Re: Dropbox on fedora 31 missing shared object libatomic.so.1

Thanks Luis. I appreciate the kind response of yours after all this troubleshooting. 

Truth is that after the steps Здравко offered there are not much to add without checking device specific details. I think this will be the best way to address this. 

You got mail!

@Luis28, One last check to see if by error your library don't match 64-bits:

file -L $(whereis libatomic.so.1 | sed s/libatomic.so:\ //)

The result should contain "ELF 64-bit LSB shared object". If result contain "ELF 32-bit LSB shared object" or nothing similar at all, there is something wrong in the library installation/configuration. In such a case the package, containing the library, have to be reinstalled.

Good luck.

Hello

 

I had to install several packages in order to bypass the error, including libatomic bus as well :

libxshmfence-dev
libxcb-present-dev
libxcb-dri3-dev
libxcb-dri2-0-dev
libxcb-glx0-dev
libxdamage-dev
libxext6
libglapi-mesa
libatomic1

 

That should be included in the package, dont you think ?

Hi @Cortex76,

That's exactly what Dropbox tries to do (not always successfully). Such a strategy is very wrong! The only right way is proper declaration of needed packages, not include them in one place (systems change over time). The exact reason related to libatomic1 was missing declaration and Dropbox developers rely this package exists in all cases, which isn't true. What they do - not declare needed, but instead libatomic1 content gets included in the application. What's result - the Dropbox application package gets bigger and bigger over time, which could be avoided, nothing more.

Hi @KingswoodCountry,

Your error message have said where exactly is the problem - i. e. missing library "libglapi.so.0". Where did you decide from that the missing library is part of "libatomic1" package?! Particular library, on focus, is part of "libglapi-mesa" package. 😉 I believe, you know what has to be done.

Hope this helps.
