Build monodevelop on ubuntu 11.10
Again? yes but this time I don’t have to built mono runtine Ubuntu 11.10 packed with mono 2.10.5 which good enough since what I am after is dynamic.
However monodevelop I got from Ubuntu Software Center (USC) is 2.6 and the official release is 2.8.x so I take my on my gut to try and built me an IDE ;)
This time it much easier what I have to do is get latest copy of the source code from github.com
> git clone git://github.com/mono/monodevelop.git
Then install build dependent by issuing this command
> sudo apt-get build-dep monodevelop
I don’t know why mono-gmcs was not install as part of the previous command (if you know why please comment) for now I have to install another package
> sudo apt-get install mono-gmcs
and then I’m ready to
> sudo make && make run
