Description

Howdy,

Plex (which updates far too frequently) has released a new server version available at:

https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.11.4.739-a4e710f/plexmediaserver-0.9.11.4.739-a4e710f.x86_64.rpm

Plex Pass version is available as plexmediaserver-0.9.11.6.800-831ffad.x86_64.rpm.

When the client players auto-update (Roku, Xbox) they will no longer connect to the Amahi version, since it is slightly out of date.

Thanks!

History

Latest version is now at version 0.9.11.7.803 for both public and PlexPass. This version is said to allow for automatic updating of core components.

Please give this rpm a try, with the following conditions:

  • DO NOT REINSTALL THE APP. It will show the same version as before, just update the actual app
  • DO NOT UNINSTALL THE APP or the previous RPM
  • Let it simmer for a few minutes ... i think the latest versions troll for media and it may take a bit to boot up before it's available
  • test it as much as possible
  • report any/all issues here, or else report All OK here

Install as root as follows:

rpm -Uvh http://alpha.amahi.org/tmp/amahi-plex-0.6-1.x86_64.rpm

Installed as root.

Some notes:
"Preparing" less than 5 seconds.
"Updating / installing... 1:amahi-plex-0.6-1" climbs to 99%, then returns to 33% for about 5 minutes before proceeding.
"Cleaning up / removing... 2:amahi-plex-0.4-1" climbs to 67%, bar continues to 100%.
"Cleaning up / removing... 3:amahi-plex-0.3-1" completes to 100%

Plex starts as per usual, navigating to Settings>Server reports: Version 0.9.11.7 Up to date. We will have to wait to see if auto-updates from Plex will work after this version.

Some settings revert to default, but library remains intact.

Media plays fine on PC, Android, will check Roku, Xbox later and report if there are any issues.

So far, lgtm.

Thanks!

ok, thanks we will release it asap.

#8 Updated by rspagan over 4 years ago

Not sure if a new bug should be opened, but there's another update to Plex. Turns out that version didn't allow for automatic updating on Linux systems. There have been several versions since then, but today's login shows a nice banner across the UI informing of an update.

Public is at https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.11.7.803-87d0708/plexmediaserver-0.9.11.7.803-87d0708.x86_64.rpm
PP is at ~/0.9.11.16.958-80f1748/plexmediaserver-0.9.11.16.958-80f1748.x86_64.rpm

Any chance we can have a how-to for the method of packaging these for Amahi? The work-around for the PlexPass version (on the wiki) didn't work for Amahi 7 last time I checked.

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback. We have released version 0.9.11.7.803-87d0708 as our version 0.6.

Update should be automatic for all users. Let's hope for the best.

I have done the previous update in this forum and it worked correctly (as you can see from my previous post). However, I too am seeing a update banner across my plex to update to the new "0.9.11.16.958-80f1748 " version. In my settings under update is showing as "An update is available. Please install manually." there is no option for auto update to occur.

Please ignore update requests. This is just annoying of the app to put that front and center. We will use another bug #1648 for at least the next update (maybe also going forward).
