During the last Novell HackWeek, me, Torello Querci and Jae Stutzman work a little on Mono packages for Maemo, we also worked a little on Tomboy port to Maemo. Last weekend I just released latest Mono for Maemo packages, the news include WinForms, ADO.NET, and Maemo-Sharp for Maemo 4 (OS2008).
If you want to play a little with the packages just add this repository to your N810:
deb http://go-mono.com/maemo chinook test
Sometimes pictures say more than a thousand words:
And whoever wants to run Tomboy on N8xx devices, this is the one click install.
Packages are in test repositories for now because I am not sure about the way how we make packages available, looks a little hard to manage lots of small packages, we have now about 30 mono packages, we use the same package conventions of Mono for Debian/Ubuntu but maybe that is not the best way, as example, Python is distributed for Maemo in only one big package.
One big package looks bad for me so, my idea is to have only few packages and only Mono 2.0 (gmcs) stuff available:
- mono-system (including libralies, maemo-sharp and gtk-sharp)
