Yandex disk sync client and openSUSE


Are there any Yandex users here who have a viable solution on how to make a sync client work? The rpm on their site lists unmet dependencies (glibcc) and won’t install. If there’s a solution, I’m all ears.

I’m not a user, but just downloaded yandex-disk-latest.x86_64.rpm and extracted the rpm in it’s own directory and ran ldd against the binary in the bin directory, it finds everything by the looks so should work…

 ldd yandex-disk (0x00007ffffebc4000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f24d9ae9000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f24d98e1000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f24d96dd000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f24d94bf000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f24d9137000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f24d8dec000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f24d8bd5000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f24d881b000)
    /lib64/ (0x00007f24d9d00000)

If you ignore the libgcc requirement does it work as expected?

Thank you malcolm, will try it in an hour when I get home, didn’t dare try it because of the warning.

If I get it working, there’s also an indicator applet that’s packaged for ubuntu and available on github. To whom can I send a proposal to see if they can package it on obs?


A bit of work involved in making a proper or Makefile and install via rpm…

If it works, can look at it, there is a build on OBS, could try that one (it’s an old version) using scripts and manual stuff to install could cause issues…

Package for you;

Thanks a lot for your time and help malcolm.

I tried installing the rpm first, ignoring dependencies, but the result is it doesn’t work. When i install the indicator on top of it it also does nothing.

My guess is I have to get the rpm from yandex to work (the cli one that causes problems, not your gui - many thanks for packaging), but their support is of no help, they simply ignore my request and send a link to docs which aren’t helpful.

Edit: Anyways, had to send my computer for a display repair, so I’ll be trying it on an old laptop one of these days and check out how it works there.


Update and solution:

First of all malcolm, thank you for packaging the disk indicator.

As for the rest - it works. Install yandex disk cli client with breaking dependencies, but then set it up in cli. After you set it up in cli, the daemon will start running and you will get the indicator working also.

Kind regards,

Work for me :: sudo rpm -ivh --nodeps --force yandex-disk-latest.x86_64.rpm
