What exactly is the error? mono-complete is a valid debian package. Regards, Hari Krishna Indian Institute of Science

The package does not exist. Which probably means there are some binaries which have not yet been ported to ARM. *OR* hold one. . .. Yeap, the above commands were issues on the BBB while the below issued on my i386 support system. william [ at ] debian:~$ sudo apt-cache search mono-complete So the package does not exist for the ARM platform.

"mono" hasn't been ported to debian's "armhf" subarch yet. It does exist in the "armel" archives. Someone put up a howto guide on github on building mono on wheezy armhf, it just escapes me a the moment where it was. Regards,

Ok I stand corrected. I keep forgetting about armel and armhf differences ( mainly because I only use armhf ). I did also want to mention that in package form mono runtimes are rather limited for armhf. But I also have seen this github guide Robert mentioned above. Personally, I gave up on it long ago and moved to Nodejs. Since Node.js satisfies all my own needs.
