Re: Compiling Dropbox on SLED 11

That method is not actual anymore.

‘Here’ (http://pomka.blogspot.com/) I found a good step-by-step guide
to compile Dropbox for SLED 11 SP1 (tested OK)

Cheeers,
Stefano

Any suggestions for a repository or a place I can download the rpm ?

Hi
Search here http://software.opensuse.org/search? select sled11 in
the
dropdown and you will find it’s been built by a few people already.

Hi
For SLED 11 SP1, just change the dropdown.
http://software.opensuse.org/search?q=dropbox&baseproject=SUSE%3ASLE-11%3ASP1&lang=en&include_home=true&exclude_debug=true

The Open Build Service provides a much better platform to compile/build
rpms as it includes both brp and rpmlint checks to ensure there are no
hidden issues with the compiled source.

That’s far better way. I didn’t mind, on search.opensuse.org/search,
if you search for “dropbox” it does not match anything because by
default the search option “Include users’ home projects” is not checked.

Hi!

I compiled Dropbox 1.4 from sources, but Nautilus integration doesn’t work.
Then I tried to install older versions of Dropbox (0.7.1 and 0.6.9) from packages, but they broke Nautilus.

Did anyone make this work?

Hi
Have a look on the Open Build Service;
http://software.opensuse.org/search?q=dropbox&search_devel=false&search_unsupported=false&baseproject=SUSE%3ASLE-11

Grab one of the src rpm’s inspect and rebuild?

Hi
The spec file needed some tweaking, pus docutils is missing. I’ve
branched/built on the Open Build Service and tested here and it’s
working fine;
