Dropbox syncing?

Hey folks. Just wondering whether anyone has written scripts to sync their Iliad with their Dropbox account--I just signed up for the latter a few days ago, and it seems like it would be very neat functionality to have. Thanks!

I guess this could be complicated because the dropbox daemon, which you would need to run on the Iliad, is closed-source. Thus, it is not possible to recompile it for the Iliad's 2.4 kernel.

I've never played Dropbox.

After a brief browse, I saw:
System reuqirements for Dropbox:
* GTK 2.12 or higher
* GLib 2.14 or higher
* Nautilus 2.16 or higher
* Libnotify 0.4.4 or higher


iLiad only has GTK+2.6. If dropbox is to be running on iLiad, the firmware must be upgraded.

But it should be possible to use a dropbox folder as an iLead companio software folder.

I set this up on my Home Mediacenter but then i failed until now to connect my iLead with my network and gave up. But i think if the iLead would have connect it should work out.

Have you tried this already?
