[Mono-winforms-list] Re : Win32 API shared libaries - working...(kinda)

RPM's would be nice except I'm running OS X so I'm stuck to using the
source.  I have tinkered and tinkered but still can't get the step "apply
patch to tarball" to complete properly.  Maybe some elaboration from
somebody on that particular step would be of help to those of us trying to
compile the source (or it seems to me that it would be just as easy to post
the patched tarball directly on the site).

Thanks,
Jonathan

Hi Dan - an installer would be a great idea. I hope to clone my current
asp.net framework which i wrote on Windows 2003 server to Mono in the long
term, but it will only become feasible if installers become available.

RPM's were better than my initial attempts to "make" all of the sources, but
they could certainly be better.
