As you may have noticed, the Mono packages provided by Xamarin won’t work on CentOS5, because some libraries are too old.

Yesterday, I realized that my Mono build for CentOS5 was still on version 3.12.1.

So I updated my Mono packages on LBS, and we have the latest Mono available for CentOS5 now.

To install it, follow the instructions at

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/lbs-tpokorra-mono.repo
yum install mono-opt mono-opt-devel

To use it, you need to call the environment script first (mind the space between the dot and the slash…):

. /opt/mono/
Mono 4 for CentOS5
