“changing the system requirements for the Dropbox desktop app for Linux”

If you’ve recently received a mail from Dropbox “[Action required] We’re updating Linux system requirements” and will be getting support discontinued due to running an old version of glibc, you probably want to move to Dropbox containerized via Docker.

This will affect you if you run Centos / RHEL 6 or 7.

Update: this docker image stopped working as docker views the Dropbox share as Ext2 which is unsupported. I’ve moved to running Dropbox on another VM and exporting the folder as an NFS share but there is a forked docker image which works.
