when building Mono 3.12.0 for openSUSE, I get this error:

I need to debug to see what exactly goes wrong.

Comment 1 Timotheus Pokorra 2015-01-14 16:17:17 UTC
Building on OBS did not install the timezone package by default.
timezone provides the file /etc/localtime.
I needed to add the timezone package to the required packages for the build.
