    Mono Installation

    Hello,

    I have a server which is running CentOS, and I have been able to install both Mono and Mod_Mono for the purposes of running my ASP.Net application. This took me a while to get working, but eventually it did.

    In order to do this, I had to install all the pre-requisites and then compile Mono and Mod_Mono from source using ./configure, make and make install. My question now though is, what happens when I want to install a newer version.

    When I install packages using yum or rpm, I have the option of uninstalling, however, I haven't found any way of doing this with packages compiled from source, so how do I uninstall? Or do I? Do I just compile from source again on top of what is already there?

    Thanks

    Gary

    CentOS mono repositories

    sorry it took awhile for you to get a response....

    Here is a link that discusses mono repositories for CentOS...so you could avoid dealing with source code:

    http://developer.mindtouch.com/Deki_...Guide/CentOS_5

    This link makes mention of "make uninstall" followed by "make clean" to remove at least components of mono if it was installed from source code:

    From https://www.centos.org/modules/newbb...topic_id=22669

    1. I uninstalled mod_mono, mono and XSP using the make uninstall command Afterwards, I deleted the directory using rm -rf "directoryname".

    Hope this helps.

    Hey,

    Thank you very much for the reply.

    I will need to read through the links and try to implement them.

    The reason that I was asking the question is that the version of mono that I am using is waiting on a bug fix, and when it is released I want to install it.

    On a side note, the first link you pointed me at mentions Fedora, but I am using CentOS. Am I missing something here, or can packages created for Fedora be installed on CentOS?

    Thanks

    Gary

    From the first link:

    "This is an imperfect howto of an installation on CentOS 5.
    It's based on the FC 6 installation guide.
    There are still a few glitches to solve."

    You'd have to read the web page to see what differences exist. Both CentOS and Fedora use rpm and yum package management.

    From Wikipedia:

    "CentOS is a community-supported, free and open source operating system based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). It exists to provide a free enterprise class computing platform and strives to maintain 100% binary compatibility with its upstream distribution." (RHEL)

    "Fedora (pronounced /fəˈdɔrə/) is an RPM-based, general purpose operating system built on top of the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat."

    I went to the official web page for Mono:

    http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page

    I couldn't get through to the download page to see if they mentioned the CentOS repository for it, and I haven't searched much on the CentOS main page,

    http://www.centos.org/

    to find it. Maybe you can also post to the CentOS forum there. I'm confident they can point you right to the repository so you can use YUM to install and maintain Mono.
