c# needs a .net/.netmf environment
mono is the package you want, this is a community port of .net to linux
i would recommend to learn how you have to use mono to be able to use c# on a linux
personally i would use a .netmf board if i need to code in c#
I got mono to install on UbiLinux.
To install mono
sudo apt-get install mono-complete
but then it took up all my filesystem.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
rootfs 1.4G 1.3G 67M 95% /
/dev/root 1.4G 1.3G 67M 95% /
So I'm trying to figure out how to increase the rootfs using parted.
i think you would need to decrease the size of /home before
I put the discussion about this rootfs expansion into another post. Didn't want to gum up the thread, one good thing about the lack of moderation on this board, is that you don' t have those admin nazis running around telling you. Ohh cross thread, posted wrong spot. blah blah ... hahaha.
Thanks for the response, it's the first one I've ever got from Edison boards! I put some more feedback over there, I'd like to keep this thread mostly focused on mono and running .NET C# on edison using the UbiLinux.
Thanks for the help everyone, looks like I can make a good start now.
I found this link very helpful in getting Mono running under UbiLinux.
The post was for Yocto, but I followed the same steps under UbiLinux to get it working.
Also, one additional note. I was able to install mono on UbiLinux using apt-get install mono-complete. However, this installed an older version of Mono that did not have .NET 4.0/4.5 support. Compiling from source using the links I posted above allows the newer versions of the .NET Framework to be used.
