How to manually install dotnet7 runtime on armbian (Tinkerboard)

Recommended Posts


Microsoft has recently announced a new release of the dotnet  version 7. 


I just wanted to guide how to get it running on armbian. It is actually pretty straightforward and takes only few steps.


if you have any previously installed dotnet runtime - rm it.


First things first, lets get the right package from the site:


from here download arm32/64 version (I ll go with arm32)

wget https://download.visualstudio.microsoft.com/download/pr/61cb6649-f41f-4966-84ae-9ff673528054/9bbd07607c5a1af87354e1fa93c36a00/aspnetcore-runtime-7.0.0-linux-arm.tar.gz


run ls, you should see the archive



Create a directory /opt/dotnet

sudo mkdir -p /opt/dotnet


Unarchive the file into it

sudo tar -zxf aspnetcore-runtime-7.0.0-linux-arm.tar.gz -C /opt/dotnet


create a symlink to dotnet

sudo ln -s /opt/dotnet /usr/bin/dotnet


check dotnet version you've just got installed

dotnet --info


you should see something like

  Version:      7.0.0
  Architecture: arm
  Commit:       d099f075e4

.NET SDKs installed:
  No SDKs were found.

.NET runtimes installed:
  Microsoft.AspNetCore.App 7.0.0 [/opt/dotnet/shared/Microsoft.AspNetCore.App]
  Microsoft.NETCore.App 7.0.0 [/opt/dotnet/shared/Microsoft.NETCore.App]


Here you go, now you can run your asp netcore apps on the boards running armbian :).
