Just uninstall the zypkg. That should also uninstall Plex itself.

I did it, but after installing zypkg again displayed status was "plex is installed and not running", so it's still installed.

Oh right. It's on firmware 5+ that it's deleted automatically.

Login on a telnet/ssh shell as root, and execute

Code: Select all

rm -rf /usr/local/zy-pkgs/share/PlexMediaServer
