   1               Mono(tm) Binary Kernel Support for Linux
   2               -----------------------------------------
   3
   4To configure Linux to automatically execute Mono-based .NET binaries
   5(in the form of .exe files) without the need to use the mono CLR
   6wrapper, you can use the BINFMT_MISC kernel support.
   7
   8This will allow you to execute Mono-based .NET binaries just like any
   9other program after you have done the following:
  10
  111) You MUST FIRST install the Mono CLR support, either by downloading
  12   a binary package, a source tarball or by installing from CVS. Binary
  13   packages for several distributions can be found at:
  14
  15        http://go-mono.com/download.html
  16
  17   Instructions for compiling Mono can be found at:
  18
  19        http://www.go-mono.com/compiling.html
  20
  21   Once the Mono CLR support has been installed, just check that
  22   /usr/bin/mono (which could be located elsewhere, for example
  23   /usr/local/bin/mono) is working.
  24
  252) You have to compile BINFMT_MISC either as a module or into
  26   the kernel (CONFIG_BINFMT_MISC) and set it up properly.
  27   If you choose to compile it as a module, you will have
  28   to insert it manually with modprobe/insmod, as kmod
  29   cannot be easily supported with binfmt_misc. 
  30   Read the file 'binfmt_misc.txt' in this directory to know
  31   more about the configuration process.
  32
  333) Add the following entries to /etc/rc.local or similar script
  34   to be run at system startup:
  35
  36# Insert BINFMT_MISC module into the kernel
  37if [ ! -e /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register ]; then
  38        /sbin/modprobe binfmt_misc
  39        # Some distributions, like Fedora Core, perform
  40        # the following command automatically when the
  41        # binfmt_misc module is loaded into the kernel.
  42        # Thus, it is possible that the following line
  43        # is not needed at all. Look at /etc/modprobe.conf
  44        # to check whether this is applicable or not.
  45        mount -t binfmt_misc none /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc
  46fi
  47
  48# Register support for .NET CLR binaries
  49if [ -e /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register ]; then
  50        # Replace /usr/bin/mono with the correct pathname to
  51        # the Mono CLR runtime (usually /usr/local/bin/mono
  52        # when compiling from sources or CVS).
  53        echo ':CLR:M::MZ::/usr/bin/mono:' > /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc/register
  54else
  55        echo "No binfmt_misc support"
  56        exit 1
  57fi
  58
  594) Check that .exe binaries can be ran without the need of a
  60   wrapper script, simply by launching the .exe file directly
  61   from a command prompt, for example:
  62
  63        /usr/bin/xsd.exe
  64
  65   NOTE: If this fails with a permission denied error, check
  66         that the .exe file has execute permissions.
