No, I don't. I tried re-packaging it and found it was just easier to use the original 12.1 package, but I get an error about importing something if I launch it from the command line (not at my box at the moment, so can't be more specific).

It might be better to try and repackage one of the Ubuntu or Debian packages (since they also have 64-bit versions), but I'm a smidgeon busy at the moment, so it will probably have to wait until the evening, at least.

Well, I've tried SpiderOak on my Slackware 12.2 but their 12.1 client shows this error
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 6, in <module>
  File "__main__.py", line 131, in <module>
  File "__main__SpiderOak__.py", line 68, in <module>
  File "__main__SpiderOak__.py", line 63, in main
  File "oak/Oak.py", line 17, in <module>
  File "PyQt4/QtCore.py", line 14, in <module>
ImportError: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.9' not found (required by /usr/lib/SpiderOak/libQtCore.so.4)
Any ideas what's going on?

libc.so.6 -> libc-2.7.so

Any way possible to make it work?
Thanks

Well you could try changing the link to point to libc-2.9.so or later.

I'm not sure what versions of libc are available in Slackware 12.2. In Slackware 13.37 I have:
Code:
/lib/libc-2.11.1.so
/lib/libc-2.12.1.so
/lib/libc-2.12.2.so
/lib/libc-2.13.so
/lib/libc-2.9.so
and libc.so.6 points to 2.13.

Looks like Slackware 12.2 only has libc-2.7.so
But why would it work in 12.1 and not in 12.2?

I couldn't say. The package itself looked rather suspect to me. Not in the traditional Slackware format that you would see in Pat's tree or on SBo.

I now have a new clean 13.37 box so will try installing spideroak - it works on my other machine but there I installed-on-13.0 and did not reinstall when I cleaned/upgraded. Perhaps there-s a dependency or it might be that a package for another distro would work better... will test

UPDATE:

I first installed the package I had from the oher system, which was version 9801 - this seems to start fine, all the different menus and functions are accessible, and it minimizes to tray if there is a tray.

I closed that and then did an upgradepkg spideroad-9801%spideroak-9810.tgz and this too seems to work fine

You are right that the package is not a standard package - I suspect that spideroak just create one package then use one of these package conversion tools. There is also the chance that if one of the package-savvy people would offer half an hour of advice that the spideroak team might receive it and use it to make better packages, perhaps produce packages for v13 and 64bit as well as slackware 12. Or a public slackbuild. I mean it is in their interest

PS: for the coders out there, the spideroak code page shares a lot of tools and elements from their infrastructure and some client side. https://spideroak.com/code

Has anyone tried building a program that is an interface between the multiple online storage services? As in, it lets you store on each one up to the free amount so you can collect all the 'free' storage and host your files that way?

i'd think twice before using any kind of online storage service these days.
