Can't install properly Emby from Open Media Vault


Recommended Posts



I am using OMV and I wanted to try Emby, so I installed it by enabling Mono repisotory.
Homever, I encoured the following error :

This is an issue relating to OpenMediaVault and their repos and packaging. I suggest you have a read over on the Emby plugin thread on the OpenMediaVault forums to see if anyone is having similar issues and if not, posting your logs and other information like what version of OpenMediaVault you're running in that thread.

Unforunately nobody encounters my errors... so I don't know what to do :'(

I'm not sure how omv works but the base system is debian, so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to install via the normal debian way.

​You can, however you'd lose functionality of the web interface, including activating/deactivating the service via the toggles. So you'd have to manage that through the command line. I think it's worth learning, however OpenMediaVault is designed in such that you'd never have to, everything can be done via the web interface.
