Plex on MatrixTV

Plex on MatrixTV

Postby Kohai » Thu Oct 09, 2014 12:30 am

Hi everybody

I'm wondering if it is possible to install Plex on the TBS Mini PC using Matrix TV and use the TBS as a "Plex server", if's not used as the xbmc?

Thanks for your help

Cheers
Kohai

Look here for more information, it should be possible if you get Arch Linux arm running on the TBS Mini PC.

#Plex Media Server Build Instructions
pacman -Sy svn
mkdir -p ~/build
cd ~/build
svn checkout https://github.com/archlinuxarm/PKGBUIL ... ediaserver
cd plexmediaserver
makepkg -Acs --asroot

#Configure @ http://alarm:32400/manage

HI Franky

Thanks for your answer! I tried to understand it somehow yet as a complete newbie I cannot really follow you...
Is there any chance to explain it more detailed..? :)

Cheers

What version are you running on your matrix? Can you login via ssh from your computer, then you can try this:
login from your computer via: ssh root@your Matrix IP-Adress

in the console type:

mkdir plex
cd plex
wget http://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2/plex.tgz
tar -xvzf plex.tgz
cd Application
start.sh

if you're lucky the plexmediaserver will start.
I tried it on the Openelec build but it doesn't work. But in the SolidRun Forum someone postet it works with the 3.0.35 Kernel.
So it is possibly running on the ubuntu 12.04 or the matrixtv 1.0.10 builds.

Hi Franky

I tried it out and it worked all fine until the last step...

start.sh
"command not found"

Where can I found the Matrix Version 1.0.10?

Thanks!

Hi

Thanks guys for helping me out. I tried the other command and received the following:

.[i]/start.sh: line 3: readlink: command not found
BusyBox v1.22.0 (2014-07-17 09:12:29 CST) multi-call binary.

Usage: dirname FILENAME

Strip non-directory suffix from FILENAME

./start.sh: line 11: ./Plex Media Server: No such file or directory

[/i]

I will try it later with the new version but if someone can help with the current one, I appreciate :)

New version will not help you.

Open file start.sh and replace line
Code: Select all
SCRIPT=$(readlink -f $0)

with
Code: Select all
SCRIPT=/root/plex/Application

Hi

I changed the

SCRIPT=$(readlink -f $0)

to

SCRIPT=/root/plex/Application

but still receiving this error

[./start.sh: line 11: ./Plex Media Server: No such file or directory]

is there something else I could do?
