[Mono-list] Debian support

I can describe a summary of how I get Mono 2.4 from sources, it's not difficult.

I assume using Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (my system have it installed)

Bison installed (apt-get install bison)
libgdiplus-2.4 installed (I got it from mono sources also, then
./configure && make && make install)

Get mono-2.4.tar.bz2, decompress it.
Change to directory created after decompress.
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
sudo make install

And... I believe that is all. The make command will take a long time to compile.

You can install XSP in the same way.

To asp.net support for apache web server (asumming apache 2):

sudo apt-get install apache-threaded-dev
Get mod_modo-2.4 and decompress it.
./configure --prefix=/usr/local
sudo make install

When it finishes, make sure that mod_mono.conf is created in
/etc/apache2 folder.

Edit /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Search for this section:

         # Include module configuration:
         Include /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/*.load
         Include /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/*.conf

Add the following line, below.

          Include /etc/apache2/mod_mono.conf

At the end of configuration file, add the following

           MonoServerPath /usr/local/bin/mod-mono-server2

Restart apache

           sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

And you should have mono 2.4 with .net support for apache, and xsp2
light webserver for development. Type mono --version to get the
version currently installed.

Those were the steps that I followed to get mono 2.4 fully functional
in a fresh Ubuntu Intrepid install.

Let me know if you need more help. I can give a hand.
