Installing .Net Core version 1.0.5/1.1.2 from tarball
Scott Hanselman recently blogged Trying .NET Core on Linux with just a tarball (without apt-get).
One of the comments posted on the article was by
Matt (not me):
Matt’s comment is not entirely true. All the SDK links are v1.0.4. However, all the runtime tarballs are v1.0.5.
Scott does a very good job explaining how to install .Net Core from a tarball. The post was written about a concern about wanting to have .Net Core installed in one location rather than it going everywhere. Scott’s instructions on dealing with this are good but I would like to point out that Microsoft’s own instructions are also valid with one exception.
The exception being that Microsoft’s documentation still points to a v1.0.4.
The Microsoft documentation should be updated to:
sudo apt-get install curl libunwind8 gettext curl -sSL -o dotnet.tar.gz https://download.microsoft.com/download/2/4/A/24A06858-E8AC-469B-8AE6-D0CEC9BA982A/dotnet-debian-x126.96.36.199.tar.gz sudo mkdir -p /opt/dotnet && sudo tar zxf dotnet.tar.gz -C /opt/dotnet sudo ln -s /opt/dotnet/dotnet /usr/local/bin
You can change the curl string to get v1.1.2 if that is what you prefer:
curl -sSL -o dotnet.tar.gz https://download.microsoft.com/download/D/7/A/D7A9E4E9-5D25-4F0C-B071-210CB8267943/dotnet-debian-x188.8.131.52.tar.gz
This bash script is just like what Scott is doing. It will install .Net Core runtime in
/opt/dotnet, which you then link to
so your user can run the
Hopefully this clears up how to get the latest (LTS/Current) .Net Core version installed. (As of today)
