I installed PyPy3 via sudo snap install and when I'm installing packages, I get this error:

OSError: [Errno 30] Read-only file system: '/snap/pypy3/2/site-packages/easy_install.py'

I tried finding the mount point and remounting with sudo mount -o rw,remount but to no avail:

mount: /snap/pypy3/2: cannot remount /dev/loop11 read-write, is write-protected.

I want to mount some directories under /snap as RW.


The underlaying snap filesystem (squashfs) is purely read only and cannot be made writable. Perhaps the pypy3 snap needs some love to redirect site packages to $SNAP_USER_DATA where it would be fully writable.
