  1. Right. 2.13 should be newer than 2.3. Thanks for the hint with version 2.5 starting to support inotify.

    I have to look into what glibc version the Linux installation on my DS412+ currently has. From the linked page it looks like I'm on "x86 : 3.10.35 #5532".

    I'm tempted to manually update, but I like how everything runs smoothly now. I like my NAS kind vanilla, for custom scripts and so on I have my shared host. So I might sit this one out and wait until Synology updates their Linux distribution.

    I haven't really checked which glibc my the custom Linux version of Synology runs. I only did a quick "uname -a":

     

     

    Linux DiskStation 3.10.35 #5565 SMP Mon Jun 8 16:47:08 CST 2015 x86_64 GNU/Linux synology_cedarview_412+
     

    Anyway, I found an older discussion in the Germany Synology board from 2012 with 2 "solutions":

    Solution 1 => chroot + install Debian

    Solution 2 => compile a more recent version here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dsgpl/

    Needless to say that both are time-intensive and needlessly complex. I'm still in favor of contacting the support regularly. It worked for the Plex glibc update. It should work for Sync, too.


  2. @NNois, @pattulus

     

    I suggest checking which version of glibc library your NASes have. I suggest it is 2.3 - which does not support inotify and therefore Sync can't receive timely notifications from OS.

    It's not even 2.3, Roman.

    What version is needed?

     

    If this is the problem I see only one solution for users who don't want to tinker with their NAS:

    Report this to Synology, so that they update their glibc library so that we have inotify support.

    I think it's also in the best interest of BitTorrent to ask Synology to perform an update. It's good for both products. By the… dear forum members, you should report it, too.
