 5, 2015 the last time _autorebase was updated.

Alas, I already reinstalled it while debugging the problem.

Put "mkdir -p ${b}" somewhere near the top of 0p_000_autorebase.dash or rebaselst.

Well, hereâs a fun find: The last time that file was written to was November 4, 2014, even though I did two or there setup.exe passes today while composing my prior reply.

$ getfacl /var/log/setup.log
# file: /var/log/setup.log
# owner: Warren
# group: Warren

So, why is setup.exe not writing to it?  604 is a weird permission set, but does it really need world writability?

I get the same permission set when saying âtouch xâ on this box.

Windows 10, 64-bit.
