The only reliable way to watch Netflix movies on Linux at the moment is to order the DVD. Netflix requires support for Silverlight 2, however Moonlight only supports Silverlight 1 technology at the moment. The roadmap says that beta support for Silverlight 2 will be debuted in September.

You can install Mono side-to-side with any .NET Framework version. There is no interference between two of them.

Execution of binaries in the Linux kernel is controlled via the binfmt_misc module (short for “miscellaneous binary formats”). The way it works is that the kernel looks at the first few bytes of the file and sees if there is a “magic number” that characterizes a known file format. The idea is that if the kernel sees the magic number of a .NET executable, it ...

I would put a link or a script in /usr/local/bin A link if all you need to do to start foo.exe is to type the full path /my/path/foo.exe. You on the other hand would need a small shell script that calls mono /path/to/foo.exe.

Mono ships with a number of command line tools including the compiler (mcs), the interpreter (mint), and of course mono to name the main tools. Assuming you mean mono itself, simply run: mono -V or mono --version

There is no such thing as a new bytecode for .NET 4. I have no idea where you heard that, but it does not exist. The only thing that exists are new libraries versioned at 4.0, and for that, you do need a new Mono (2.8 or 2.10) that come with the equivalent versioned libraries.

It's really simple: Download the current version from here: http://keepass2.openix.be You get KeePass2.20.1.pkg file (3.4 MB) - double-ckick this file to start the Installer Confirm the License and the default destination You are ready: find kindly the KeePass App in "Applications" folder! The problems reported on the KeePass forum have been ...

I have tried to use Keepass on OSX, but it doesn't work very well; it is slow as hell and crashes all the time. I ended up getting KyPass Companion from the AppStore. It works very well and supports both Keepass 1 and 2 databases. The downside of KyPass for some people might be that it's not free.

Using Automator to save the following as an Application works fine for me, also for new files: Start Automator In "Choose a template for your workflow" choose "Application" Drag the action "Run Shell Script" into the workflow in the pane at the right Change "Pass input" from "to stdin" into "as arguments" Replace echo "$f" with mono "$f" &. So: for f ...

Sounds like you should be able to use a screen session. If you are unfamiliar with the screen tool, check out the man pages or visit this link: http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/07/screen-command-examples/ First, install it with "pacman -S screen". Then start a new session with "screen mono KMPServer.exe", perform all you need to do and detach the session ...

I would use the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard as a guide and install your package in /opt/package_name and place your wrapper script in /usr/local/bin or allow the user to configure these choices and generate the wrapper script at install-time based on those choices. An alternative would be to put the wrapper script in the same directory as the application ...

I realize downloading a premade VM image is convenient, but I suggest going to the source and installing it yourself. I suggest using only 1 partition for everything. This way you can give it a comparatively small drive (to save space on the host machine) and not worry about issues where one partition fills and another is empty.

dasBlog on mono - dont think so (third party libraries?) migrate active directory - ive never been able to do this,, but the last time i tried this was about 2 years ago No, RDP is microsofts proprietary protocol. X Server & VNC is all you got. File sharing - Samba will take care of it should be doable, but i think u need to adress #1-4 above first./

Use an alias put something like alias foo='mono /path/to/foo.exe' into the users shell initialisation file.

On the Mac, applications try to follow the system wide language preference provided that they have the corresponding localization. So, the easiest way to change the menu language in MonoDevelop without changing the system preferences is to remove or rename the German localization so that the app will fall back to using the US menus. To do this: ...

MonoDevelop 2.4 has an option in Preferences to override the GUI language.

The easiest way is: sudo apt-get install monodevelop in the terminal. This installs MonoDevelop 1.0 on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid).

It looks like the latest version in the official repos is 2.4. So you've got a couple of options. If you're just using it temporarily you can download a virtual machine or live CD which has the latest build on it from the Mono download page. However, if a VM or live CD will not do, you may have to compile Mono from source.

CentOS is a binary-compatible mirror of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. So if your desktop and the server line up exactly (32- vs 64-bit, same version [RHEL 5 update 4 vs CentOS 5.4], same RPMs installed), then it should be possible to just take the files you built on the CentOS machine and copy them to the corresponding location on the Red Hat machine, and it ...

CentOS is binary-compatible with RHEL at the same version, so after making sure that the dependencies are installed, copying the binaries will be enough.

You'll need to run the program with the appropriate environment variables to tell gettext which translation to load/use. Here is some documentation on gettext environment variables. LANGUAGE=en_US would be a good place to start, unfortunately I don't have an OSX machine to verify, let us know what works.

If your cpu has virtualization built into it, you can watch movies via Virtualbox running XP.

The simplest way is with a Bash alias. I'm not sure if it's normal practice to add an alias to profile files though.

According to the Mono project's compatibility page, Mono 2.8 can already run .NET 4 programs, albeit without some of the more advanced functionality.
