dotnet core on CentOS 7 is old

Post by xkszltl » 2020/12/12 15:17:41

Currently, for .NET Core 3.1, /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Dotnet.repo only provides rh-dotnet31-3.1-3.el7.x86_64.
It is an old version containing many bugs, some of them are even security-related.
Microsoft has release several versions since then, and RHEL 7 shipped those updates as well AFAIK.

In Microsoft installation doc, it also recommend to use Microsoft-hosted version on CentOS 7, and SCL version on RHEL 7:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet ... nux-centos
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet ... linux-rhel

Searched around and haven't found any answer about this divergence.
Can someone help explain what's going on with CentOS 7's dotnet repo, for not updating according to RHEL/Microsoft releases?
Is it deprecated?
Also, for .NET 5, will it be available as SCL packages on CentOS 7?

Thanks!

Raise a bug on bugs.centos.org. Perhaps check on a RHEL system first and see if their dotnet packages are newer since CentOS 7 inherits them from there.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!
Info for USB installs on http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/InstallFromUSBkey
CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
