I use the yum repositories for Fedora Core 1 and Fedora Core 2.

When everything works, the yum repositories approach is very easy.  (How 
hard could it be to type "yum install mono"?)  My problems with the 
install are all related to broken/unsatisfied/missing dependencies.

If it cuts down on the dependency related issues, sure!  But I still 
prefer the yum repositories mainly because I install my other software 
using it.  Since I install everything anyway, it really doesn't make any 
difference to me if two packages or thirty packages are installed.  
Though I have to admit that it is way cooler to watch thirty packages 
scroll by in yum.
