I am trying to get snapper working in my Mint 14. (The version from launchpad is old and not compatible with Ubuntu 12.10. The OpenSuSe's build project failed to build it, too). So I try my luck with manual compile.

Following the Snapper Development page, I've downloaded repo and installed the dependencies.

After make finally I've got this error:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/adam/tmp/snapper/server'
  CXXLD  snapperd
snapperd.cc:125: error: undefined reference to 'boost::thread::interrupt()'
/usr/include/boost/thread/pthread/shared_mutex.hpp:129: error: undefined reference to 'boost::this_thread::disable_interruption::disable_interruption()'
/usr/include/boost/thread/pthread/shared_mutex.hpp:137: error: undefined reference to 'boost::this_thread::disable_interruption::~disable_interruption()'


I've noticed another quesion that suggests adding -lboost_thread-mt to linker invocation. Simple enough... and compilation finished successfully.

But after that and sudo make install whatever way I try invoke the snapper I get error Failure (org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply).

And I'm stuck here. Can anyone help me?
