+Version: unspecified
+OS: other
+OS Details: RH Fedora 2 (not on form's OS list?)

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: dies if exact gtkhtml-3.0 library can't be found with useless message
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+gtkhtml-3.0 (.9) not included in all-mono.zip but FC2 ships with 3.0.10.
+Mono looks for libgtkhtml-3.0.so.2* (3.0.9) while 3.0.10 installs library
+as libgtkhtml-3.0.so.4*. When trying to start, monodoc gives an useless
+error message that does not hint of what failed to load. Tedious to find cause.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Install FC2, installs gtkhtml-3.0.10
+2. D/L all-mono.zip
+3. install everything, --nodepend when it whines about gtkhtml-3.0.9
+4. try to start monodoc
+Wrote a shell and perl script that traverses down /usr/lib/mono/eac
+and checks if every *.dll.config file's target="" can be found in
+ldconfig -v output. Perl version runs pretty fast. Shows suggestions
+for bad references. Gets prefix for base directory from 'which monodoc' and
+inspection of that shell script, so pretty portable. Might help some newbe
+if it was called on first run or following error? Also, would be nice if
+error message showed path of missing dependancy...
+P.S. form's OS list does not show Fedora 1 or 2...
