going from gutsy gibbon to hardy heron...or: muawhaha, mono is hosed...

just thought i’d let you participate in today’s adventure: triggered by ansgar commenting on ubuntu offering him to upgrade to ubuntu 8.04 “hardy heron” i though, “hmm, good idea, let’s do a quick update”…

…well, a couple of hours later i seemed to be back in business, hardy heron was installed on “my” x60 and i was just about do another OpenSim build — when i noticed that nant was seg faulting! now, wait a moment, it clearly was not supposed to do that. ok, can happen, what with new libs and all that. so, let’s walk on over to /usr/local/src/mono/nant-0.86b and do a re-install. should be easy, peasy…

…except it wasn’t: mono’s compiler mcs kept seg faulting as well! hmmm.

ok. let’s reinstall mono. following my own script i started the re-install — which crashed as well after about 5min of mucking around.

panic stations!

googling around it transpired that this would happen when running hardy heron with a custom compiled kernel of pre-2.6.24 vintage — which i was :-(

i’m happy to report that with 2.6.25 mono is running again :-)
