When installing mono, the installation fails towards the end with a Segmentation fault (see attachment)
HW: Raspberry Pi Model B+
OS: Raspbian 2015-05-05 (default installation, no extra packages installed)
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list
apt-get install mono-complete
"mono" and "mcs" also produce a Segmentation fault after installation has completed with error.

Can you help us here?
mono-project.com packages are built for ARMv7, Pi model B is ARMv6. Buy a Pi 2, or rebuild the source packages
Shouldn't the package refuse to installation when it is for a different CPU?
Are there any instructions available how to rebuild the source packages - I'm not a linux expert.
I've seen various post of people try to build 3.10 and 3.12 on RP without success.
It should refuse... But the Raspbian developers re used the "armhf" architecture name with different meaning, so there's no way for Apt to tell the difference
