Is there a version of fsharp that takes msbuild as a dependency, rather than msbuild-stable? I need to use msbuild-16-bin for another package build.

I'd say that the main way to get the latest stable version of F# core libraries and compiler is now through .Net Core (which, unlike .Net Framework, runs on Linux). The dotnet[core]-sdk package is currently stuck to the 2.2 version and flagged as stale ( While we wait for the maintainer to update it, you can install the 3.0 version using the instructions (I wrote) in the wiki: Once you install it that way, you'll find compiler and libraries in e.g. /opt/dotnet/sdk/3.0.100/FSharp .

That said, nothing prevents from having another package named, say, fsharp-git that builds from git ( ) and another that builds it using Mono (if that's still possible, maybe using this repo: ).

Is updating this package to core and 4.7 not an option too? Or is there some other package already doing that?

The upstream development of F# has moved away from mono some time ago, and the F# compiler is now shipped as part of dotnet core. The most recent version of F# is in fact 4.7 ( ). They even changed repository from to . So I think it's confusing for users to keep this package as is: I'd rather rename it as fsharp-mono (or delete it).

I'll do my best to maintain this package. I'm not a f# guru but I also don't want this package to die. Please be patient and if someone else more veteran would like to take the package over, please send me a DM.

I have disowned this package. Somebody is welcome to take over as the package maintainer.

For those who do not want to downgrade mono, I have published a binary version of fsharp ( I use the official Ubuntu 18.04 builds for that.

Of course, building from source is still recommended.

Can confirm that downgrading to Mono 5.20 allows fsharp to be built. Thanks @loures

Would be nice to get a more long term solution going where its able to build off the latest release though.

I have the same error as GRS as well. Clean Arch Linux build, cant use MonoDevelop currently :/

Kind regards KingEldarion

I think it's an issue with Mono 6.0, the build works fine with Mono 5.20.
