Midnight Commander Binaries

While normally binaries are provided by distributions who choose to ship mc along with their packages, we do provide binaries for several most popular distributions, mostly for reference and testing purposes. However, please be warned, that we do not offer any support for these. If you encounter any problems, you are generally going to be asked to rebuild the sources from current git master and check whether the problem is already fixed or not. Another rule of thumb is to always use search before opening new tickets.
