Using Project Rider under Linux: prerequisites

dnx is already deprecated & replaced with .net cli - so should rider work with .net cli too?


I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 with latest Mono (4.2.1) and .NET Core 1.1. When I try to open up a basic hello world project, I get the following:

The lifetime has already been terminated.
Object name: 'Lifetime'.

Project 'helloworld' load failed: Can't connect to MsBuild project model process in 600000 ms
