The installer is for people who want to try Mono quickly.
If you have SUSE, pick the RPM packages for your specific distribution
from the Downloads page, they come in a zip file with lots of rpms on
Then upgrade your Mono installation like this:
rpm -Uvh *.rpm
(In the directory where you unziped the downloaded file).
Is that right?
I have suse 9.2 pro (to $90 version)
My understanding is that upgradeing th ethe latets version will break the applications that come with Suse, and that you need to use a profile to add a second version of Mono.
I have not upgraded yet because someone posted infor on installing under a proffile, but not how to use it afterwards. I could not find anything on profiles in the documnets.
I am sure I am being dumb here, but I have been using Windows for decades, what do you expect.
