How can I install the latest release of Mono in Ubuntu Saucy?
In order to develop in a free OS, I need to setup Mono (that now supports .NET 4.5). This is what I did:
- Download and uncompress
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local(finished ok)
make, but it exit with error checking dependencies:
.... mkdir -p -- build/deps make: gmcs: Command not found make: *** [build/deps/basic-profile-check.exe] Error 127 *** The compiler 'gmcs' doesn't appear to be usable. *** You need Mono version 2.4 or better installed to build MCS *** Check mono README for information on how to bootstrap a Mono installation. make: *** [do-profile-check] Error 1 make: *** [profile-do--basic--all] Error 2 make: *** [profiles-do--all] Error 2 make: *** [all-local] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/home/hogar/Software/mono-mono-3.2.5/runtime' make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make: Leaving directory `/home/hogar/Software/mono-mono-3.2.5' make: *** [all] Error 2
But to install
mono-gmcs, Ubuntu will also install
mono-runtime v22.214.171.124-5ubuntu2. And that is exactly what I'm trying to not install, an old version of mono.
This is confusing me, what should I do?
