Opensuse 13.1 - SpiderOak

I have a shiny new 13.1 installation (clean install), my first experience with OpenSuse.

I’m trying to install SpiderOak, I did not find SpiderOak in YaST, or, so I downloaded the 64-bit, Fedora-based .RPM from the SpiderOak website.

The app seems to install fine, when I run it for the first time, I enter my credentials, then select ‘add a new device’ and as soon as I click ‘Next’ it crashes (it ends my session, and I’m faced with the OpenSuse login screen).

I checked dmesg and some logs and don’t see anything to indicate why it crashed (ie. no seg faults, etc.)

Did I get the correct package? As I google, I see mention of SpiderOak being included in OpenSuse 12.1, even some mention of a bonus code particular to OpenSuse that could get you more storage, or a discount, etc.

Any help to get this running in 13.1 would be appreciated, so far I’m in love with Suse! It’s screaming fast on my machine. But…I’m also in love with SpiderOak! :slight_smile:

Thank you.

I just came across your post. Sorry it’s over a month later.

I’ve got a 32-bit version of openSUSE 13.1 installed. I just downloaded the 32-bit Fedora RPM (5.1.1-1.i386.rpm) and installed it into my openSUSE machine.

I started it up (SpiderOak), entered my login creds and let it go thru the 10-step init phase. No issues. I just added a empty folder on my openSUSE machine to an existing sync I have at SpiderOak and it is populating now.

I don’t know if any of that helps you, but at least it will be documented here for anyone searching for confirmation SpiderOak can be installed on openSUSE.
