Installing and maintaining the FreeBSD Ports Collection or FreeBSD Packages (i.e. third party software).

Anyone know of a way to run dropbox? I have a 6.1 box that can't be upgraded for various reasons and if I could find a way to get dropbox running on it it would be great.

Anyone with any experience getting dropbox to work would be useful...

I can't help with Dropbox, but I use DriveHQ, which might be similar.

DriveHQ is REALLY simple to use as its availble by FTP, so nothing to install. There's also a web interface and a Widnows client but I don't use either so can't comment.

Unpack attached script using:
sh filename in /usr/ports/deskutils

Then type 'make install'.

I didn't do a run test, but no warnings/errors during compilation. Let me know if this works ok for you.
