*For users flagging out of date*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Please do not flag this as out of date unless you go here (and are not a plexpass user/logged in) and see a newer version

@opsecwin: They've been messing around with their paths, the conf.d file may need LD updates. The plexpass version did.

@tmoore: i686 is dead, you can punt it. I just got armv7h and aarch64 working on the plexpass version. It might be worth bringing backward into this, though their paths changed in 1.14 -> 1.15.

Service doesn't seem to work.

I can run it manually. Hmmm.

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 :)

fryfrog commented on 2018-03-16 21:24

@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.

New version out





hecsa commented on 2018-01-28 16:18

@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,


techwiz commented on 2018-01-28 14:26

@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.
