I would like to install the latest version of MongoDB on my rpi 3 but apt-get install the version 2.4.

How can I install the latest?

  • What do you define as "the latest" version? The latest one in a RPi repository? The bleeding-edge development version somewhere in github-land? Some other version? – roaima Mar 31 '18 at 15:26

You need a 64bit OS, So copy that to your sdcard first.

Then you can install(3.2) from a repository

apt show mongodb-server 2>/dev/null | grep Version
Version: 1:3.2.11-2+deb9u1

or install(3.6) from source;

apt install git python-pip
mkdir /opt/mongodb
cd /opt/mongodb
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/scons/scons-3.0.1.tar.gz
tar -xzf scons-3.0.1.tar.gz
cd scons-3.0.1
python setup.py install
cd ../
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/mongodb/mongo.git --branch v3.6
cd mongo
pip install -r buildscripts/requirements.txt
scons-3.0.1 core MONGO_VERSION=3.6.0-$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)
scons-3.0.1 install

  • Yes, the latest Raspbian is armv7l, so a 32 bit. – kamal951 Mar 31 '18 at 15:36
  • I don’t know if this is the start of an answer, but it certainly doesn’t include installing the latest mongodb... – Jeff Schaller Mar 31 '18 at 16:28
  • There is 32-bit mongodb, only its maximal db size is limited to 32 bits. – peterh Mar 31 '18 at 17:21
