Hi Paul -

    RedHat 9 , 2.4.20-6 .

    For those following the unfolding drama (of me getting a s.w.f gui 
to run), I made more progress after `cp /usr/local/lib/libgdiplus.so* 
/usr/lib` .

    Then the gui started, but quickly died , evidently due to the 
absense of  MonoPosixHelper .

[root at isslx3 dotNET]# rpm -i 
/download/mono-posix-1.0.1-1.ximian.8.1.i386.rpm   # I know, I'm not 
using FC2, so it shouldn't work
error: Failed dependencies:
        mono(System) >= 1.0.5000.0 is needed by 
        mono(mscorlib) >= 1.0.5000.0 is needed by 
[root at isslx3 dotNET]# pkg-config --modversion mono
[root at isslx3 dotNET]#

    Does mono1.1.1 have enough to provide for these mono(System) & 
mono(mscorlib) dependencies ? 

    Is there a way to persuade rpm of this ? --force didn't work.

    I settled for mono-posix-0.96-1.ximian.6.2.i386.rpm , which rpm 
didn't object to.

    Then at runtime I found I was missing map_Mono_Posix_PollEvents 
(evidently newer than 0.96 ?).

    I picked up the latest snapshot and saw map_Mono_Posix_PollEvents 
there (in Syscall.cs).  But the Syscall.cs in my 1.1.1 also has it.

    Guidance ?
