How to test Insync on Raspberry Pi

There are 2 builds for Raspberry Pi.

To determine what type your system is, run readelf -a /usr/lib/ | grep FP or readelf -A /proc/self/exe | grep Tag_ABI_VFP_args. If it’s armhf there should be output similar to the following:

Tag_FP_arch: VFPv2
Tag_ABI_FP_rounding: Needed
Tag_ABI_FP_denormal: Needed
Tag_ABI_FP_exceptions: Needed
Tag_ABI_FP_number_model: IEEE 754
Tag_ABI_HardFP_use: SP and DP
Tag_ABI_VFP_args: VFP registers

The important part is Tag_ABI_VFP_args: VFP registers. If it’s not present it’s armel.

To run the build for Raspberry Pi do the following.

  1. Get the latest build from
  2. tar -xjf name-of-downloaded-build
  3. cd insync-portable
  4. ./insync-portable start
  5. Add accounts through the ./insync-portable add_account command. For help on Insync commands, run ./insync-portable help.
