Cycle 5 – Service Release 2: Mono 4.0.2 and MonoDevelop 5.9.4   July 3rd, 2015

There have been new stable releases of Mono and MonoDevelop: https://releases.xamarin.com/stable-release-cycle-5-service-release-2/

I have updated the mono-opt and monodevelop-opt packages.

You can install it from OBS: have a look at the instructions here: https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Atpokorra%3Amono&package=mono-opt

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

. /opt/mono/env.sh

Package names for RPM based systems:

  • CentOS6 and CentOS7
  • Fedora 21 and Fedora 22
  • OpenSUSE 13.1 and OpenSUSE 13.2
yum install mono-opt mono-opt-devel monodevelop-opt mod_mono-opt mono-basic-opt mono-nant-opt mono-tools-opt mono-uncrustify-opt mono-xsp-opt nunit-opt nuget-opt

Package names for Debian based systems:

  • Debian Wheezy (7) and Debian Jessie (8)
  • Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 15.04
apt-get install mono-opt monodevelop-opt modmono-opt mono-basic-opt mono-nant-opt mono-tools-opt mono-uncrustify-opt mono-xsp-opt nunit-opt nuget-opt

Fix for building Debian packages on OBS:

There has been a change on OBS, resulting in lintian errors now failing the build.

For more details see https://github.com/openSUSE/open-build-service/issues/944

The solution for me was:

osc meta prjconf -e
  # insert this line:
  Support: !lintian

You can see and set this setting also in the web UI: https://build.opensuse.org/project/prjconf/home:tpokorra:mono

mono-opt for CentOS5

I have also updated mono-opt for CentOS5, which I build on my LBS server. You can install the latest version following the instructions at https://lbs.solidcharity.com/package/tpokorra/mono/mono-opt:

wget https://download.solidcharity.com/repos/tpokorra/mono/centos/5/lbs-tpokorra-mono.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/lbs-tpokorra-mono.repo
yum install mono-opt mono-opt-devel
