[Mono-list] New Suse?

Hi Carl,

When I tried to copy the httpd2-prefork.conf back to loadmodule.conf, it
appeared that Apache (or rather SuSE) overwrote the file without the mono
module line the next time I started Apache.

I just went ahead and placed the correct loadmodule line in the conf file
with all of my other mono application information.  We'll just have to
wait and see how well that goes next time I upgrade.  =)

Anyways, yes, it was a bit of a chore to get mod_mono working on SuSE, but
I only did so for the purpose of documenting the process on that platform.
 I have a tutorial hosted here:


Since you've already been through the process, this probably won't help
you, but I would appreciate any insight you have if you get a chance to

Thank you,

Joseph Hill
