I'm new at this and I need some help. These are my version infos:
Mono 2.10.9 (tarball)
Package version: 210090011
Apple Developer Tools:
Xcode 4.5.1 (1842)
Monotouch: 6.0.2 (Evaluation)
I have a monotouch solution that I would like to be able to build successfully in Xcode. I'm continuously getting the following error (2times):
Apple Mach-O Linker Error "_main", referenced from:

I noticed that creating a project in xcode I was able to build it.
Could someone please point me to the right direction?
Thanks for your time
You do not build from Xcode, you build from MonoDevelop.
The only part of Xcode being used is the Interface Builder. You can create your UI using this tool (or using code) and then save it. You then switch back to MonoDevelop to compile verything into a native application.
