Tests trying to write into '/.cache' and failed

Issue #255 on hold
Felix Yan created an issue

I am getting test failures when building in a chroot, full logs: https://paste.xinu.at/GrF/

I did not get it at the time when tox 2.0.1 was released, but as you can see in the logs, 2.0.1 fails now. I'm still trying to figure out what changed during the time (maybe due to a pip upgrade or something?).

I have also tried to specify HOME but that didn't help.

    I guess it's a problem with pip -- maybe you can set an environment variable for what pip uses as cache?

    Pip's docs says it respects $XDG_CACHE_HOME, but it seems that variable failed to make it into the virtualenv (as it was not shown in the env: part of the logs). Any hints on how to pass the environment variable into the test virtualenv?
