Resilio Sync

Post by louder »

Hello everyone,

Can we have Resilio Sync added to the list of the available software of Dietpi?
Installing this on a Raspberry Pi is cumbersome and prone to various errors.

Thanks!

anyone? I've followed this guide https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/artic ... e-on-Linux but doesn't work. I suspect because I use root as user, but I wouldn't know how to change that.

Since this is the part to request things for the DietPi i don't feel well to troubleshoot your installation routine :ugeek:
But i can say, resilio-sync installed just fine with my RPI3.

Edit:
Tested the install. Could use the web interface and stumbling around. Seems okay to me. :idea:
Everything i say can and maybe will be corrected by the DietPi seniors in this forum :D
BananaPi M1 using image for BananaPi Pro.

correct, this isn't the place to troubleshoot. Thank you for making me notice it.

Anyway, it'd be nice to have in as an option in the install software list.

Oh wow...looks like a VERY cool application!

I second the request...it could be used as a cloud server like dropbox and nextcloud easily

it's similar to syncthing, but working [sorry] and less complicated.

Try adding user rslsync and add to sudo
sync service automatic startup as user rslsync

Code: Select all

Run as rslsync user:

sudo service resilio-sync start

sorry, that didn't work for me.
can you elaborate?

thanks.


*I am very frustrated with this. This should be easy as cake but for this user permission problems everything gets complicated and difficult to replicate. I need the community support for having it integrated into the standard software. Thanks

UPDATE:

I managed to make it work by changing the owner of the folder to the Resilio Sync user rslsync with the command

Code: Select all

chown -R rslsync folder_name
Thank you. Although, I would still like to be baked into DietPi.

Resilio Sync is not really secure.
Syncthing does the same thing but it's fully open source, so there is much less concern for security of your data.
May I ask you what's not working for you? I've been running syncthing almost since the start of the project, and it's been working very well for years (just a few sync conflicts every now and then, but this is due to my specific configuration, actually).
