I am sure, I am missing something here, but

1) CentOS must have a mono package - why would your app not run with
those binaries - unless

2) .. you changed mono's source, and distribute only binaries, that
would be violating GPL

or ...

3) your app is actually something that enhances mono

So - what am I missing?

Can you provide more details?

Is it a .NET app or something in C/C++?

Does it modify mono's sources?

Are you open to open sourcing your app?
