I think my previous message didn't make it to the list - here it is again...

Hey Colt,

I was stuck on the very same problem. Here's what I gathered so far:
1. you can include MySql.Data in the bin folder of your app, however...
2. mono will complain about ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll: include that too but...
3. there seems to be a bug in MySql.Data that will make your app crash...

I googled a bit and it seems that that's been fixed in cvs, but not in
release so I'm downloading 1.0.5 (I got 1.0.4 right now) in the hope
that it works - I really can't rebuild mono right now...

Well, you maybe luckier than me and get it sorted: keep posting if you
get any further!

Ciao - Fabio

That seems to fix it - I get an access denied error now...

Ciao - Fabio
