Hi there,

If you want to use the newest mono version (1.2.6-4 I think) on Centos5 you
will need to compile them yourself or what I did get the sources, get the
spec files and use rpmbuild to produce your own rpms.

Using rpmbuild with the supplied specs is rather straight forward. I just
had to remove the %package_debug macros from those files.
