- Mono(tm) Binary Kernel Support for Linux
- -----------------------------------------
-To configure Linux to automatically execute Mono-based .NET binaries
-(in the form of .exe files) without the need to use the mono CLR
-wrapper, you can use the BINFMT_MISC kernel support.
-This will allow you to execute Mono-based .NET binaries just like any
-other program after you have done the following:
-1) You MUST FIRST install the Mono CLR support, either by downloading
- a binary package, a source tarball or by installing from CVS. Binary
- packages for several distributions can be found at:
- Instructions for compiling Mono can be found at:
- Once the Mono CLR support has been installed, just check that
- /usr/bin/mono (which could be located elsewhere, for example
- /usr/local/bin/mono) is working.
-2) You have to compile BINFMT_MISC either as a module or into
- the kernel (CONFIG_BINFMT_MISC) and set it up properly.
- If you choose to compile it as a module, you will have
- to insert it manually with modprobe/insmod, as kmod
- cannot be easily supported with binfmt_misc.
- Read the file 'binfmt_misc.txt' in this directory to know
- more about the configuration process.
-3) Add the following entries to /etc/rc.local or similar script
- to be run at system startup:
-# Insert BINFMT_MISC module into the kernel
-if [ ! -e /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register ]; then
- /sbin/modprobe binfmt_misc
- # Some distributions, like Fedora Core, perform
- # the following command automatically when the
- # binfmt_misc module is loaded into the kernel
- # or during normal boot up (systemd-based systems).
- # Thus, it is possible that the following line
- # is not needed at all.
- mount -t binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc
-# Register support for .NET CLR binaries
-if [ -e /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register ]; then
- # Replace /usr/bin/mono with the correct pathname to
- # the Mono CLR runtime (usually /usr/local/bin/mono
- # when compiling from sources or CVS).
- echo ':CLR:M::MZ::/usr/bin/mono:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
- echo "No binfmt_misc support"
- exit 1
-4) Check that .exe binaries can be ran without the need of a
- wrapper script, simply by launching the .exe file directly
- from a command prompt, for example:
- /usr/bin/xsd.exe
- NOTE: If this fails with a permission denied error, check
- that the .exe file has execute permissions.
