I did just that 🙂 It did, however, take three days and a burnt Raspberry Pi 4 to accomplish 🙁 I’ll provide a link to instructions to create the executables for mongod, mongos and mongo — as well as provide a few tips to successfully compile. Better and easier than that, I provide links to already compiled versions with instructions on how to install and use.
