[Mono-list] newbie: mono on GNU/Linux

The go-mono site contains a lot of good information, based on which we
tried to compile a 5 step procedure to get the Mono:: project working on
Linux. Just a few days ago we added "step 6: compiling mcs on Linux".
You still need an mcs compiler originally built on windows (to bootstrap
the process) which you can download in RPM, SRPM or tarball from the
same website.

All this info can be found at http://mono.baselabs.org.

good luck.
