Installing MonoDevelop 2.2 with debug support

First of all the mono which is in fedora12 repository doesn't have a working debugger. So i had to build it my self using the latest monodevelop-2.1.2 source code. Follow the below steps and you will have a working mono develop with debugger support (I am using mono-2.4 which doesn't contain the soft debugger).

  1. Extract the monodevelop-2.1.2.tar.bz2 and run ./configure script. make sure you install the required libs and their devel packages as well.
  2. Run make.
  3. Run make install.
  4. Extract monodevelop-debugger-mdb-2.1.2.tar.bz2 (Mono Debugger support).
  5. Set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH to point the directory which contains monodevelop.pc file using the command export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
  6. Run ./configure script.
  7. Run make
  8. Run make install.
You can do the same steps 5, 6, 7, 8 if you need to install the GDB Debugger support as well.
Your done :).
