I've followed the instructions at

Which starts with:

14.6.2 Configuring InnoDB for Read-Only Operation

You can now query InnoDB tables where the MySQL data directory is on
read-only media, by enabling the --innodb-read-only configuration option
at server startup.

Exactly what I want to do.

However the server bails out trying to create files.

For what it's worth /var/db/mysql is chmod 550, chown mysql:mysql, so
the mysql user has read access to the directory but can't create files
in it.

I've examined the source and found:

        /* Open temp-tablespace and keep it open until shutdown. */

        err = srv_open_tmp_tablespace(create_new_db, &srv_tmp_space);

        if (err != DB_SUCCESS) {

in storage/innobase/srv/srv0start.cc which is not wrapped with a if

Is this a bug I am hitting or am I holding it wrong?
