Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1248806
DNF Snapper plugin takes snapshot after changes instead of before
Last modified: 2017-08-09 12:00:41 EDT
Description of problem:
DNF Snapper plugin is meant to provide a rollback for bad changes (user error using DNF, poorly tested packages, etc.)
It would make a lot more sense creating a snapshot before installing (but after downloading) packages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install dnf-plugins-extras-snapper
2. make system changes using dnf (install/update/uninstall some package)
3. Check Snapper snapshot
post-install system is snapshotted. By this point it may already be broken.
Snapshot should happen right before install
Depends on functionality inside DNF. We dont have before_transaction() state
Do I need to file a bug against DNF? Where/who/what/etc.?
We already have it here... Trying to find number...
