Cheers Miguel

So what do I need to do to solve the problem?  How complex would it be
for me to sort out?  I need to get this platform operating as soon as
possible because I am trying to push Mono as an alternative to Java for
embedding in our systems.

Thanks for you help

This means that the floating point configuration for that OS/userland is
not supported by Mono.   This happens every time folks try to use it
with an unsupported configuration in exactly this location.
