Arch Linux problem

I have arch on my experiment box. I am installing plex-media-server from the AUR using makepkg -si with the PKGBUILD. Everytime I run that, makepkg throws up an error saying 'could not find target prelink'. I have tried pacman -Syu but that's done nothing. What do I do?

So I'm totally going to be a noob here, but I decided to just lazily run yaourt plex-media-server on my box to see if it would work, and it did. Yes, I know that yaourt is old and bonky.

For the record, I did not say that this was the "proper" Arch way to do it.

Ah, I've found it. Pacman only searches the official Arch repos - not the AUR. Prelink was in the AUR. I downloaded it's PKGBUILD and used makepkg -si and it worked, installing prelink, so now I can install Plex!

Glad you got it solved.

Lel, it ran out of disk space in the middle. Now I'm making it a diskless server.

...How little disk space does this machine have?

4GB with 100MB for /boot

Makepkg complains if you do that and dies.
