Good to hear!  

Which instructions did you use?   And if you had any problem with
existing instructions, could you tell us what it was, so we can update

I think that my recommendation from the last email is a good starting


Just a couple of days ago I noticed that the code in mono/mono/io-layer
that implements EnumProcesses does not work on the Mac.

This means that the Process.GetProcesses call actually crashes.

The current implementation only works on Linux, where we use /proc to
fetch a list of system processes.

Would you be interested in implementing this support for OSX?


Additionally, you could look for all the bugs on
www.mono-project.com/Bugs that have been reported specifically for OSX.
