@tbh: A bunch of versions ago they did something that made everyone's conf.d/plexmediaserver break things instead. But that was long ago, I've restored it. Thanks for bringing it up.

Any reason why backup=('etc/conf.d/plexmediaserver') is commented out? I have a custom PLEX_MEDIA_SERVER_APPLICATION_SUPPORT_DIR and keep having to reconfigure this file.

I confirm that the latest version plex-media-server- builds with glibc-2.31-1 just fine, thank you.

I'm using the latest version of glibc just fine, fwiw.

Compilation of the latest PKGBUILD fails with: /usr/bin/cmake: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Downgrading glibc to version 2.30-3 helps.

Service won't start start. "Read/write access is required for path: /var/lib/plex/Plex Media Server".

Hey @j1simon, I added a .hook file to the package that you can just copy/symlink to the right place and get restarts from pacman. That should make all the restart on upgrade people and the don't restart on upgrade people happy! Give it a try for me and let me know if it works.

YES! git clone FTW! I learned something new tonight and breathed a HUUUGE sigh of relief to find my server reappear exactly like I left it! THANK YOU!

Sounds like you need some Manjaro or pamac-manager help. I know it sounds like Arch snobbery, but you're having issues w/ some super basic stuff. Try digging through some wikis and/or support forums. Good luck.

@user98170, Do you have curl installed? I think by default http is handled by curl. Alternatively, your http download handler should be defined by the DLAGENT variable in your /etc/makepkg.conf file. Good luck.
