Hello Cyd,

xbuild works fine with relative paths, but /data is an absolute path
in the Linux world.
If it was just data or ../data or something, that would be a relative
path, and it should work as expected.

I am usually using sed during the build process to replace things in
the csproj file and put it into shape, so that it works on Linux. You
could replace /data with data, and see how that works.
sed -i "s#/data#data#g" my.csproj

All the best,
