[Mono-list] Mandrake Package

I used Mandrake, and I've kept away from rpms, specially for
fast-changing projects like mono. I used to download the latest
snapshot, the sources of the other packages and build everything:
make; make install
Needless to say that in my .bash_profile I had
And that's all. Any extra required packages were installed in the same
prefix. Notice that I've put the mono paths in before the default paths,
so any duplicated package resolved first to the mono path. Of course,
uninstall anything that could be shoking with mono.
This way you have a safe "sandbox" for mono development, and will avoid
tons of dependencies. If something goes wrong, rm -rf mono/install and
start it over again.
Happily I now have a gentoo distro that keeps all things well updated
(latest versions in general), but keeps a very good stability. Am not
evangelizing, just sharing my experience with this distro (btw, a
drawback is that you'll have to do a lot of things manually). Will see
over time if it all stay smooth.
