Hi all,

I am a very newbie in compiling Mono from sources (I have used RPMs so far) and I am not managed to do it successfully.

I have sources from http://go-mono.com/sources/mono-1.1/mono-1.1.8.tar.gz and http://mono.ximian.com/daily/mono- and 'make' runs into error here:

make[7]: Entering directory `/usr/src/mono-1.1.8/mono-1.1.8/mcs/class/corlib'
make all-local
make[8]: Entering directory `/usr/src/mono-1.1.8/mono-1.1.8/mcs/class/corlib'

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make: *** [all] Error 2

It seems that files are needed. I found some files in the unpacked archive's root. I started to copy them to locations that were turned out while making. But it is a very slow practice. How should I do this the best?
