Hello, Sorry for the late update, but I had some busy nights trying to find another work-around for the Snow Leopard crash. The 4.0.436 release of the Monobjc bridge has brought mixed results regarding the Snow Leopard crash: some users have reported success while others have reported nasty crashes.
So, I have resumed my work on the Mono runtime patching to find an acceptable way to do it (not too hacky so Novell would accept it). During my tests, I have discover that the conditions of the bug are already present under Leopard. Why it does not crash seems linked to the way TSD (Thread Specfic Data) are destroyed. So I have changed my approach and I have come to a workaround that seems to prevent the crash. The archive of the patched Mono runtime is available at: http://build.monobjc.net/releases/18.104.22.168_M/MonoFramework-22.214.171.124_M-universal.tar.bz2 In order to use the archive: - you need to have a working installation of Mono. - uncompress the archive in /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions - relink the Current symlink to the archive (sudo rm Current && sudo ln -s 126.96.36.199_M Current) Some points about this runtime: - The runtime is universal. I have made some tests under some OS/Processor combinations, but I cannot cover all hardware. - The runtime contains Mono, Visual Basic and NAnt. It does not contains libgdiplus or any of the third-party packages. - The runtime contains all what is needed to run mkbundle or the packaging tasks. - The runtime also contains other patches: embedded "machine.config" and "app.config" are now usable. If you decide to test this runtime, please provide the following: - hardware/system full version - kind of application/complexity - anything that can help in case of crash Regards, Laurent Etiemble.
