    Default ifolder 3.9.1 client won't synchronize

    Greetings community.

    I tried to install the ifolder client found here (ftp://ftp5.gwdg.de/pub/opensuse/repo...SE_Tumbleweed/).

    For reference, I'm running openSuSE 13.1, x86_64
    kernel: 3.11.10-7-desktop SMP
    8 GB RAM
    simias-1.9.1.svn7628-1
    ifolder3-3.9.1.svn7662-2.86.x86_64
    nautilus-ifolder3-3.9.1.svn7628-5.89.x86_64
    novell-ifolder-client-plugins-3.9.1.svn7628-1.85.x86_64


    While I managed to get the client to launch fine, there are some anomalies I'm having, and was hoping someone here might be able to help.

    When I log in to the ifolder server, I can connect without issue. When I create a new folder, I can see it if I log in through the web front end. However, when I try syncing this new folder, or if I try syncing an existing folder I have defined, I get the following sync errors:

    If I go in through the web front end, I can drill down through the existing folder; If I try drilling down through the new folder, I get the following, at which point I have to re-log in to the web front-end:

    Further information for troubleshooting. When I ran the ifolder client from a terminal window, I also get the following logged to the term:

    Again, anyone with thoughts?

    I missed this thread earlier - generally, it's not good news with iFolder
    when sync breaks, because that means the database has been corrupted
    (generally). Unfortunately, there aren't any tools for repairing a
    broken iFolder database, so you have to essentially start over with the
    sync.

    I *loved* iFolder back in the 2.x days, and it worked very well for me.
    On Linux these days, I use tools like btsync, dropbox, and rsync to keep
    folders in sync.

    I've been using ifolder since the original beta and have been depending on it since.
    Nothing else comes close. Even though the mono fiasco with 3.x has been beyond painful.

    This is happening for me on three different opensuse 13.1 systems against two different oes11sp2 servers.
    The sync works fine with the windows client (of course...).
    Two of the clients were upgrades from 12.3, which I did have working with older mono releases. The third was a clean install.
    I did find a newer client build (7694), but there were no ifolder client plugin and nautilus plugin packages to match. and it wouldn't run without at least a matching client plugin package.
    I'm looking at the nofolder project, but I don't see a lot of progress yet, just enthusiasm.
    I'm considering just doing an opensuse server install. If I can use that, and the available client, I would be happy.
