I have installed the latest available Mono from the Mono project repositories (I have also tried installing it from the default system repos) but as soon as I run Wine it asks me about downloading Mono and downloads it if I agree. Why does it need it? Why won't it just use the system Mono instance?

Same things is applicable to the Gecko engine - it asks to download it too instead of just using what comes with Firefox.


It seems I've found the answer myself: Wine uses a version of Mono built for the Windows platform while the instance of Mono installed in the system is, obviously, built for Linux.
