Compiling mono

As you could read in my previous post I’m playing with mono. This is open source so any problem can actualy be fixed by you. All you need to do is make some changes to the sources and compile. A good manual is here, be sure to install libintl2 too. And after a good hour or two you’ll see this in you Cygwin console:

Some problems I ran into

  • In general don’t forget to run make clean.
  • Compilation failed: x error(s), x warnings: check your code, something is not right
  • gac directories could not be created. possibly permission issues.: remove the listed directory and try again
  • …: fork: Resource temporary unavailable.: begin all over 😦 with make clean, ./configure, make, make install
  • More to come…

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
