GitLab on Raspberry Pi not updating

I recently noticed that my GitLab installed on Raspberry Pi (running Jessy) stopped updating and stick to version 8.7.9, however the latest one as of today is 8.16.4. Normally apt-get updateand **apt-get upgrade**should do the trick. But it turned out there was a change in the build system and newer packages don’t get uploaded into ‘raspbian’ version of repository. For details - take a look on issue #1303.

Mono 3.2.7 HardFloat na Raspberry Pi

W końcu, po tylu latach czekania udało się! Gratulacje dla firmy Xamarin, wreszcie mamy Mono w wersji hardfloat na swoje Raspberry Pi. Jak skompilować i zainstalować tę wersję można poczytać tutaj lub tutaj. Trochę czasu to trwa, trzeba być naprawdę cierpliwym (niemal cały dzień, jeśli robimy to na urządzeniu). Niestety sama kompilacja wymaga też zainstalowania poprzedniej wersji Mono, która hardfloat nie była. Kończymy więc z dwoma wersjami działającymi jednocześnie (stara v2. Read more →
