Update apps on store (Mono in particular)

Postby itdaboyz » Thu Jun 14, 2018 10:43 pm

Hello Asustor Team,

Can we get an update to Mono?
The version on the store is nearly 1 year old now.

Same goes for python which is 3 years old, and for a lot, lot of apps on the store. It feels like if we don't ask for update, you never push them...

Could you give us updates for app you maintain?

Thank you

Meh. Only 1 year.
Java 1.8.0 update 31 was released on January 2015... :roll:

Better yet, provide a documented API to the open source community to allow us to create, update, or port the applications we'd like to see onto the platform. It's only obvious that ASUSTOR doesn't have the allocatable resources to keep their apps up-to-date. Much less the desire.

ADM doesn't recognize domain users or groups, FFS.

I'm guessing it's a matter of "RAM was too expensive when we designed this thing to load it with a functional Linux, so we just implemented with busybox." Unfortunately, that outlook carried through to the rest of the project as it so often does.

Well... That's lame...

Don't get me wrong but my Raspberry Pi has as much RAM as my NAS and it can run Linux very well. I think it's more like "hey look you can have X and X on your NAS" but after that, no one on the dev team is allocated on maintaining apps. It would be great to have a full working distribution so we could add whatever we want with a simple "apt-get".
I agree with on the doc part though.

Well, mono has been updated.

Previously i couldn't update Jackett because it wasn't working (mono version too old).

Now, with the new version on mono it's not updating because "Error checking for updates.".

Just another day with an Asustor NAS.

If you own a series 2/3/6 Asustor it's very likely you won't get XBMC 13.x/Kodi.
But easily you'll end buying a kitchen from UK.

Mono is updated to 5.8, why 5.8 when it could have been 5.12?
Well, I guess it's something at least.

I have the same issue with Jackett and this message:
The mono certificate store is not initialized.
Please run the following command as root:
cert-sync /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

The given command doens't work.
That's a great update...

Of course it is.
Asustor took over the maintenance of the package, with the "usual care" they use.

Looks like they really work hard to have me jumping ship to synology or qnap.

Ok, I found the issue and a solution to this.

Go to /volume1/.@plugins/AppCentral/mono/bin and edit the file cert-sync.

Replace :
Code: Select all
exec /usr/local/AppCentral/bin/mono $MONO_OPTIONS /usr/local/AppCentral/lib/mono/4.5/cert-sync.exe "$@"

With :
Code: Select all
exec /usr/local/AppCentral/mono/bin/mono $MONO_OPTIONS /usr/local/AppCentral/mono/lib/mono/4.5/cert-sync.exe "$@"


Save the file.

SSH and run the following command:
Code: Select all
sudo /usr/local/AppCentral/mono/bin/cert-sync /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt


You now have new certificates and Jackett should have no issue after a reboot.

So, basically they screwed the path to certficates.

Ok, did the modifications and now works flawlessy.

Thanks.
