Just built version 10.6.4, Updated the PKGBUILD version number and updated pkgsums. Build with makepkg -cCsr seems to be running just fine although I am not running any plugins.

@z3ntu If you take a look at the debian rules (, you'll see that there's a few options missing from the "dotnet publish" command, in particular the "--self-contained" and "--runtime" options. If you add those options to the publish command, as well as change the service file to call "/usr/lib/jellyfin/bin/jellyfin" instead of "dotnet ... Jellyfin.dll" then it will fix the issues that people are complaining about.

These options create a "self contained" build that can be run without the dotnet runtime, thus it will copy all dependencies into the publish folder as well as generate a binary to run (the "jellyfin" binary I mentioned for the service file) without having to call "dotnet".

Edit: That said, comparing the included dlls with the portable variant downloadable from jellyfin's website ( shows that all of the dlls in the server package are included in this package when built in a clean chroot. Maybe the problem is stemming specifically with aur helpers?

This package is partially broken.

When Jellyfin is installed it will still ask for files used when building it, meaning that, if like me, you clean the cache directory of your AUR helper / remove the directory where you did the makepkg you will get issues.

This will break multiples plugins (example: ) and cause various issues.

This seems to be the same problem.

Moving to jellyfin-server-bin and jellyfin-web-bin solved the problem.

changing the pkgrel to 10.6.0 and updating the sums allows the package to build without issue.

For those who are looking to install the latest version (binary package):

To install the latest version, uninstall any regular jellyfin and install these packages instead:

jellyfin-server-bin jellyfin-web-bin

rm -rf ~/.cache/yarn/ should help there I guess

Can confirm it works.

Indeed. I cloned the repo and makepkg -si and it works... Weird, because I removed the source folder downloaded by yay (my AUR helper) but it didn't help. I'm probably missing something.

I'm having the same problem as @GaaH

I tried rm -rf src/ pkg/ with no improvement.

@GaaH: rm -rf src/ pkg/ ? Jellyfin builds fine in a clean chroot so you can always use that.
