A long time ago I had set up an Arduino Yun to send files to Dropbox... I tried now and it ends in "killed" when trying to install the latest Dropbox Python module.

pip install (six, urllib3, etc etc) does work individually without running out of memory. Unfortunately when I install all but Dropbox, and then put the Dropbox module code folder in the current directory, it does start to import Dropbox with import dropbox but ends up with the KILLED message.

Is there a way I can connect to my current Dropbox without it using all of the 60mb of RAM and quitting... I keep getting the error with version 2.1:

Error.Cannot connect to Dropbox [400] u'v1_retired'

    Have you configured any swap space on your Yun?

I'd eventually figured out how to do it running the latest Dropbox module installed into the sd card where there was room.
