DropBox Client crashes [Solved]

Postby albfneto » Tue Mar 18, 2014 20:15

In all of my installations of Sabayon, the DropBox Client no more works.
this is the error message:

Code: Select all
$ dropbox start -i

Seems that this occurred because the support (packages) and dependencies of the DropBox package was old.

I simply recompiled Dropbox and their support, with the Portage versions, and now it works.

I suggest to the Sabayon's Team to recompile DropBox and their acessory packages.

If you have expertise in mix Entropy with Portage:

1. Remove the old DropBox:

Code: Select all
# equo rm --configfiles dropbox


2. Update the Portage database and the Overlays

Code: Select all
# emerge --sync
# layman -S


3. Upgrade the support of GCC, (needed to sucessfully recompile nautilus-dropbox)

Code: Select all
# emerge -av autoconf automake make cmake


4. Directly in your language, recompile DropBox and theis support:

Code: Select all
# LINGUAS="your language code" emerge -av --nodeps net-misc/dropbox thunar-dropbox nautilus-dropbox kfilebox


In my system, now, all is working:
