Hi Paulo,

I use Fedora Core 3. And I have installed Mono, Monodevelop & Monodoc.

I used Smart Package Manager (http://zorked.net/smart/). This Package
Manager support Yum repositories, Up2Date Repositories, APT-RPM
Repositories, APT-DEB, RedCarpet....etc... All in one :-D

Well, then I used the follow Yum repository as a Channel to Smart
Package Manager:

mono.repo file:
name=Mono 1.1 for fedora-$releasever-$basearch

name=Gtk# 1.0 for fedora-$releasever-$basearch

name=Gtk# 2.0 for fedora-$releasever-$basearch

You can use this mono.repo as a repository file for yum, put it
in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Then, install mono:

With yum:

bash# yum install mono-complete monodevelop monodoc

With smart:

bash# smart install mono-complete monodevelop monodoc

Best Regards
