<html><div style='background-color:'><DIV class=RTE>
<P>I am a long time ms programmer trying very hard to transition to mono.</P>
<P>I have yet to get monodevelop working... Off and on for a month&nbsp;and a half&nbsp;and 5 installs of fedora core 3. I have ordered SUSE 9.3... but fedora should have worked I think</P>
<P>I had mono up in a couple of hours and wrote some code with eclipse and the mono addin in another couple of hours. but the install for monodevelop&nbsp;is freakin nuts.</P>
<P>I would love to contribute (especially a&nbsp;refactoring addin if not already done)&nbsp;but I have yet to even see the app. I have 20 something years of programming experience and this is really frustrating. </P>
<P>As soon as I get it up and running I would like to start a mono/linux user group is S Florida for&nbsp; MS .net guys to help ease the transition. MS has really pisssed on them with the new MSDN pricing.</P>
<P>Does anyone have a step by step instruction guide&nbsp;for any distro?</P>
<P>Thanks<BR><BR>Gary Davidson </P></DIV>

<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; What do you view as so complicated about it?
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt;
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; In principle a simple static Makefile should do the trick (aside from
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; compiling native libs for interop)...
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt;
<DIV></DIV>&gt;For small things probably yes, but that sort of side-stepped my
<DIV></DIV>&gt;question.&nbsp;&nbsp;Even if we wrote our own static makefiles you will still need
<DIV></DIV>&gt;the -devel packages.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;For something like monodevelop it will then also fail in several ways.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;- installing all the gnome related files to the right locations
<DIV></DIV>&gt;(.desktop, etc)
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;- I18N stuff that seems to be integrated in automake/autoconf nicely
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;- conditional things
<DIV></DIV>&gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;- tons of other things discovered along the way, i.e. little mac
<DIV></DIV>&gt;specific things
<DIV></DIV>&gt;That being said if it really is too complicated and is preventing people
<DIV></DIV>&gt;from using/contributing lets find out what is actually the trouble and
<DIV></DIV>&gt;maybe we can simplify things a bit.&nbsp;&nbsp;One thing is we can now add project
<DIV></DIV>&gt;files to svn once some details are figured out.
