[Mono-aspnet-list] How to check/force ASP.NET to use Mono compiled from SVN trunk

I hope this is the right forum. I am trying to test that a bug has been
fixed in the latest trunk (

I installed MONO 2.0 from the openSuse DVD, then fetched the latest trunk of
mono from SVN, compiled it and installed it using:

  $ svn co http://anonsvn.mono-project.com/source/trunk/mono
  $ svn co http://anonsvn.mono-project.com/source/trunk/mcs
  $ svn co http://anonsvn.mono-project.com/source/trunk/libgdiplus

  $ cd mono
  $ ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local
  $ make
  $ make install

(it compiled OK, and most of the tests passed as well - well done to the
MONO team - it wasn't problematic at all, up to this point!).

# mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version >>> 2.5 (/trunk/mono r139703 Tue Aug 11 23:36:19
EST 2009) <<<

        Notifications: epoll

I take this to show that the Mono executable on the path is the one that I

However, when I get an error on my ASP.NET page (meaning the bug has not
been fixed), the versions reported are:

*Version information: *Mono Version: >>> 2.0.50727.42; ASP.NET Version:
2.0.50727.42 <<<

So, now I'm not sure that the version that I compiled is in fact being used.

Am I just confused? Did I miss something? How do I tell Apache to use the
version I compiled, or did "make install" do that for me (by replacing the
mono 2.0 binaries)?

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm running openSUSE 11.1, on a clean freshly installed virtual machine
(yesterday). Mono is used under Apache 2 (virtual host).
