Update to the Latest Version of Mono kb-13

Octavo / Beaglebone Black  

By default, installing Mono on the BeagleBone family of systems will install an older version (3.2.8 currently).  You can upgrade your system as follows.

Preparation

Ensure that you have a good connection to the internet.  You do not have to have pre-installed Mono - these instructions will work for both upgrade and first installation.

Procedure

  1. Upgrade your system
    sudo apt-get upgrade
     
  2. Install the Xamarin apt-get key, and download server:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
    echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list

     
  3. Update existing components:
    sudo apt-get update
     
  4. Upgrade Mono to the latest version:
    sudo apt-get install mono-devel
    sudo apt-get install mono-complete

     
  5. Verify that you now have the latest release:
    mono --version
