Description Chris Morgan 2015-07-09 09:15:17 UTC
I've seen the issue here on Fedora 22.

Issue appears to be that under a parallel build the same files are installed multiple times and this is caught as an error.

An email from another person who ran into the same issue when building mono under Yocto:

A race was observed during `make install` of mono-native under

/usr/bin/install: cannot change permissions of
.NETFramework/v4.5/RedistList/FrameworkList.xml: No such file or

This is definitely a race, because FrameworkList.xml was present once
the failed build completed.

The present mono build doesn't appear to build much of anything in
parallel in the first place, and I would guess that this issue applies
equally to the mono and mono-native builds. So the correct place for the
workaround ought to be in the shared .inc file.

I'm not aware of any lingering issues with high -j values. They definitely used to exist.
