Hi Duncan!

I've noticed some packaging errors for Fedora Core 1&2:

1. I downloaded for Fedora Core 2 (for machine which had
mono-1.0 installed):

After unpacking I tried:

[root at fw] # rpm -Uhv *.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        bytefx-data-mysql = 1.0.1-1.ximian.8.1 is needed by
        ibm-data-db2 = 1.0.1-1.ximian.8.1 is needed by

The zip file doesn't contain the required components. I couldn't find them
on the web page either.

After I moved away mono-complete-1.0.1-1.ximian.8.1.i386.rpm the rpm upgrade
of the remaining packages succeeded.

2. On another machine (Fedora Core 1 without mono) I downloaded the
appropriate and got:

[root at vector mono-1.0.1]# rpm -Uhv *.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        cairo >= 0.1.23-2 is needed by libgdiplus-1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1
        bytefx-data-mysql = 1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1 is needed by
        ibm-data-db2 = 1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1 is needed by
        mono(atk-sharp) >= is needed by monodoc-1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1
        mono(gdk-sharp) >= is needed by monodoc-1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1
        mono(glade-sharp) >= is needed by monodoc-1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1
        mono(glib-sharp) >= is needed by monodoc-1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1
        mono(gtk-sharp) >= is needed by monodoc-1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1
        mono(gtkhtml-sharp) >= is needed by
        mono(pango-sharp) >= is needed by monodoc-1.0.1-1.ximian.7.1

In addition to bytefx and db2 providers, the zip file doesn't contain GTK#
required by monodoc.

3. I also attempted to install mod-mono, but looks like the apache component
is missing:

[root at vector mono-1.0.1]# rpm -qlp *.rpm | grep mod

Notice that there's a mod-mono-server.exe file but there's no matching
apache module "". Is there any RPM available which contains ?

4. When you compare:

You'll notice that many packages are missing in the 1.0.1 release. Is v1.0.1
supposed to be installed over 1.0.0 as an upgrade-only option?
