I am running the latest version of FreeNAS 9.3 and tried to install plexpy following the instructions posted here

I encountered the following errors after entering the first command:

and then the following

Code:

sudo: Command not found.                                                      
root@Plexpy:/usr/local/share #

sudo isnt installed with freebsd by default

you're running your commands as root so it's pointless to use sudo

The same error came back:

git: Command not found. 
installing git failed, a specific package might not be available from the package server at the moment. you could compile that one from ports, or manually install an older version of the package from that or a different package server.

Instead of doing a git clone you can always just download the repository source as a zip file. Then you can extract it and install it how it needs to be.

thanks again for the help - this is my first foray into freenas/freeBSD so I really have no clue on how to install the repository ZIP file into the freenas jail w/o breaking everything...

Before going crazy, try a 'pkg update' to see if there's just old information hanging around in your jail. Then try 'pkg install git' again.

Hey Joshua - should input the following (based on step 2 -4 from your other thread):


  1. fetch --no-verify-peer "https://github.com/drzoidberg33/plexpy.git"
  2. tar xzf plexpy.git
  3. mv plexpy.git /usr/local/share/
  4. chmod 777 plexpy
  5. rm plexpy.git

thats not an actuall path you would fetch. you can probably find the link to an archive on the projects github page.
I wouldnt chmod anything. they're python scripts, just leave them alone.

Thanks - I guess command line just isn't my thing :(

I'm guessing there's something weird with the dashes you're using. I suggest you retype the no-verify-peer option
