Pinned topic Mono on PowerLinux

‏2012-05-24T16:56:27Z |
We have an Intel based Linux appliance which has been writtend in C# and Python.
 
Is there a mono package for PowerLinux available? 
 
 
Thanks

    Glenn, thanks for the question.  The answer is that at one time there was a mono package which supported PowerLinux.  It was a good start.  I'm not sure of the state of the current Mono project on Power.  My colleague who worked on it "in his free time" is presently unavailable.  I'll get him to comment when he gets back.
     
    What concerns me most about you question, however, is whether your current environment depends on any C# code not owned by you. My limited knowledge of the .NET environment that mono provides on Linux is that it can include binary modules.  While these would naturally migrate from Windows to Intel Linux, they will need to be re-compiled for PowerLinux.  Can you tell us more about any such dependencies and whether you had plans to address them?

     Thanks for th response.
     
    I'll need to refer to our developers to find out if we use any code that we don't own.

     Our development manager has confirmed that there is no C# code not owned by us.

     AFAIK, mono packages are available on SLES SDK.

    Well we had a working Mono for 32-/64-bit back in the 2.4/2.6 time frame, I have not tracked it since. Mono is really a SUSE project so you might get better support on SLES11 then on other distros > http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2008/Nov-25.html
     
    But I do believe there is a Mono in Fedora 16/17 but have not personally tested ...

     AFAIK, mono packages are available on SLES SDK.
    I have never used them, but I know there are mono packages on both SLES 10 SP4, SLES 11 SP1 and SLES 11 SP2.
     
    For example, on SLES 11 SP2, the following packages are available: 
     
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-nunit-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-web-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-data-postgresql-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-winforms-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-core-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-locale-extras-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-data-sqlite-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc/mono-data-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-data-postgresql-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-web-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-locale-extras-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-core-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-winforms-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-data-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-nunit-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
    ./SLES11SP2/suse/ppc64/mono-data-sqlite-2.6.7-0.7.19.ppc64.rpm
     
    Thanks,
