I installed the latest mono release on Suse 10.1 last weekend using the rpms from the download page and it all works well.You might try uninstalling the one you have and go that route. I think the package installer while easier is not the best way to go.

First install the verison of mono that ships with Suse 10. then unzip the mono files and development files.
>From the terminal cd into the directory containing the rpms and do 
sudo rpm -Uvh *.rpm

this will work in all of the except the devtools one. In that you'll get an error about gecko so install the other rpms 1 at a time with
sudo rpm -Uvh filename.rpm

be sure and install boo as MonoDevelop seems to need this or you get a unix socket error when it tries to launch.

Hope it helps,

Subject: [Mono-dev] newbie installing 1.1.16 onto SUSE 10.1

   We have just hired a summer placement to start the process of transitioning our application to Mono. We’re using SUSE 10.1.
   We have successfully compiled a basic “hello world” app and run it but when we add a reference to System.Data into the application, we get the compilation error that the type or namespace “Data” (or if we try “Xml”) does not exist in the name “System”.
   We’ve looked at the environment variables (PATH, MONO_PATH) and suspect this to be the problem because none are set.
   We installed using the Linux Package installer for x86 (latest – 1.1.16) from the mono-project downloads site.
   So, several questions:
   What is the full set of environment variables we should set and to what values?
   Where is this documented (so we can start looking in the right place)?
   If that is not the issue, any ideas on what is?
