Hi MongoDB community,
I noticed that the MongoDB CE download center contains linux_x86_64 (generic Linux) builds for v4.0 and before, but not for v4.2 and v4.4, as these only have distro-specific builds available. Where did the generic Linux build go for those new versions?
To explain why I need a generic Linux version, I’m developing an application in TypeScript NodeJS and I want to use the
jest-mongodb package, which uses
mongodb-memory-server under the hood. This needs to download a MongoDB binary, for which it tries to recognise the distro I’m running. However, since I’m running Manjaro Linux (based on Arch, I know there is no official build for Arch Linux) it fails to download a distro-specific version, thus it falls back to the generic linux_x86_64 version. Since we’re running v4.2 in production, I would like to be able to run my tests against MongoDB v4.2, but this requires a generic linux_x86_64 variant of v4.2 (or above), so that the tests will run successfully on all of our development machines as well as the CI.
