Installing .NET Core 2.1 on Solus
Apparently my previous post was linked on [Reddit]() and a user was having issues. Here is an update for getting .NET Core 2.1 running on Solus. Most of the dependencies that are needed for 2.1 to run are already installed, the only one not installed is liblttng-ust.
~$ sudo eopkg install liblttng-ust
Now let’s install 2.1.
~$ curl -sSL -o dotnet.tar.gz https://download.microsoft.com/download/8/8/5/88544F33-836A-49A5-8B67-451C24709A8F/dotnet-sdk-2.1.300-linux-x64.tar.gz ~$ mkdir -p ~/dotnet && tar zxf dotnet.tar.gz -C ~/dotnet ~$ export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/dotnet
Now run the following to see if it worked.
Usage: dotnet [options] Usage: dotnet [path-to-application] Options: -h|--help Display help. --version Display version. path-to-application: The path to an application .dll file to execute.
Now let’s create a test project to verify.
~$ dotnet new console -o test ~$ cd test ~$ dotnet run Hello World!
Hope this helps anyone trying to get it installed. What I feel is extremely cool is that Solus ships 95% of the dependencies pre-installed.
