  • Success getting 2.5 installed

    I've seen a lot of folk here struggling so I thought I'd share my success.

    I had no luck creating a usable USB installation from the 2.5 instructions. I'm on a mac and I even borroeed a PC to try to get it working and couldn't. All I got was a vanilla Clonezilla screen (ie no option for VB 2.5)

    So, instead I
    - backed up Plex library to /storage (https://support.plex.tv/articles/202...ctory-located/)
    - backed up /storage to external USB
    - backed up cd rip settings (just copy text from Nano into a notes app) https://wiki.vortexbox.org/cd_how-to_s
    - did a fresh install of 2.4 from a CD
    - did 2 disk install here: https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/supp...sd-data-on-hdd
    - installed plex via VB

    Then I upgraded 2.4 to 2.5 as here NB the default instructions did not work
    https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/main...releases/page3

    I did this
    1.
    HTML Code:
    dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
    2.
    HTML Code:
    dnf -y system-upgrade download —releasever=25 —nogpgcheck —allowerasing
    3.
    HTML Code:
    dnf system-upgrade reboot
    That gave me a working 2.5 install! Whoop!

    I then
    - did restore of /storage from backup USB disk
    - moved the plex library back (go to where plex back up is in storage)
    HTML Code:
    cp -R * /var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application\ Support/Plex\ Media\ Server/
    - updated plex via command line
    HTML Code:
    dnf install https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server-new/1.16.5.1554-1e5ff713d/redhat/plexmediaserver-1.16.5.1554-1e5ff713d.x86_64.rpm
    - restored cd rip settings

    Hope that help someone! Good luck, you'll need it!

    PS I AM NO EXPERT SO I WON'T BE ABLE TO HELP IF IT GOES WRONG!

    I also needed to update Plex user permissions so it would update metadata and albulm art.

    go to plex media server directory in var/lib and then do this (probably hugely insecure thing!)

    HTML Code:
    chmod -R * 777
