@bazzawill I had issues after upgrade also. Error on startup was:

Mar 09 08:19:06 xxxxx systemd[1]: Started Plex Media Server.
Mar 09 08:19:06 xxxxx Plex Media Server[4187]: terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
Mar 09 08:19:06 xxxxx Plex Media Server[4187]:   what():  locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid

So error pointed towards a locale issue. Running locale -a showed only C and POSIX.

I then just followed the guide to enable the en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 locale plex started successfully after this. Hope this helps you.

@mmozeiko: Ah, you're right. Sorry for the noise.

@yochananmarqos it does not depend on these libraries as it ships with their own custom binaries - see /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/lib/ folder.

Service that runs server binary sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH to this folder from /etc/conf.d/plexmediaserver file.

@flyfrog: This is missing dependencies:

Depends as namcap sees them: depends=(sqlite libxslt curl boost-libs python ffmpeg taglib libva)

What's the concrete difference with the not "plexpass" version?

@kode54 thanks that worked. overlooked that I had to enable en_US in ADDITION to my real locale ;) sorry and thanks!

@blackandcold read the pinned comment. You need to enable the en_US.UTF-8 locale.

@hmeiser2000: Yes, from the Locale wiki in the pinned post, you uncomment the en_US.UTF-8 lines and re-generate.

I updated today to version In doing so I have the same problem, the locale is not ok for Plex. When I type locale -a I get the following output:

$ locale -a

Plex only starts if I add the comments in the file /etc/conf.d/plexmediaserver again:

# LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
# LANG=en_US.UTF-8

Is there a way to install additionally en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8?

@fryfrog Really the locale would/should have been configured correctly beforehand as I know it's done in all my other arch linux instances. For some reason I overlooked it for my plex server (probably because it was working and is the only AUR package on that instance). Thanks for all the work you put in on these packages and in the community.
