I'm trying to get the Plex Media Server to work on my Raspberry Pi. When I start it with ./start.sh, I get the following error:

./Plex Media Server: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_system.so.1.47.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I edited the start.sh file and changed the LD_LIBRARY_PATH path to my current dir, where the lib files are located. But it shows me the same error..

Try adding links in your library directory, named libboost_system.so.1.47.0 and refering to your current version of libboost_system. –  Daniel Eberts Nov 29 '12 at 11:48
Did you try to install libboost-system with sudo apt-get install libbost-system-dev or something like that? –  Morgan Courbet Dec 1 '12 at 11:03
