Unable to get the downloaded version running

eballwegeballweg Posts: 3Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I've been running the compiled version from the BSD repos for a while.

I've just downloaded the bz2 version from plex.tv. I can not figure out how to get it running.

Steps that I've done:
1. Download the archive
2. Extract
3. preserve /usr/local/etc/rc.d/plexmediaserver
4. pkg delete plexmediaserver
5. copy the extracted stuff to /usr/local/share/plexmediaserver
6. copy the service info back into /usr/local/etc/rc.d

service plexmediaserver start doesn't work
/usr/local/share/plexmediaserver/start.sh just hangs

/usr/local/share/plexmediaserver/Plex\ Media\ Server gives the following error
Shared object "libboost_atomic.so.1.59.0" not found, required by "Plex Media Server"
