[Mono-list] Why is mono so difficult????
Thu, 01 Jan 2004 08:10:52 +0000
a few days ago, i downloaded mono and mcs from your homepage. Compiling and
was no joy (missing files like bytefx.snk) But, OK fixed it. The mono seems
OK, so I would like to run a small test program. Nothing exiting. A form
a button which pops up a message box "Good By Cruel World!"
I am aware that this task is not so easy. Sure how can mono handle
You need windows to do that, I do not have windows, but I got wine. (At home
computer I got only Linux, at work I got all this $Microsoft, but that's in
So I found a directory in mcs /mcs/class/System.Windows.Forms. Oh, and it
got a README.
I always read this kind of files. README says start wine by calling
makes sense, try to embed mono into an win32 executable. Needless to say I
find monostub.exe.so. But I found a WINELib directory which contains
The README says just enter "make" in the WINELib, which does not make too
because thw WINELib directory does not contain any Makefile. Ok, I thought
a big deal, just run winemaker on the monostub.c which sure also fails
because I can just
compile, but not link undefined reference 'mono_jit_init' Sure now I try
to find out in which library contains this function. Or does it make sense
I mean. After I find this out, the next problem will accure for sure. I
guess it will be
a neverending story!!! Downloading things here takes forever. I am in
Vietiane just now, one
of the poorest countries on gods earth, we do not have good Internet, every
a pain... OK I am thinking about downloading an rpm instead of source. :-(
I am just a windows programmer. Making my living working as an ordinary
Visual Basic, VB.NET
programmer in a pharma company. Sure I like the idea to have .NET on linux.
Sure I would like to run my programs on linux. Sure I would like to get
involved in your project.
But, it seems what nothing really works. Is it so hard to include a makefile
a configure or
something for monostub.c. Is it so hard to write some help for your mono_
For example where to find the necessary libs?
I am not a guy who complains fast. For two days I am trying to get as much
information about mono!
A little bit very disappointed!!!
Happy new Year anyway Happy 2547 (We are a little bit ahead of time here
