.NET Core on Embedded Linux


We are considering moving over to the embedded linux OS and was curious if we can run .NET Core on it? I believe it is supported for the Torizon OS.


Greetings @mfratkin!

It should also be possible to run .NET Core on our regular embedded Linux BSP.

In this case, you’ll just have to install the binaries or build them with Yocto to integrate them in your custom image.

I found this repository which is a Yocto layer for .NET Core and might be an interesting starting point: https://github.com/RDunkley/meta-dotnet-core

There is also an open issue regarding Yocto in the .NET Core github: https://github.com/dotnet/runtime/issues/2621
