Why does the dmg installer keeps downloading and mounting for this particular version? Its annoying since not only does my work get interrupted if I have to close the laptop lid for a few moments but also the fact that it canot be ejected normally and requires a force eject which adds further to the delay.
The dropbox app is already updated to the latest version.
This build apperas to be broken in OS X, Snow Leopard (10.6. - does not start.
I know you are disctontinuing support in Jan 2018, but thought I had between now and then to come up with an alternative solution.
Tried reverting to previous stable version which worked fine ... until it auto-updated and died.
Error messages conclude with: "ImportError: Bundle could not be loaded"
I have a 2008 MacPro currently running Mac OS X 10.9.5. Starting Monday, I had kernel panics several times in an hour. Being that Dropbox is the only thing that updated in the last week -- because my attempts to stop Dropbox's insistant auto-updating have failed -- I took it out of my Login items. I have not had a single panic since. In the future, I will just manually launch Dropbox once a day or so.
I think perhaps v34.4.20 isn't as stable as you feel it is.
I also think perhaps Dropbox no longer meets my needs. Causing system instability, having an updater I cannot turn off and that STILL checks far too frequently for updates (every hour, when the app is only updated every other week), and basically being a jerk are all very good reasosns to leave.
Thank you for raising the issue. The Dropbox v36 release should have fixed the failure to eject DMG issue. If you are willing to try the Beta build, you can test it out immediately, otherwise please wait until v36 is released as stable.
We released v34.4.22 on Friday that should fix the boot issue on MacOS 10.6. Please try it out. We do not intend to break 10.6 compatibility before the announced end of support.
The problem still persists even if the client is updated to 34.4.22 stable. What will happen is a 34.4.20 installer (dmg) will still mount. If you double click, it will downgrade the installed client to that version. Ignoring it is still difficult since the windows pops up on top of your active windows once computer is revived from sleep. Ejecting is somewhat easier but it still gets stuck sometimes.
The stable builds are for the Desktop client, which is regularly updated with many improvements and fixes.
A beta build is an early release feature that is subject to these additional terms.
