[Mono-list] New Suse?

I just got mod-mono working and I thought it was extremely difficult.  It
doesn't install itself using the Red Carpet RPMs.  When I tried to compile
from the binary code, I kept getting an error saying it could not find a
file named "httpd2-prefork.conf".  When you install Apache 2 from the RPMs,
it gives that file the name of "loadmodule.conf" and puts it in a subfolder
with the name of "/etc/appache2/sysconfig.d".  I had to copy the
"loadmodule.conf" file to the Apache 2 "/etc/apache2" folder and rename it
"httpd2-prefork.conf" to get the binary code to compile correctly.  Even
after that, I got some extra lines in the "httpd2-prefork.conf" file that I
had to remove before Apache 2 would start up on reboot.  I found this whole
process extremely difficult.

Mono itself installed easily using Red Carpet and the RMPs.  Monodoc and
MonoDevelop work just fine as soon as the RMPs are installed.

Getting mod-mono to work is a completely different situation.  It's
extremely difficult.

I'm wondering if now that I have everything working I can rename the
"httpd2-prefork.conf" file back to "loadmodule.conf" and put it back in the
"/etc/apache2/sysconfig.d" folder.

It also requires changing the name and path of the file in the "httpd.conf"
file, which it says you shouldn't do if you ever want to upgrade the system.

Any thoughts?
