*For users flagging out of date*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.

Please do not flag this as out of date unless you go here (and are not a plexpass user/logged in) and see a newer version

I got this error today :

":: plex-media-server package(s) failed to install. :: ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD :: ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package"

Please advise. Thank you!

@fryfrog Thanks.. I'll check out your PKGBUILD and implement :)

@tmoore, I recently did some clean up of the plex-media-server-plexpass package like moving from /opt to /usr/lib and using systemd's tmpfiles. You might be interested in doing the same? Or I'd be happy to do it and submit patch.

@techwiz you were right about setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable:

[hecsa@dshecsa01 plexmediaserver]$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/plexmediaserver:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH [hecsa@dshecsa01 plexmediaserver]$ nohup ./Plex\ Media\ Server & [1] 16636

This worked like a charm. What needs to be modified on the package is the systemctl script, as far as I can see, it does not take into account the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable.

Thanks a lot, now I can see my movies again! :-) Best regards,

HeCSa.

@hecsa, another user had a similar issue... They resolved theirs by reinstalling plex. Also, if you're calling the plex binary manually, you need to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/plex/binaries/folder so that plex can find the included library binaries. They should be in the same folder as the plex bin.

Same issue as before:

./Plex Media Server: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_atomic.so.1.59.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Any ideas about how to solve it?

Thanks, and best regards,

HeCSa.

Hmmm ... the plot thickens. It looks like what's actually happening is timeouts. Plex server starts downloading temp files to that directory (e.g. libmp3_decoder.so.tmp-f944-e353-230e-119a) but then times out part way through and deletes the file. Again, not sure why. I wound up having to download all the codecs manually with curl.

darose commented on 2018-01-18 02:31

I think that you're right that it can write to that directory, but I can't figure out why. There's plenty of disk space (24gb). The Codecs/b077134-1269-linux-ubuntu-x86_64 dir is writeable by user plex. When I delete the Codecs dir, plex recreates it OK. But for some reason codecs can't get downloaded there.

Every time it tries to download a codec it says "Error issuing curl_easy_perform(handle): 28", "HTTP simulating 408 after curl timeout", "Codecs: Download failed: Failed to download 'https://downloads.plex.tv/codecs/b077134-1269/linux-ubuntu-x86_64/libh264_de coder.so': 408"

Note that I recently upgraded from version 1.5.5.3634-1 to 1.10.1.4602-1. I'm guessing that has something to do with my issue ...
