Building Dropbox source for Raspberry Pi

Sun Jan 06, 2013 10:08 pm

Has anybody attempted to build and make any fixes to the Dropbox linux source to enable it to work on the Raspberry Pi? Running configure on the source requires a bunch of extra packages which I've not been able to resolve. Before I spend too much time on this, has anybody else tried and succeeded or hit an impenetrable roadblock?

My understanding is that https://www.dropbox.com/help/247/en is just an installer that downloads an x86 binary.

The instructions at that site should work, but I have not tried to do that with the rpi.

Although it says it is for Nautilus you can possibly use it without Nautilus. Try it and tell us
