comment Dropbox on Debian EAGAIN error on NTFS share
In the end it actually seems to have been solved by fiddeling enough with my fstab: however, the only working solution was this one UUID=662058B320588C45 /media/ntfs ntfs-3g uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=022,fmask=133 0 0 that I found in the Arch Wiki under the ntfs-3g entry (it adds directory and file permissions): wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NTFS-3G

comment Dropbox on Debian EAGAIN error on NTFS share
@slm I am running Debian wheezy but switched to testing repositories (kernel: 3.9-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.9.6-1 x86_64 GNU/Linux ). My dropbox client is version 2.2.8 (just downloaded the newest release, but the problem persists). There doesn't seem to be a way to find out what the other endpoint to a UNIX socket is? I would really like to know what is blocking the call.

I tried the symlinking solution already and it did not work. I just checked the fstab solutions and unfortunately they don't help either. Thanks for the pointers though.

comment Dropbox on Debian EAGAIN error on NTFS share
@derobert Ah thanks those are some great pointers in general :) Unfortunately fd 12 and 13 both simply say socket:[13607] and socket:[14390]. They both have the same information in fdinfo cat /proc/5687/fdinfo/13 pos: 0 flags: 02004002. With "it stopped" I mean, that I can still see the tray icon and the "sync" arrows, but it does never complete - and when I strace it, it always produces the same messages and the dropbox process eats up 100% CPU on one core.

If I remember correctly the time before it was tmux that was tainted (ok still a console application) - I might give that a try as well.

That's what I already thought - I will take at look at LKCD.
