I want to install the mono RPM like it would be if I installed it through yum. What I mean is that when you install the rpm it puts everything in /opt/novell/. I want it to put in /usr/bin/, etc like yum does.

yum is not responsible for where the files are placed; that is determined when the package is built. If you want to change this then you'll need to get the SRPM, modify it, and rebuild it.

So yum doesn't use the same rpms? Do you know of a yum repo with 2.10.1? – Will Apr 12 '11 at 19:07
yum doesn't care about the RPMs; it will install what it is instructed to install. The problem is with the RPMs themselves. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 12 '11 at 19:12
