You don't need to have a Ipaq or Sharp Zaurus to develop Mono or Gtk# for
Familiar Linux and OpenZaurus.


It is crosscompiling (development is done x86 for arm platform).
Here is instruction howto:

It is not advisable to compile in Ipaq but probably can be done. As
explained above.

I hope we can have mono packages on Familiar soon.
