Hello Guys,

While i work out the snapper on fedora 25 I've learnd more about python
and snapper.

Here the changes:


Created a combat util-linux 2.24.2 from fedora 20, static only.
This make snapper rollback available (needfull thing). Tryed to patch
snapper, there are to many changes. This will not breake centos 7
system. Only works for x86 / amd64 only this days & Centos 7, removed
many condition.


Removed "Requires: grub2", because that will install grub2 on
efi systems.


- Add gpl v3 for now
- Complete rewrote the plugin against the snapper dbus interface.
- filesystem root level check
- add single shot option, as it was on fedora before I patched it.
- more flexible as other ones I saw around.
- conflicts yum-plugin-fs-snapshot
Everything can be found at:



Needs epel-release because of python34

python34-pygobject3 is one of the badest hack inside spec file. I wanne
see it run with snapper-gui and compile on copr.

can be found at


Everything was tested on a Virtual Machine:

  - Snapper-GUI
  - snapper rollback
  - yum-plugin - every option.
  - grub2-btrfs

The only thing I still want to care is the grub2-btrfs plugin, 
so it fits to CentOS 7. Then the personal project is done.

At this time I will reinstall CentOS on my laptop on btrfs and use
backup by send & receive on a blockdevice ZFS at my home server or
other storage with btrfs. I will see. Hopefully turn work into fun :-).



PS: It's up to you to get a taste on.
