[Mono-list] How to compile Mono as generic linux installer package

Hello Daniel,

I cannot imagine how a single tar file would work for different glibc versions.
Perhaps back then there was only 32 bit? that would cause problems
today with 64 bit and 32 bit around.

I maintain mono packages on the opensuse build server, for several
distributions (CentOS, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE).

My package for mono is quite simple, and installs everything to one
directory: /opt/mono
You could install that package on one machine and tar the directory
/opt/mono and see if that works on several machines.

installation instructions generated by OBS:

hope this helps,
