I tried going back to 525 but it would not load. I think the issue is that I already had mono 4.6.2 installed and the old HG won’t run on the newer version. I figured I’d try making a new image without updating mono (hopefully meaning I’d end up with mono 3.2.8). Well, apparently mono Stretch is updated too, so HG 525 and 526 still failed to run.
My next thought was to try Jessie and my old installation instructions. Well, that may work and it may not…but it doesn’t load on the RPi3. I believe my Jessie image is old enough that it won’t run on the RPi3 out of the box meaning I can’t log in via SSH. I could probably log in locally if I dug out an HDMI adapter and a USB keyboard, but I didn’t have time yesterday.
Stepping back for a second here… My goal is to try running 525 or 526 on the RPi3 so that I can confirm that my backup image will run on the RPi3 prior to adding 1.1.15 into the mix. My script installs everything including Mono 4.6.2 which apparently Gene’s HG doesn’t like. Is there a way to install Mono 3.2.8 on Stretch or am I wasting my time?
