DropBox-1.6.0 for Porteus

Post#1 by wread » 14 Apr 2013, 01:41

Hi all!

Here is a recent Porteus version of DropBox. I have packed the DropBox Server under root, that is, for users that normally log in as root, and have the DropBox in the pendrive self.

You can change this arrangement by extracting the xzm-file and moving/renaming the root file to whatever you want to use as DropBox server (i.e. /mnt/sdax -the x partition of a hard-disk, etc.) and repackaging again.

A daemon can be started from the launchpad that checks -if connected to IN- whether your DropBox local folder contains or not the same files as your DropBox folder in the "cloud" (=an account that you must previously have opened by dropbox.com). If they are not equal, the daemon uploads/downloads the necessary files to keep them in sync.

Enjoy!

The last version for Linux platforms is 1.6.0. The actual version 2.0.6 that you refer to, is for Windows platforms.

The Core engine of that software is in fact at 2.0.6 but the global version of this software under Linux is currently at 1.6.0.

Hi there,

New to Porteus and busy comparing it to Slax. Porteus scoring very well on a number of fronts (WiFi, VPN, multi user accounts) but unfortunately I can't get Dropbox to work.

I have put this module in the right folder, the DrobBox icon shows up as does the DropBox folder. But I can't get the set-up routine started, where the DropBox clients asks for the account details.

Any ideas anyone on how I can sort this out ?


Many thanks

Do you have a DropBox account already? It is free, you get up to 2 GB of storage; you must pay if you need more...

Hello, I succeeded in installing Dropbox the first time, but after that, it keeps asking account setup every new boot. Has anyone installed Dropbox succesully?, can you share the setup (i.e. /Dropbox /.dropbox folders location)?

Thanks,
alex

After installing dropbox you need to make a module from the changes it made to the system (or use Porteus with a changes= cheat). One way to do this is to open the script /opt/porteus-scripts/changes-time and remove the parts on line 30 that say: $changes/home and $changes/root.

Now install your dropbox, then immediately run the changes-time script to pickup all changes within a chosen time frame. Most probably you will find you need to make a module from:

/home/guest/.dropbox
/home/guest/Dropbox

You can do this like so:
mkdir /tmp/db
cp -a --parents /home/guest/{.dropbox,Dropbox} /tmp/db
dir2xzm /tmp/db /tmp/mydropbox.xzm


Drop the resulting module into your modules folder for next boot.

Thanks for your response Brokenman, but I realized that persistence stopped working,I dont' know why. I deleted .dat file, and created a new porteussave.dat ( ext4 formatted), tested in other computer and no luck. No errors at boot. Running Porteus 2.1 KDE . This is the output of porteus-livedbg in /var/log:

# Recognized devices:
/dev/sda1: UUID="24FB-950E" TYPE="vfat"
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="Reservado para el sistema" UUID="F0042B6B042B344E" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sdb2: UUID="885C30D25C30BCAE" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sdb3: LABEL="Datos" UUID="A660CDB160CD890F" TYPE="ntfs"

# Booting device:
/mnt/sda1

# Porteus data found in:
/mnt/sda1/porteus

# Changes are stored in:

# Non standard /rootcopy dir:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

And porteus.cfg:

KERNEL vmlinuz
APPEND initrd=initrd.xz changes=UUID:24FB-950E/porteus/porteussave.dat timezone=America/Argentina/Buenos_Aires kmap=es,us

Run Porteus the best way we can.

Everything looks in order. Please try editing the changes= line to: changes=/dev/sda1/porteus/porteussave.dat

Obviously double check that the save file exists in this path: /mnt/sda1/porteus/porteussave.dat
