Help!! Mono on Fedora core 5 - problem
Hey ppl

I installed Mono on fedora core 5, but monodevelop wont open. It doesnt give any sort of message, it just doesnt start.
I am a .NET developer moving from windows to linux, and as you would have realized by now... quite inexperienced with linux to say the least :P.
Any suggestions on how to resolve the issue?
Please help. Thanks in advance.

I am same kind of developer but not switching to linux for .Net :)
anyways , you must search for some log file that were generated by monodevelop, and there you can find error.

also I have experince qutie a few time that, some Graphical application starts tooo late in Fedore project even on my p4 machine .. :) but mostly it is like some error where logged some where that can help you.

also, if you are not root user , try to run application as root or if you are running it as root than try visa versa,

Hope that helps

Installation help

I had kind of the same problem. But here is what I did:

Download all the zip-files from

Then unzip each zip-file to a seperate folder.

Then open up a terminal window and change directories to this folder and run this command.

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

If You get a dependency error use this command instead rpm -Uvh *.rpm --nodeps

Order of installation:
1. Mono
2. webserver (downloads as XSP/
3. gtk-sharp-1.0 (download name Gtk#1 - You might already have this installed with FC5, but I did it anyway)
4. Development tools (

As a true geek I must say: "It works on my machine" ;-)

Good luck guys
