*For users flagging out of date*

Please note that PlexPass users get access to later versions than non-plexpass users. Thus this package will be behind when newer versions come out.

You will want to flag

Please do not flag this as out of date unless you go here (and are not a plexpass user/logged in) and see a newer version

@techwiz thank you too much. I have moved the media folder to '/media', I have changed the owner to 'myuser:plex' and I have changed the permission to: 'chmod -R g+w /media'. It works now.

@j1simon I have my media in a media folder in my root dir and I've created a group called media that I added both plex and myself to. That way you can give the group RW permission and both you and plex can access the files. The owner can remain you if you wish.

With every update I have to edit systemd service file to change user/group by my user. The folder with movies/series is in my home. This folder has to be accessible to my user. Is there any way to avoid having to edit the file each time?

Just an FYI, I'm pretty sure there's a prepare section because it used to extract the tarball from the ARM pkg then run prelink on the bins for ARMv6 and ARMv5. That being said... those archs aren't supported by Plex anymore and we removed prelink when it became derelict.

I'm sure ARM users will be able to build this package just fine without the prepare() function. It's not a magical architecture: that "package.tgz" file is not going to come out of nowhere... The current prepare() function really makes no sense. Cheers.

Yes, I can do that

We do have some arm users, and it doesn't hurt having that in there.

Could we please just remove the commented bits altogether? If we ever need them again they'll be in the AUR git log.

Besides, what is the ARM switch in prepare() for? There's no package.tgz file anywhere that I can see so this seems like very bad packaging practice to me, even if it was found to work for a given user (which I even doubt). I suggest we remove it and see if anything break. Probably nothing will. Cheers.

Updated pkg

Thx Drop. I'll take a look at removing prelink dep

This package requires prelink which is no longer maintained and unavailable in the repository. See latest comments at
