mono is in repo now, tough there is still a problem similar to python, copying /tmp/tcloop/mono/usr/local/bin/mono to filesystem is a temporary fix (or simply use cp2fs flag), i will add a tce.installed script to do that later.

most important thing to note about compiling mono on tinycore is that mono by default uses relative paths which causes problems because mono searches .dlls in mounted location instead of /usr/local/lib/mono

other mono packages which are not necessary for end-users but useful for developers
mono-basic
mono-debugger
mono-tools
monodevelop (depends on gnome)

so far i have trouble compiling nunit,nant

why i did this because i believe mono is a milestone for many applications such as open office, f-spot, tomboy notes ...

All,

Yes the version in the repository seems to work very well.  While building remastered distributions of Core,  mono will not run because it needs libiconv.so , which is a missing dependency? I have to manually install it.

Otherwise this works very well.
