mono installation problems
Today was my forth attempt to install mono, and i think i have been to hell and back. It forced me to format my machine, after failing to get mono working, where could i be messing? I have also tried using add remove programs, but it is not working, i have tried to build it from the source, and i am experiencing problems. Is there any body out there who has installed mono in his/er machine, which is working fully, and is willing to offer a helping hand step by step, and is there a way to fully remove mono from my machine (uninstall). I am trying to meet a deadline, and it seems i will be forced 2 go back to windows, after advising my friends to try ubuntu. I am installing mono in Ubuntu 7.10. Please help!!

Perhaps you already tried this. If so, sorry.
Maybe try debian itself (no "Ubuntifications") and this install guide

Hope it helps.

I wonder what the hell you want out of Mono, where I come from, it's a disease.

I tried doing it your way piarata, but i got this error!

root@MvServer:~# md5sum mono-
md5sum: mono- No such file or directory

I downloaded the installer.bin on the desktop, can that be a problem, or where should i have placed it. I have also tried:

administrator@MvServer:~$ md5sum mono-1.9_5-installer.bin
md5sum: mono-1.9_5-installer.bin: No such file or directory

of which am getting the same error, now what would be the next move? Please help. 4 u junior hacker, i use many programs 2 design softwares, so i think Mono comes in handy. I like to make .Net programs, in linux, and wat is working is Mono. But thanx a lot 4 the concern.
