I have mono 2.10.9 installed on a VM with openSuse version 12.2. I'm trying to find a distribution for the latest v3 Release of Mono which I can use to upgrade the version of mono that I have installed. I cannot find any distribution of Mono 3 for openSuse and I'm wondering how to go about upgrading to Mono 3 (if it's possible).

Please note I come from mainly a Windows background and while I have used Unix in the past (SCO Unix), the Unix world has changed a lot since I last was involved with it. I'm sure I can get mono to build on openSuse, but it's the number of other dependencies that are required, their versions etc; and I'm just not comfortable enough with the environment yet to get a grip on it all.

I hope that someone out there can point in the right direction.

Check the Mono:Factory project in OBS - it's not considered stable yet. You can also get there from the opensuse package directory - click "select other versions" then "show unstable versions".

Thanks for the answer, I've managed to download and install mono-complete, just need to figure out where it got installed to now. – Bigtoe Nov 13 '12 at 13:50
rpm -ql mono-core gives you list of installed files. You can also check this in the yast-packager of course. – peterph Nov 13 '12 at 15:53
