Install Desktop Syncing Client on RHEL8

As the title hints, i am trying to install the desktop sync client on RHEL 8.4 latest workstation. I realize that this page ‘Install On Linux - Seafile User Manual’ states, that only RHEL 7 is supported so far. So my expectation is just to get a few tiny hints so I can proceed my experiment.

While the creation of the repo file and the actual installation is going well with no errors (after enabeling epel and rpmfusion), starting the client is giving me a bunch of errors like:

seafile-applet; error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

The first few ones I could get around by installing e.g. compat-openssl10 which made available, but I can’t find any way to get around the mentioned

Has anyone else out there successfully installed the desktop sync client on RHEL8?

There is no official package for it yet. You may compile from source code. We’ll add support for CentOS 8 later.
