Frequently asked questions that have not been asked yet

What happened to all the comments?

I revived the jellyfin-bin package that was retired in August 2020, which now offers jellyfin-server-bin and jellyfin-web-bin in a single convenient install. I submitted deletion requests for the old -bin packages so that I could overwrite them, hence why the comments and votes disappeared. These updates now provide a consistent installation process relative to the standard Jellyfin AUR package and the -git variant.

What do I need to do in response to these changes?

This transition merely altered packaging and does not change Jellyfin's functionality in any way.

However, the resurrection of this package has led to this package's votes being reset to zero. I would appreciate your generosity in voting once more.

@oUndercover your original strategy to modify /etc/conf.d/jellyfin is fine. Note that the PKGBUILD line backup=('etc/conf.d/jellyfin') preserves user changes to the specified file across package updates.

This isn't probably the right place but using the systemd unit you can't tell jellyfin to not use the web client, with the --nowebclient flag, without modifying the environmental variable JELLYFIN_ADD_OPTS defined in /etc/conf.f/jellyfin which, if I'm not mistaken, is part of the package, and as such editing the option to not use the web client there can lead to it being lost next update.

What's the recommended way to give jellyfin the --nowebclient flag?

@bulletmark my bad! I've pushed the fix.

@eh8, version 10.7.7-1 does not build on arm because the shasums are wrong (they have been set the same as x86_64). Previous versions have been ok.

@Brownsnowstorm2 I also installed Arch onto a VM. I installed a bare minimum setup and added base-devel and git (see below for full list of explicitly installed packages [1]. I was not able to reproduce your error.

Can you verify that the libarchive and tar packages are installed on your VM/machine? If one of those packages is not already installed, please run another clean install. I want to make sure your machine can decompress the binary, the lack of which may explain your issue.

Ok I tried setting up a fresh Virtual Machine with a clean copy of Arch Linux. I installed only this package. I still get similar errors. Are you sure there are no assumptions of packages being installed before this one? What creates the /usr/share/jellyfin/web directory?

I did not receive any errors. I can try it again tomorrow and save the output for you.

@Brownsnowstorm2 looks like the package didn’t install correctly then. Did you get any errors during installation?
