    Sync for PowerPC

    I run one ppc and two x86 machines, and would like a single backup & synchronisation service for all three. However Ubuntu One, Dropbox, and SpiderOak do not support ppc.

    Does anyone know of a service like this that does support ppc linux?

    One workaround would be to use something like unison to sync your iBook to the Dropbox folder on one of the x86 machines over your local network.

    That would work, but it would also mean I would have to have both computers on at the same time, and we tend to only use one at a time. But it may be the only solution.

    Resurrecting because I recently took the plunge and installed linux onto my aging mac mini ppc (that was serving as a dvd player before).

    At any rate -- dropbox still doesn't support and I'd still love to have any easy way to sync files. The mini is my standing desk and do a lot of writing there but I'm needing to sit back down to do some editing and parsing of the data.

    Any help appreciated. Happy to see that others had the same question.
