[Mono-list] Understanding a bit how things work

Thank you Carlos, I will get another cup of coffee and go through

In the meantime, let me ask two more focused questions.

1. Given a VS2008 studio project with a .SLN and .CPROG file which
loads in monodevelop and at least partially compiles to the first
"using" error, how can I compile the same project from a bash command
line with gmcs in mono, or can I ?

2. The compilation in monodevelop fails at the first "using SlimDX".
Is there a package in mono that supports SlimDX in Linux or is the
source going to have to be re-worked to change this dependency to
something else and if so, what might the something else be?
