Could use help installing dropbox and/or plex-media-server

Just installed Devuan today. Trying to get apps installed. Having trouble with dropbox and plex-media-server. Everything is made for Debian or Ubuntu.

If they give you a choice between ubuntu and debian, take the package for debian.
Beowulf is Buster. Ascii is Stretch.
Avoid adding outside repos to sources.list.

Why not? What exactly are you trying and how exactly does it fail? Please post the full, verbatim commands and errors.

I think I have plex installed. I was not sure what to do because plex only contains packages for debian, not devuan. I was having trouble with this, but got it figured out.

How are you installing plex? I used to install it by downloading the Ubuntu/Debian .DEB file.
