Trying to install on a new centos build. Tried using the .rpm files but kept getting this:
python3 is needed by nautilus-dropbox-2019.01.31-1.fc21.x86_64
python3-gobject >= 3.14.0 is needed by nautilus-dropbox-2019.01.31-1.fc21.x86_64
Installed python3.6, still the same issue.
Tried uploading via the headless method. Got this error (amongst a bunch of text):
ImportError: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.18' not found
I'm not a super pro at linux, but I am competent. What is going on?
1) Format home directory as ext4 at CentOS 7 installation (to be compatible with DropBox)
2) Enable FlatHub: https://flatpak.org/setup/CentOS/
3) Download the FlatPak DropBox: https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.dropbox.Client
Here is my two cents...
I uploaded and installed the latest centos 7 packages from scratch and it is running glibc 2.17xxxx. I am also finding in many places that glibc is very dangerous to upgrade since the kernel relies on it so heavily. Personally, that was disappointing to me because I had been using dropbox for years. I decided that I wasn't going to fool with it and moved over to google drive. Their app worked right away and provides the same services. Sorry dropbox, you lost a customer and I think you may lose a few more because of this.
I have the correct Glibc version as seen here:
`ldd (GNU libc) 2.19`
However, I also get the `ImportError: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.18' not found` when running the dropbox headless version. (dropbox-lnx.x86_64-70.4.93)
From the errors I encountered, I have a strong suspicion that the compiled headless version provided by Dropbox, is still trying to use the 2.18 version of GLIBC.
Note that I had a previous version of dropbox working on the same machine, dropbox-lnx.x86_64-59.4.93,
