Is it possible to get Snap on Gitpod?

Every time I try to run Snap it says:
sudo: setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE): Operation not permitted
error: cannot communicate with server: Post http://localhost/v2/snaps/hello-world: dial unix /run/snapd.socket: connect: no such file or directory

Is there a way to get it to run?

Hi @AyaanZaveri ,

welcome to the Gitpod community!

Unfortunately there is nothing you as a user can do about that. We cannot allow making users programs arbitrary syscalls, but some programs (like snap in this case) insist on making some.
Maybe we’re able to whitelist some calls, and respond with “Ok” without actually performing them (this would IMO work in this case), but that’s a bit far off atm…
