[Mono-devel-list] Monodoc install problems

Hello, thanks for that.

Problem is, I don't seem to have the correct folder I don't think.

As I understand it, I need to have a folder mcs with another folder called
errors inside it (thus mcs/errors), is that correct, or am I mislead by the
error message saying directory not found(or is it looking for a file?).

I have copied my mcs folder to the monodoc folder, to one level above the
monodoc folder, and to a level above that, but it is still not finding what
it needs.  I have inspected the mcs folder, and it doesn't have a
cs-errors.config file, though I do have one in monodoc-0.7/class.

I am using Mono 0.28 and Monodoc 0.7.

My thoughts are either that something in the make process is either looking
for something in the wrong place, or I am missing a file/folder structure.

We should fix this makefile to be more resistant.

Anyways, Monodoc to build its docs expects to have the following layout:


So it can pull the error samples from mcs/errors
