      Ensure that the assembly file name is "MySql.Data.dll". Check
      its casing twice and reinsert it into the GAC.
      The connector used to be distributed as "mysql.data.dll", which
      is not the proper file name casing under case-sensitive
      file systems.

    I did think about the case when trying to use "using ..."  even so
    far as to use copy-and-paste.  The case is "MySql.Data" in; 
    1. extracted zip file 
    2. /usr/lib/mono/gac/ 
    3. the /bin folder 
    4. when trying to use "using MySql.Data" in the code-behind page 
    I have tried re-inserting it a few times into the GAC using "sudo
    gacutil -i MySql.Data.dll" (while in the same directory) and
    received the confirmation message. 
    I just tried downloading mysql-connector-net-6.3.6-noinstall,
    and inside that I find 2 directories; v2 and v4.  Inside both of
    those are more 4 (v4) or 5 (v2) .dll files; 
     1. mysql.data.cf.dll (in v2 directory only) 
     2. mysql.data.dll 
     3. mysql.data.entity.dll 
     4. mysql.visualstudio.dll 
     5. mysql.web.dll 
    Could one of these other .dll be better? Should I install the v2 or
    v4 version into the GAC?
