I have spent a few good hours compiling the latest mono for the Rasbperry Pi.

I wouldn't want to do this again, if it came to it. I tried cross compiling with qemu but I am still a noob with qemu.

So I endeavoured I have finally compiled it on the Pi, and got it working.(after 3 attempts)

How can I create a package with all dependencies, so I can just install it later?

    It is may years since I did anything like this, and I found it an arcane process. You would be better to search on a Ubuntu or debian site for tutorials on building .deb files. – Milliways Feb 21 '15 at 3:55
  • I tried checkinstall.... waited like 2 1/2 hours and then failed, with no proper indication of why. Somthing like make install-revursive[ Error 1 ] ? :( – Piotr Kula Feb 21 '15 at 11:17
  • Keep checking if you are really determined to do this. I remember that ultimately I found out how to do this for Ubuntu and did it but then decided it wasn't worth the effort. – SDsolar Sep 9 '17 at 6:20
