Mono and 10.0 OE

Hello, I am thinking of installing mono.
I found these 4 rpms at


Has anyone installed Mono from RPMs on Mandrake 10.0 OE?
I am not sure of the details. Is this all I need? And does this give me the MonoDevelop, DocViewer, and other tools? From looking @ contents i dont think MonoDevelop comes with it.

I found this rpm:


Anyway, I'd just like some advice on what to do and how to do it to install mono, so I can try some programming with it.

Thanks a lot.

You could use the 'urpmi' command to install them.
You could put them together in a directory and enter:
urpmi libmono* mono*
Having them all on the command line will take care of
dependencies amongst these four packages. Although you
may still need to take care of other dependencies.
