Mono on Solaris

Does anyone know where pre-built Mono packages for Solaris can be downloaded?

I built the source distribution from, but it took a long time, and some things (like networking) don't work.

I have a Sun Blade 1000 (64-bit SPARC) running Solaris 9.

I'd say if you already have it building, turn it into a project and get it linked to in the volunteers section of the mono download page. Someone will come along and fix whatever problems you have. That's the beauty of open source!

What's more, I don't know if you want it, but you'd earn a name for yourself in the community and down the line when you're tearing your hair out after running into some strange quirk you'll have plenty of people willing to aid you.

Just a suggestion.. I looked and the "volunteer" debian premades seem to be a very popular project.

Good luck!
