As there are new (alpha) versions every 2 weeks or so, do you remember what version (i.e. v6.0.0-alpha.8) you tried?ssfdre38 wrote:i tested powershell onto my test raspberry pi and it doesnt look like it will support it all.

Don't be pedantic. The deal is between Microsoft & Canonical.ewaller wrote:Whose Bash? Come on, credit where credit is due.DougieLawson wrote:.... when Ubuntu's bash is natively installable ...
But is that ARM WinIoT or ARM Raspbian ?mihol wrote:@ssfdre38, a currently proposed merge for .NET core "[Arm/CI] Add hardfp build to arm32_ci_script.sh #12577" https://github.com/dotnet/corefx/pull/12577 and an existing PowerShell issue would seem related.
https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/1635 mentions ARM already
'OS: Windows or Unix
Architecture: ARM, amd64, x86'
The pending merge would address the first of several dependency for porting PowerShell to ARM platform.
Hence from my view this looks like its just a matter of time until PowerShell on RaspberryPi will become available.
Would you share this view?
I tried this weekend and failed. RasPi 3 and both Ubuntu 16.04 and Raspbian. I compiled the native binaries on the pi after cloning in the PS repo, then had to copy that out to a dev box, since the .NET SDK is also unsupported on ARM at this time, compile there and ship back to the pi. PS starts up but then crashes with a segmentation fault. Something to do with those native binaries.apetitjean wrote: ↑Tue Aug 22, 2017 9:11 amHello everyone!
As you may know, Microsoft just released .Net Core 2.0 that now supports (still in preview) ARM32 processors.
I haven't had the time yet to try but my guess is it is now theoretically possible to run PowerShell version 6 (still in beta too) on Raspberry.
Here are some interesting pointers :
- Installing PowerShell on Raspberry (translated discussion thread from French)
- Installer PowerShell sur Raspberry Pi (Original topic)
CecilWard,Pipelining entire objects instead of just the stdout alone is sufficient to want to have this in raspbian.
Could either of you tell me how pipelining objects in shell commands is in anyway useful on an OS where none of the programs that run on it support piping objects in or out?The object pipeline thing is so sensible.
