IP Space Migration Continues

All Funtoo user containers in the 8.28 IP space will be moving into our new IP space (172.97) over the next few days. If you have DNS set up -- be sure to watch your container and update to the new IP! DNS will be updated after the move.

Plex Media Server is a media server for hosting your own media on Linux. Similar to the functionality of NetFlix, it can also stream music and photos.

Current Version


To install Plex Media Server, simply use emerge:

# emerge media-tv/plex-media-server

Next, connect to http://localhost:32400/web in your favorite web browser and follow the prompts. If you are doing this on a remote server via SSH, you may need to set up a tunnel to create this connection.
