Subject RE: Makefile for *nix platforms to build Lucene.Net with Mono
Date Mon, 18 May 2009 13:15:39 GMT
I had downloaded the preinstalled Mono development suite, VMWare virtual machine, from their
web site.  I would expect this to show case, the best set of Mono tools and demo applications
that exist.
But no, pjr2make fails as described.
I also tried the latest downloadable package for Mac OS X; with lots of effort I was able
to compile Lucene, but along the way many limitations of the Mono environment became apparent.
For non Microsoft.NET platforms, it seems Java Lucene offers a better solution.

prj2make should work just fine unless you're running an official
Debian Mono. The Debian maintainers are still packaging an ancient
prj2make in place of the current one.
