Hi,

i just installed openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64). I tried to use Snapper but
using the Yast2 plugin failed as well as "sudo snapper create".
var/log/snapper.log told me: libsnapper(3529)
Snapshot.cc(nextNumber):362 - mkdir failed errno:2 (No such file or
directory)
Using strace i found that snapper needs the directory "/.snapshots".
After creating this directory, everything seems to be fine, i can now
create snapshots, and Yast automatically creates them.
Perhaps snapper could auto-magically create the directory if needed?

Hi Marcel,

Would you mind reporting a bug in Bugzilla [#1]? It would be also nice to add there which version of snapper do you use and how to reproduce the bug.

Thanks in advance
Lukas
