Steps to Reproduce this issue:
Condition: Xamarin.Android should installed on Machine.
1. Install MonoFramework on machine.
2. Create or open Android application.
3. Build the application.
Actual result: If user install Mono on machine having already Xamarin.Android installed and create or open Android application, Application giving build error which is mentioned in gist https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/deed68d63f580740d00a
Expected Result: Application should build successfully successfully.
NOT A REGRESSION: This is happening with stable environment Mono 2.10.12 and Xamarin.Android 4.6.8-7
An update to the issue:
If we uninstall X.Android and then again install Xamarin.Android, then it works fine
@narayanp: My guess is that /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild is being replaced on Mono.framework install, removing the /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Novell symlink.
Please repeat steps (0) and (1), then do:
$ ls -l /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/
I'll look into getting this fixed for 3.2.1
I tried to reproduce this, and it doesn't happen to me.
I installed 3.2.0 (https://wrench.internalx.com/Wrench/ViewLane.aspx?lane_id=650&host_id=1&revision_id=189534) and then a 3.2.2 master build (https://wrench.internalx.com/Wrench/ViewLane.aspx?lane_id=647&host_id=1&revision_id=193787) and my xbuild directory is intact.
Today I have checked this issue with following builds:
X.S 4.1.8(build 8)
We are still getting the same issue. To reproduce this issue Xamarin.Android should be installed on Machine and then install Mono and try to build the android application.
This is the gist of build error: https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/c31cf6b89be759ce62ce
I'm also unable to reproduce this one. What version of mono do you have installed *before* running the mono installer?
Could you please attach a screencast with the exact steps you are taking to reproduce this issue?
This is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/HxECGSpYHh to reproduce this issue.
Checked on following builds:
X.S 4.1.8(build 8)
Before this Mono was Mono 3.2.1 ((no/675bb0f)
Ok so the problem is that you're removing the Mono.Framework directory in /Library
This is not done when you simply install Mono again without removing that directory, and that's why peter and duncan could not reproduce.
It used to be done by the UninstallMono script that *used* to be included with the Mono .dmg, but that's not even included any longer.
At this point, the original description is incorrect. You must include a crucial step like deleting a folder, that omission wasted everyone's time here.
While I know it's weird that we have no true uninstaller for any of the products, this bug is definitely INVALID. You're deleting something directly that Xamarin.Android needs. Please take care to list *all* steps taken in bug descriptions.
