Question Installing Insync on Slackware


I'm having trouble installing Insync on Slackware.

The Slackbuilds script contains an error - it requires a higher level of glibc then Slackware ships with (or something like that). We are working on that on the Slackbuilds mailing list, but I have a pretty critical need here, so I am looking for a workaround.

I tried using deb2tgz to convert a deb (I did my best to determine and use a package from the Debian version that shipped with glibc-2.23 (jessie), as Slackware does), and although the installation seems to work, insync does not run:

Code:
$ insync
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "insync.py", line 9, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/PyInstaller/loader/pyimod03_importers.py", line 627, in exec_module
  File "idesklinux/platui_impl.py", line 14, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/PyInstaller/loader/pyimod03_importers.py", line 627, in exec_module
  File "idesklinux/htmlui_impl.py", line 6, in <module>
ImportError: /usr/lib64/libEGL.so.1: undefined symbol: drmGetRenderDeviceNameFromFd
[3778] Failed to execute script insync
Does anyone have any thoughts about this error? (or alternatives for getting Insync installed?)

Hi,

Python is in /usr/lib64 in Slackware (i'm using slackware64 14.2) even python3.
You should create a symbolic link to fix the problem.

Cheers,

The Linux Mint 18.x package from here https://www.insynchq.com/downloads seems to work on 14.2, I downloaded it and then installed it using the 14.2 slackbuild from SBO, just changing the VERSION and DEBNAM variables. I haven't tested it but it opens without any errors.

Do you have a self-compiled version of python3.7? If you install the one from SBo, it is installed to /usr/lib64/, not /usr/local/lib/

I'm not sure if that's related to your problem or not, but it could be related.

Also, have you tried a previous version of insync? You can view older versions on SBo's git repo.

All great comments! Ok, so I've already got python3.7 via Slackbuilds installed, so I just went to create the link:

Code:
# ln -s /usr/lib64/python3.7 /usr/local/lib/python3.7
That seems to have worked in the way that I understand it:

Code:
/usr/local/lib# ls python3.* 
python3.7@
(what's the @ sign mean?)

But insync still fails, with the same message. Turns out whatever "PyInstaller" is doesn't exist:

Code:
$ ls /usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/    
README.txt   demo             iobench             pkg_resources                stringbench
__pycache__  easy_install.py  msi                 pynche                       test2to3
buildbot     freeze           nuget               scripts                      tz
c-globals    gdb              parser              setuptools                   unicode
ccbench      i18n             pip                 setuptools-40.6.2.dist-info  unittestgui
clinic       importbench      pip-18.1.dist-info  ssl
$ ls /usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/Py*
ls: cannot access '/usr/local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/Py*': No such file or directory
Maybe some development version of Python is needed?

Given the nightmare that updating from Insync 1.X was to 3.x, I would be extremely reluctant to run an older version at all, particularly just on one machine.

PyInstaller is in SBo, but it will be installed in /usr, not /usr/local.

Success!

I didn't think of just using the existing Insync script, doh!

Also, I cannot verify that it 100% works, but it does open so I'll take that as an answer. Thanks all!

1. I would create, in /usr/local/lib, a python3 -> python3.7 symlink too
2. The @ - in aliased versions of ls - means the filenames are appended with indicators
like the -F option does, @ in that case means: it's a symbolic link, not a normal file
