Hmm... actually 0.5.6 is the last release , the current release is 
0.5.8 , but I guess the mandrake RPMs have not been built yet ..

If you go via Source too that would be not much of a problem.. Pnet is
too easy to compile ... it's almost totally self-contained and is minimal
fuss (especially since you're on an ordinary platform , and not something
exotic ...).

Probably due to the simple fact that all those packages were built as
a non-root user ie sirian ... Not an issue at all .

Ok, there is a good way to run IL programs by merely "./a.out.exe" ..
running "ilrun --register" as root will get that enabled in the 
Linux kernel. This conflicts with Wine , so you might have to disable
Wine to do this .. but non IL .exes are transferred to wine automatically
by ilrun, so that's not a problem.

cscc ... which is actually not THE C# compiler , but is the command
for compiling C# , VB , Managed C and Java code ... (lighten up a bit
on the Java part, because CVS is missing java.lang.dll) and is compatible
to the GCC command line syntax as well as the .NET one ...

So you can either cscc -o 1.exe 1.cs or cscc /out:1.exe 1.cs

There's a goodish amount of documentation inside the rpms ... try 
"man cscc" or "man ilrun" .

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
