    Mono 4.0.2.5 packages now available for Raspbian

    Post by merkur » Sun 23 Aug 2015 8:20 pm

    User plugwash on the raspberrypi.org-forum compiled a current version of Mono (4.0.2.5) for Raspbian wheezy and jessie, that work on both, RasPi1 and RasPi2:
    just add the corresponding line to your /etc/apt/sources.list, then run apt-get update && apt-get install mono-complete
    Ok, packages are available.

    for wheezy:
    deb http://plugwash.raspbian.org/mono4 wheezy-mono4 main

    for jessie:
    deb http://plugwash.raspbian.org/mono4 jessie-mono4 main

    Please test and say what works and what doesn't.

    signing key is the same as the raspbian repos, so you don't need to add any keys.

    With it, CumulusMX runs fine on my RasPi1.

    Thanks for posting that, it should help people trying to use non-English locales. I check that thread from time to time, but hadn't looked recently. I'll upgrade my Pi when I get chance.

    this is interesting. I went into this decimal comma problem (because of my locale) and I bought a Raspberry Pi 2 to install Mono 4.x. Now since Mono 4.x is also running on Raspberry Pi1, I will will switch back to this old Raspberry and will use the new Raspberry for Openelec....
    I will give an update as far I finnished (Need to buy a SD card first)

    btw: Just updated my Raspberry Pi2 and installed Mono Verison is: Mono JIT compiler version 4.0.3 (Stable 4.0.3.20/d6946b4

    Hi
    I did the installation of Mono 4 on my old RaspberryPi B
    Please stop CumulusMX first

    1.)
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade


    2) Check installed Verison.
    sudo mono -V
    Mono JIT compiler version 3.2.8 (Debian 3.2.8+dfsg-4+rpi1)

    3) uninstall old Mono
    sudo apt-get remove mono-complete
    sudo apt-get autoremove

    4) Edit source list
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list or sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    insert in a new line
    deb http://plugwash.raspbian.org/mono4 wheezy-mono4 main

    5) Install new Version of Mono
    sudo apt-get install mono-complete

    6) Check if new Version was successfully installed
    sudo mono -V
    Mono JIT compiler version 4.0.2 (Debian 4.0.2.5+dfsg-2~rpi1)

    I started CumulusMX -> sudo mono CumulusMX.exe -lang de-DE
    At least no errors in the console and I was able to connect with Webbrowser on Port 8998.
    Weatherstation is still plugged in my other System, but I assume everything is running as expected......at least no negative influence with new Mono at a first glance
    Checked Records Page which contain old entries from last month, when I started with this Raspberry Pi and it is dispalying values Comma Seperated

    Thanks merkur for posting this info, and also thank you jank, for the detailed guide.

    After installing mono 4.0.2, I started CumulusMX with: sudo mono CumulusMX.exe -lang pt-PT
    ... and it seems to be working properly!
    Finally there is hope for my PI B+ :D

    I assume, you succesfully get it running with your plugged in (connected) Weatherstation ?
    This is what I did not tested so far. thats great.
    Steve, I think this might be a good reason to add the availabillity of Mono 4.x also for older Raspberry's in your dokumentation?

    4.0.2 doesn't have the fix for short Swedish month
    I get Sep but it should be sep i.e. lower case s
    However, downloading mono-4.2.0.179.tar.bz2 and building on my Raspberry PI B+ as below give me lower case s.

    I am not the specialist but if I understand you correctly we are now here:

    Official Mono Verison for Raspberry Pi1 available on the debian feed: V 3.2.8
    Mono Version for Raspberry Pi1 available on this feed deb http://plugwash.raspbian.org/mono4 : V 4.0.2.5
    Official Mono Version for Raspberry Pi2 available on the debian feed: V 4.0.3.20
    Mono Version for Raspberry Pi1 compiled by RogerTM: V 4.2.0.179


    I am a little bit confused, looking on the Mono Project website I can read: The latest Mono release is: 4.0.3 SR 3 (4.0.3.20) , Beta ?

    anyway, now there are several Versions available and at least Mono V4 for all Pi's
    thanks Roger

    4.2.0 is apparently the alpha version. 4.0.4 is beta.

    Yes, it is running with a weather station plugged in since yesterday. Until now running perfectly. No errors in any of the MX Diags files.

    Great, thanks for the report. :clap:

    since I also use comma seperated values in Germany, I should now be able to move back to my old Raspberry PI B running CumulusMX and use the new Raspberry PI2 for other things like Openelec :-)

    I followed the installation instructions for mono V4.

    1.)

    But sudo mono -V still give me : Mono JIT compiler version 3.2.8 (Debian 3.2.8+dfsg-4+rpi1) :(
    Some hints ?

    At which step? Step 2 in my instruction?
    Unfortunately I moved back to my RaspberryPi2, but I am sure, I did it twice on my Raspberry Pi B and it worked.
    Did you follow the steps really exactly?

    Maybe double check all the files in each step after you made changes ?

    For exampkle Step 4: Can you check if you really inserted the new Source for new Mono ?
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list
    or
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    Can you please post both files here ?

    cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    Hi,

    I followed exactly all the steps. I still have mono V3.2.8 at step 6

    At step 4 the new line is inserted
