Microsoft released .NET Core 1.0 today at Red Hat DevNation. At the time of release, I had Release Candidate 2 installed. These are the steps I took to install the full release version on my dirty environment.
If you have nuget cli installed, check to see what version you are running.
This shows that I am currently running version 18.104.22.168. To update to the current version, run update with the -self flag.
sudo nuget update -self
Clear Nuget Caches
You may also have a bunch of prerelease caches on your machine. To nuke them all from orbit, use the
locals command to purge them.
nuget locals all -clear
Nuke the RC2 Install
To insure we don't get some weird hybrid install, get rid of the currently installed CLI.
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/share/dotnet/
Download & Install .NET Core CLI
You can now download the .NET Core CLI 1.0 PKG and install it. Once installed you can verify by running the dotnet command with the -v flag.
Now that you have your environment installed, start your first project.
mkdir hello_world cd hello_world dotnet new -t console dotnet restore dotnet run
Now go forth and be awesome.
