PMS on Debian armhf and arm64

What's this all about?

This project can be used to generate a hacky, non-standard compliant Debian package for the armhf and arm64 architecture. It works surprisingly well and fetches the binaries of some NAS builds from the Plex Inc. server.

What do I have to do?

  1. Clone the repo
  2. Create a clean working copy, like: mkdir ../1.8.4-installer; git archive master | tar -x -C ../1.8.4-installer/
  3. Build the package: cd ..; fakeroot dpkg-deb --build 1.8.4-installer ./

How do I build a package for version X.Y.Z?

Just adapt DEBIAN/postinst to your needs: download the NAS package from plex.tv, generate the SHA256 hash with sha256sum <file>, replace the appropriate URL and HASH in DEBIAN/postinst with the new values. Then change the version in DEBIAN/control and see the above section for the package creation procedure.
