Mono 2.10.4 parallel environment package for ubuntu/debian users. Includes all references to build GTK# and MVC applications.

Mono parallel

The new Mono 2.10.4 is out and comes with lots of bugfixes. To make it easier to get the latest and greatest on your ubuntu/debian machines, I have created a deb package which I will share with you.

The parallel environment package includes all important references so that you can build your  GTK# and MVC applications.

Once downloaded, the package installs to "/opt/mono-2.10″.
For this 2.10.4 build I once again used Patrick McEvoy`s great mono build script. For those of you who want to make your hands dirty and build mono yourself, you can find the script here:

You can download the mono 2.10.4 debian/ubuntu package here.

Once installed, you can activate the environment by typing the following command in your terminal:

droth@ubuntu04:/var/dev/mono$ source mono-2.10-environment

If you now enter "mono -version" the console should print the following lines:
