[Mono-dev] Request for status of Entity framework on Mono

There's no official release of Entity Framework 6 yet, the latest release
is the first beta release. Additionally, I don't think all the supporting
architecture is fully working in Mono yet. You could try it and see,
although I'd use Entity Framework from NuGet as the one bundled with Mono
is out of date.

If you only need basic features, I'd suggest looking at a micro ORM like
ServiceStack ORMLite, Dapper, or Massive. These are all very basic facades
over raw ADO.NET, usually providing only basic ORM. I use ORMLite with Mono
and it works quite well.
