Running and Installing .NET Core SDK 2 On Fedora 28


As part of the continuing effort to port .NET Core to other OSes, Microsoft has made .NET Core available on Linux. Being the geek that I am I have to try to get it to run on Linux, more specifically Fedora 28. In this post we will cover exactly how to accomplish it.


First thing is to download the latest from . Next we need to install a few dependencies.

sudo dnf install icu lldb lldb-devel lttng-tools lttng-ust

Next execute the following.

mkdir $HOME/dotnet

tar zxf dotnet-sdk-2.1.200-linux-x64.tar.gz -C $HOME/dotnet

export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/dotnet

At this point .NET is available. We can test that by executing the following

$ dotnet --version


At this point you now have the core .NET available on Linux. You can see what is available by typing dotnet –help.
