Description of problem:
we have another winner in the libdir insanity:

[david@dawkins Hentet]$ monodevelop 
WARNING: Cannot find Mozilla directory containing libgtkembedmoz.so. Some Addins may not be able to function. Please set MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME to your Mozilla directory.

Comment 1 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-21 05:47:25 UTC
This problem is trivial to fix -- basically the monodevelop shell script is now provided in final form, instead of monodevelop.in, and we are still trying to patch monodevelop.in

A harder problem is that the Cecil and Nunit fixes are now broken too. The scripts probably need to be updated -- there are some archaic references in the spec to nunit22, for instance. I'll look into this.

[michel@erdos monodevelop]$ rpm -qpl /home/michel/Download/monodevelop-2.1.0-1.fc12.x86_64.rpm | grep Cecil
[michel@erdos monodevelop]$ rpm -qpl /home/michel/Download/monodevelop-2.1.0-1.fc12.x86_64.rpm | grep nunit

Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-21 06:01:42 UTC
(and all the cecil scripts at the top of the spec file are somehow commented out -- why? Thankfully, #% is equivalent to %, so the commenting does no harm)

Going to replace our cecil and nunit patches with a sed script; really, there is no point hard-coding the list of files we change, as we'd just end up playing whack-a-mole. better to nab any occurence of the files across all makefiles.

Comment 3 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-09-21 08:16:31 UTC
OK, the new build should be up on Rawhide soon:


I've reworked all the patches; most of the cecil/nunit adjustments are now done using sed, to make sure we do not miss any; the -unbundle patches are simply to prevent the bundled Cecil and NUnit DLLs from being included in the install, and the -rmcecildeps is to make Cecil-using assemblies to link against the system Cecil.

Minor spec errors and excessive dependencies have been fixed; and we now use the latest nunit 2.4 rather than the compatibility nunit22.

You are truly a god amongst men Michel and I owe you beer in quantities unmentionable by mere mortals.

Comment 5 Bobby Powers 2009-09-30 17:36:52 UTC
I've had the same issue.  Changing the path to the monodevelop exe allowed mono to startup, but trying to compile anything failed (with a .NET/mono not found error) until i put a symlink at /usr/lib/mono to /usr/lib64/mono.  I can test the new packages and see if it fixes this too.

Comment 6 Bobby Powers 2009-09-30 17:44:44 UTC
2.1.0-2 still has a broken monodevelop launcher (looks in /usr/lib instead of /usr/lib64).

In addition, compilation is still broken with the error:
"Framework 'Mono / .NET 2.0' not installed."
This can be 'fixed' by:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/mono /usr/lib/mono

hope this helps

Comment 7 Paul F. Johnson 2009-09-30 18:04:52 UTC
Commiting 2.1.0-3. It should fix the monodevelop launcher... Expect it to hit rawhide tomorrow...

Comment 8 Michel Alexandre Salim 2009-10-01 17:02:03 UTC
You'd have to request rel-eng to tag it for F-12 before you can build, though. I think the new Rawhide builds are no longer being pushed to the daily compose (i.e. FTP's rawhide is different from our spec repo's rawhide).
