Dropbox daemon on Debian Etch - GLIB issue
Posted on 2011-03-14
I am trying to get the Dropbox daemon to run on a headless Debian Etch box but GLIBC_2.4 is not found.
I have tried installing build-essential but no joy.
I understand that GLIB is fairly central to the OS and that dropboxd is not available in source form to re-compile on the box.
Can anyone suggest a workaround or am I wasting my time.
