Rather than compiling from source, I was able to get monotone from
and installed it with no problems (debian, not ubuntu, but it
shouldn't matter).

sudo dpkg --install monotone_0.32-0.1_i386.deb

Thanks!  Especially for how to run the emulators.

As a beginner, directions like the ones you're working on and like the
ones at are
invaluable.  I suspect that once I know what I'm doing a one-line "use
this machine and this distro" will be very welcome.

Maybe putting this at the top of your recipe as an "if you've already
got openembedded working" section?
