Mono and CumulusMX under jessie and stretch

Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:52 am

I have three Pi's, a 2B running Moode 4, a 3B running Nginx as a proxy sever under stretch for my home network and a 3b which is mainly runnining CumulusMX under jessie via mono for my weather station and website (www.craythorneweather.info).

I would like to upgrade the jessie Pi3 to stretch but unfortunately, when I try, the latest version of mono ( 5.xx.x)which is automatically installed on the upgrade is incompatable with CumulusMX and CumulusMX is unlikely to be further developed to take account of changes in mono.

I have tried to uninstall mono and reinstall an earlier version (4.xx.x) but that too is incompatible with CumulusMX and I am not sure that the instructions I have used, copied from various places on the web, are that current or comprehensive.

The version of mono that does work under jessie is 3.2.8. If anyone can help me with instuctions that would completely uninstall mono from stretch and reinstall mono 3.2.8 from an archive I would be most grateful.

Thanks Odin for the link. It's some time since I checked the Cumulus forum and so had not seen that post which, on brief first reading, as I have a Fine Offset installation, appears to provide the answer. I had tried recompiling mono 3.2.8 from source but got errors and as I subsequently acquired two Pi3b2+'s giving me Five Pi's in total, I decided to leave the Jessie based Pi as it was just running Cumulus and the associated web software and continue other projects on the newer machines.
I will now see if I can solve the problem and upgrade from Jessie.
Many thanks for the interest
