installing mono
« on: January 01, 2014, 12:35:31 am »
Hello

I need to install mono in order to run a windows EPG grabber program, because I have no other option. But I can't find a way to do it.
I added the correct repo (badgerports) tried to run "sudo apt-get install mono" and "mono-complete" but no go. I also failed doing this thru synaptic.
Any idea ?

Thnx
Itsik

Was the program compiled using mono?  If it wasn't then there is a good chance that it isn't going to work.  Mono uses their own libraries and not the Microsoft .NET ones,  thats how they make it cross platform.

To answer my own question, and a huge thank you to TSCHAK and L3top for solving this for me, you can do this either by compiling mono from source:
Code: [Select]
apt-get install gcc g++ bison gettext make
cd /usr/local/src
wget http://download.mono-project.com/sources/mono/mono-2.10.8.tar.gz
tar zxvf mono-2.10.8.tar.gz
cd mono-2.10.8
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
make && make install

or running:
Code: [Select]
apt-get install --dry-run mono-2.0-devel
Hope somebody will find this useful ...
