When I say "supported", it means it has not been tested nor developed for the platform.  Thus, it probably does not work on these platforms.

However, if you need access to Oracle via Mono on these platforms, there are some things you can do to get it "supported".

1. contribute patches which fixes any bugs to allow it to work on those platofrms

-- or --

2. provide some hacker remote access to a sparc machine with a recent version of mono/mcs working on the machine, and access to an oracle database. ssh?

-- or --

3. donate or lend a developer a sparc machine with a recent mono which runs a recent version of mono

-- or --

4. Your best bet - pay Novell for the support.  There is some wiki page where you can get paid support to add a feature of fix a bug for mono.


Note, I do not work for Novell nor am I getting anything for this message - just a public message.

Most people running oracle is on linux/x86, windows, or hp these days.
