I am having a problem when I try to run C# executables (compiled with mono C# compiler at 10.10 server) inside a chroot jail. In order to run the executable inside the jail I need to include the proper libraries. To do that I use ldd for C, C++, Pascal and other languages. Unfortunately this won't work for C# files ("ldd hello.exe" states that hello.exe is not a dynamic executable). Which libraries do C# executables use? Or do you know how ca I find them?

Almost everything that you're looking for is in :


It would be hard to only get parts of it, so you might try putting them all in the chroot. For a list of the mono packages, do :

sudo aptitude search mono
