Since https://github.com/xamarin/bockbuild/commit/4bf7d2ee28d5fd1c6c9c4cb0231f0cef8a8ac859 we moved to using /etc/path.d for adding Mono to the PATH on OSX instead of putting the symlinks in /usr/local/bin.
However, the installer doesn't clean the old symlinks up. We should try to delete those in postinstall (with appropriate safeguard measures should Apple decide to further lock down /usr/local).
since C8 is now closed, and is shipping this week, I will move this but to the C8SR1 milestone. We'll continue working on the issue seeking it's resolution as soon as possible.
Fixed in mono/bockbuild master and xamarin/bockbuild mono-4.8.0-branch.
@Alexis I don't see a commit in mono/bockbuild master, did you forget to push?
I have checked this with latest Cycle9 Mono 126.96.36.1993 and observed that on location /etc/path.d I am seeing mono-commands and on location /usr/local/bin, I am not seeing any mono. This is the screencast for the same: https://www.screencast.com/t/3545W4RLSPb
Please let me know if there is anything else to verify this Issue?
@Alexander, It would be great help If you put your comments for Comment4. If the Saurabh Scenario to verify this issue is correct. Then I think we are good to change the status of this bug as Verified.
@Shruti yes, it looks like this is working as intended in Mono 4.8. However I still don't see the relevant fix applied to the master branch in bockbuild.
I think it doesn't make sense to hold up verifying this bug for that though, I'll talk to Alexis separately. Changing status to Verified, thanks.
