Dropbox ext4 Hack

Gets around Dropbox dropping support for non-ext4 filesystems by wrapping the statfs64 function and overwriting the filesystem type.

Install the pre-built hack

Just run:

sudo ./fix_dropbox.py
dropbox stop
dropbox start

It will install the hack into /usr/local/. You can modify fix_dropbox.py to customize that.

Install from source

Make sure you have GCC installed and run the following:

make
sudo make install

Check that $PATH is set up properly. This should show /usr/local/bin/dropbox:

which dropbox

Restart Dropbox:

dropbox stop
dropbox start

Uninstall

sudo make uninstall
