Google Drive FUSE

Found this tool which exposes your Google Drive as a FUSE mount, allowing you to copy to and from your drive as if it was a directory on your desktop. It is slow, though.

Docker.io Builds Page For 32-bit Architectures

I have started posting up my builds of Docker.io. They are unofficial, and unsupported by the community, pending official support and code release supporting 32-bit architectures.

I have setup my system to auto-build every week and post to this shared directory. There’s a readme in the shared folder.

Grive & Fedora — Working

Grive is an open source command-line-based sync tool to synchronise a directory with your Google Drive. Grive is not in the Fedora repositories, although it is undergoing review for addition into the repositories.

In the meantime, if you want to use it, I’ve written a script that should pick the latest version from the russianfedora website. Bitbucket repository is here.

Direct link to script: here

Once you install the application, create a blank folder (this will be the sync folder), then run
grive -a
to request an authentication URL. Go to that URL, log into Google if you need to, and you’ll get a response string you need to copy back into the console window. If the authentication was successful, Grive will sync your files into the folder. Each subsequent time you run Grive, it will download and/or upload files to/from your Google Drive.

There is only one limitation that I’m aware of. Documents created from within Google Drive won’t sync, but if you convert them to odt or doc files, they will sync.
