I'm glad to hear you can build Mono now.  Can you run it?

How about your Npgsql provider?  Can it run on Mono and successfully
connect to a PostgreSQL database?

Hi Daniel.
Good news!

No problem, thanks. I will be setting up my
subscription to the mono-list also!

Yes, the rpm I got from mono.baselabs.org include the
System.Web, System and other assemblies. Is missing
the System.Windows.Forms.

But with it I could get farther. :)

First, the list file is separating directories with
'\' and this caused the compiler to not found files. I
changed to '/' and it started to work.
There were some missing files in the list file. I
added them. They are DataRowBuilder.cs, ParmUtil.cs,
SqlInfoMessageEventHandler.cs and

With this modifications I started to get more 'normal'
errors: CS0507: 'XPathNavigator
CreateNavigator(XmlNode).CreateNavigator: can't change
the access modifiers from

So I think that everything is working now. This is a
good thing.

I could even get Npgsql compiled now after changing
removing the following code from

public Object this[String parameterName]
          return base[IndexOf(parameterName)];

the set property didn't compiled also giving me the
error CS0131: Left hand of an assignment must be a
variable, a property or an indexer.

But I think this errors are much better that what I
was receiving.

Yeah, I checked it. It is really very helpful.

Yes, I could now compile the tests with the RPMs.

Now, I will check later why mono.baselabs.org got a
working Mono runtime and libraries and I don't :(
I will keep trying to compile.

Thanks very much Daniel. You helped me a lot!!
At least I could get Mono working. I wasn't
remembering of the daily RPMs.
