Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 9.04
Release: 9.04

When installing this package inside our netboot tree, the following happens:

This in fact hinders *any* installation of mono packages inside a chroot. Mounting /proc is no option, as this might interfere with the running system (we have Debian Etch Servers providing the netboot-roots for ubuntu hardy and jaunty clients and have had some pretty bad experiences while installing packages with /proc mounted inside the chroot).

Sorry for the briefness of this report but I believe you get the picture.
