Is there an official MongoDB repo for the Raspberry Pi


Got this issue:

W: Failed to fetch http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/debian-sysvinit/dists/dist/Release  Unable to find expected entry '10gen/binary-armhf/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

Notices it's malformed

Fixed but still the same issue

Failed to fetch http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/debian-sysvinit/dists/dists/dist/10gen/binary-armhf/Packages  404  Not Found


trying this

UGH... Well that took 12 hours to compile and install!

Also have seen this, any feedback?


Looks like this might be worked on officially, but when is more of the question

    You should answer your own question. There is no official arm version of MongoDB. You should also clarify what you mean by "official." Especially since you link to work being done by Canonical - To my view the only "official" packages come from MongoDB. Commented Feb 16, 2015 at 5:23

You didn't specify OS requirement, though you hint at using Raspbian.

Another option is to use ArchLinux ARM. Arch always has the most up-to-date software available, great support for ARM and for things not available in the official repository, the Arch User Repository.

I see looking at the Arch ARM repository that MongoDB 2.6.8 is available. And if you want 3.0, it's available in the AUR, which makes it pretty easy to install.

(had some additional links but reputation limits prohibits including more than two, so you'll have to do some googling)

Unofficial MongoDB binaries for the Pi and instructions to compile can now be found on Github.
