[Mono-list] Missing "Unix" inside of "Mono"

Hi, Jonathan,

You need Mono.Posix.dll, which presumably would be provided by

> I don’t know why apt-get won’t install it. :-(

I actually allows me to install, but warning me it is going to uninstall
mono-devel, so I'd be in the same situation  I was (I'd have to purge
libmono* and reinstall).

The problem seems to be around mono-devel: it probably does not include all
needed dll's (such as Posix), and if you force the installation of
libmono-posix, then the system renders unusable, at least for development.
