Trying to install Mono from source on Fedora 7.. running

# ./configure --prefix=/opt/mono

works fine, but doing the make

# make ; make install

ends up with the following:

Makefile:93: warning: overriding commands for target `csproj-local'
../build/executable.make:131: warning: ignoring old commands for target `csproj-local'
make install-local
make[6]: Entering directory `/opt/mono-2.6.4/mcs/mcs'

I've been following the instructions at http://ruakuu.blogspot.com/2008/06/installing-and-configuring-opensim-on.html.

This is all in an effort to get OpenSimulator running.

Fedora 7 is a little bit ancient. You may want to consider moving up to 12. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams May 6 '10 at 23:50
It's GoDaddy VPS hosting.. didn't have much choice. :/ –  Gary May 7 '10 at 0:07

and yeah I do check old comments but not very offen, I see you're trying to do this on a Fedora 7, I haven't tested there yet, Im also stuck with a fedora 5 on my dedicated. And about your problem, this could be anything from a missing dependency to a bug on the sources, what you can try is building and older build or a more recent one, did you try the default mono install that comes with your Fedora7? If it wasn't installed try using yum to get it, if not try what I told you first. Hope this helps
