Latest Mono-opt packages for CentOS7 32 bit   January 13th, 2016

I was asked if there are mono packages available for CentOS7 32 bit.

CentOS7 was initially only released for 64 bit, but in October 2015, it was released for 32 bit as well:

So I checked my build options: OBS does not support CentOS7 for 32 bit yet, neither does copr.

So I decided to try to build the packags on LBS. I had to modify my lxc scripts to be able to create a container for CentOS7 32 bit, and that was quite easy (

Now there are the packages mono-opt, mono-basic-opt and mono-xsp-opt available for CentOS7 32bit.

To use them, run this:

rpm --import ""
yum install yum-utils
yum-config-manager --add-repo
yum install mono-opt mono-xsp-opt mono-basic-opt mono-libgdiplus-opt

Make sure to call . /opt/mono/ (mind the space after the dot) before you do any Mono calls!
