Hi Jo,
I compiled the mono on aix system, but I run the mono it core dumped for a sigsegv on this line:
Mini-runtime: 2334
return runtime_invoke (obj, params, exc, info->compiled_method);

but when I tried to debug it using gdb, but I can't enter this function " runtime_invoke ", I know it is a pointer function,
how can I know the exact function name, and is it a lib function? Or is there any address  problem for this function running on aix?

Kindly hope get your reply,
thank you!

Monolite is platform-independent bytecode.

If you're getting a core dump, that comes from your mono runtime port.

In general, the low-hanging fruit for getting the runtime working are the tests in mono/mini - compile them on a Linux box (cd mono/mini && make check), transfer them over, and get all of them (8 I think) working without failures.
