So you want to run windows .exe’s on your shiny Linux server, time to catch mono.

yum install bison gettext glib2 freetype fontconfig libpng libpng-devel libX11 libX11-devel glib2-devel libgdi* libexif glibc-devel urw-fonts java unzip gcc gcc-c++ automake autoconf libtool make bzip2 wget
 
cd /usr/local/src 
 
wget http://download.mono-project.com/sources/mono/mono-3.0.1.tar.bz2
 
tar jxf mono-3.0.1.tar.bz2
 
cd mono-3.0.1
 
./configure --prefix=/opt/mono
