Hi, this made me really angry. Package yast2-backup is missing for 13.2:
http://software.opensuse.org/package/yast2-backup Why? This was one of the
most useful YaST
modules! Is there any replacement?

It had no maintainer AFAIK. Yast-snapper is probably its successor.

No way. There is no relation whatsoever between a backup, stored on different
media, and a
snapshot, which by definition is on the same media, and thus may have been
destroyed.

Agreed, snapshots are not for this.


YaST backup could, in theory, recover from bare bones.

Nobody I know has ever tried that. Recovery to Bare Metal is
seldom practical unless you happen to have an exact replica
machine laying around, but with today's disk naming default scheme
(UUIDs) even that is fraught with peril.
