First install the dependencies, you’ll likely have some of them, but this is the full list needed to install mono.

yum install bison gettext glib2 freetype fontconfig libpng libpng-devel libX11 libX11-devel glib2-devel libgdi* libexif glibc-devel urw-fonts java unzip gcc gcc-c++ automake autoconf libtool make bzip2 wget

change directory to /usr/local/src:

cd /usr/local/src

get mono:


untar it (the j switch is because its a bz2 archive):

tar jxf mono-3.0.1.tar.bz2

descend into the mono directory:

cd mono-3.0.1


./configure --prefix=/opt/mono

make and make the installer:

make && make install


MONO should now be running on your Linux box
