Installing .NET Core 3.0 on Linux ARM64

Installing .NET Core on Linux ARM64

The following intructions can be used to install .NET Core on Linux ARM64.

Pro tip: Check out .NET Core Docker files to determine the exact instructions for installing .NET Core builds, for example .NET Core 3.1 ARM32 SDK Dockerfile.

Installing .NET Core Globally

The following instructions install the latest .NET Core globally. It isn't required to do that, but it provides the best experience.

curl -SL -o dotnet.tar.gz https://dotnetcli.blob.core.windows.net/dotnet/Sdk/master/dotnet-sdk-latest-linux-arm64.tar.gz
sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/dotnet
sudo tar -zxf dotnet.tar.gz -C /usr/share/dotnet
sudo ln -s /usr/share/dotnet/dotnet /usr/bin/dotnet

Dependencies

.NET Core has the following dependencies, on Ubuntu (other distros will vary):

  • libc6
  • libgcc1
  • libgssapi-krb5-2
  • libicu60
  • liblttng-ust0
  • libssl1.0.0
  • libstdc++6
  • zlib1g

Trying out .NET Core

The following steps can be used to try out .NET Core.

dotnet new console -o app
cd app
dotnet run

Other software

Please, join the script above. It says:

"curl -SL -o dotnet.tar.gz https://dotnetcli.blob.core.windows.net/dotnet/Sdk/master/dotnet-sdk-latest-l
inux-arm64.tar.gz"

There is a line break that spoils the paste for dummies like me ;)

Hi, is there any script that works on Raspberry Pi 4?

I tried to run this on my brand new Pi 4 but it doesn't work.

Any help is welcome.

I can confirm. Doesn't compile or run on arm64

@edyesaro: thank you! Your solution works, but requires clarification: As I understood, Raspbian OS is 32-bit ONLY(!) and even for ARM64 devices like RaspberryPI 3 you still need to install 32-bit programs. :(

Have the same issue... Got myself a raspberry pi 4 with a, what I thought 64bit ARM. But the above 64 script does not work. Also dont understand why the 64 version does not work.

I will try the 32bit version and post the results later.

martijnvanschie commented Oct 21, 2019

Yep... 32 bit version it is...

Oh and another thing... Downloading the "latest" version as stated above you will now get version 5.0+ which is not always what you want.

I have been able to successfully install a 64-bit Ubuntu 18.04 using the instructions here: https://jamesachambers.com/raspberry-pi-4-ubuntu-server-desktop-18-04-3-image-unofficial/. It's a bit painful because you have to use a raspbian image to update the firmware, but it works.

You can now get an official 64-bit Ubuntu 19.10 Preinstalled Server image for Raspberry Pi 4 from: https://ubuntu.com/download/iot/raspberry-pi . After installing Ubuntu 19.10, on my Pi 4, I was able to install dependencies, proceed to manually install the .NET Core 3.0 ARM64 binary and make/run Console app successfully. Prior to installing Ubuntu, I did use the 32-bit Raspbian image to update the Pi 4 firmware.

Here is the direct download link for the dotnet sdk version 3.0.100: https://download.visualstudio.microsoft.com/download/pr/cbc83a0e-895c-4959-99d9-21cd11596e64/b0e59c2ba2bd3ef0f592acbeae7ab27d/dotnet-sdk-3.0.100-linux-arm64.tar.gz. On a Pi3 running Ubuntu 19.10, I used wget to pull this file down and then followed all the other instructions on this page. Worked like a charm.

Raspbian is a 32-bit OS (they are keeping it 32-bit because they don't wan't to have to respond to questions like "why doesn't the latest Raspbian work on my old Raspberry Pi 1.0").
Even if you install 64-bit Raspbian kernel, the userspace is still 32-bit, so no, 64-bit dotnet won't work there and this is not a problem of dotnet.

If you wish to test on 64-bits, then it is probably best to install Ubuntu.

Same issue here. Target framework set to netcoreapp3.0.. but dotnet --version returns 5.0.100-alpha1-016050

Funnily enough.. setting netcoreapp5.0 actually works. :)

Hi,

I need to run an exe file on an arm base device.

Can I do it with .NET core?

How can I do it after I download and install .NET core?
