Description Jamie Rees 2016-03-23 20:39:35 UTC
Hello,

I am writing a .Net web application using the Nancy framework.
I have spoken to the Nancy team and they have pointed me in this direction.

The issue is in the following Github issue: https://github.com/tidusjar/PlexRequests.Net/issues/50#issuecomment-200524140

Comment 1 Andi McClure 2016-04-05 21:04:54 UTC
From the Github issue linked, the issue filer says:

"@tidusjar if you look at the version of mono I had it was a 3.* version. The mono in the package is a 4.* version. I decided to upgrade to the latest mono in the package and it looks like it does work now."

Assigning to jamierees to clarify. Are you still seeing a problem? Do you see the problem with an up-to-date mono?
Comment 2 Jamie Rees 2016-05-27 10:05:35 UTC
I am again seeing this problem.

See here:

Comment 3 Marek Safar 2016-05-27 16:29:50 UTC
What OS is that?
Comment 4 Jamie Rees 2016-05-27 16:30:32 UTC
Ubuntu 14
Comment 5 Marek Safar 2016-05-30 08:44:09 UTC
There isn't much wrong. It looks like you don't have mono-mcs package (or similar package) installed.

Running 'mcs' from same shell should give you error as well.
