Description Salvo Tomaselli 2016-11-22 14:08:14 UTC
Installing mono-complete on fedora, from your repositories, will create a /usr/lib64/libmono-2.0.a that is a broken link.

I would prefer if /usr/lib64/libmonosgen-2.0.a was shipped too, so that mkbundle can create static binaries that do not require mono as an external dependency. But in any case, if that is not possible, please remove the broken link instead.
