Hello to all, 

I'm sorry for my english, I'm italian 

I'm try to run a VisualBasic.NET program into BackTrack (Linux distro based
on Ubuntu).

First I have run this command:
*apt-get install mono-runtime*

But now if I try to run a very little VB.NET program (a simple "hello world"
appeare this error:

** (Ciccio.exe:5310): WARNING **: The following assembly referenced from
/root/Ciccio.exe could not be loaded:
     Assembly:   Microsoft.VisualBasic    (assemblyref_index=1)
     Public Key: b03f5f7f11d50a3a
The assembly was not found in the Global Assembly Cache, a path listed in
the MONO_PATH environment variable, or in the location of the executing
assembly (/root/).

** (Ciccio.exe:5310): WARNING **: Could not load file or assembly
'Microsoft.VisualBasic, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies.
The entry point method could not be loaded

For to solve it, I try to install VisualBasic package, with this command:
apt-get install mono-basic
but the error is:
E: Couldn't find package mono-basic

Can you tell me how to solve this problem ??

Is it possible to install only runtime package or I need to install mono
complete ??

Many thanks for your answer
