Gentoo ebuild for btsync

Recommended Posts

I'm using gentoo, so i made an ebuild + init script for btsync.

If someone wants to use it, it's on my overlay: http://git.btbn.de/gentoo-overlay.git/tree/net-p2p/btsync

It has an init-script and conf.d file, so you can start btsync as system daemon on startup.

The configuration file for the system daemon resides in /etc/btsync.conf

You have to configure the user(most likely your normal system user) as which btsync is run in /etc/conf.d/btsync

The only real important setting is the pidfile, as the init system relies on it to be created in the right place, so don't change the preset path.

Thanks - it seems to be working well for me!! I love the speed of LAN syncs and no storage restrictions...

Goodbye to the crappy Google Drive, Wuala, Dropbox, etc... :rolleyes:

Hey there, I also wrote an ebuild for Btsync - concentrating on getting systemd support right. My build has some attempted init.d support in it, but as I do not use init.d on any of my machines, I have no idea whether it works. 

 

I will try to follow your example to ensure that my ebuild properly supports init.d. You could also pull from me for systemd support.

 

My ebuild is here, and I also wrote this nice tutorial/description for how my ebuild deals with systemd.
