It's always nice to answer your own questions ;-)

Solved the second part of my question (libicu dependencies),
I will explain how, it might be useful for others:

Mono 1.0.6 is dependend on version 2.6 of the Unicode 'libicu' library.
The libicu version supplied in the Fedora Extras repository is
version 3.2. However, the 'DAG APT Repository' supplies version 2.6.

The URL for the DAG repository for your yum.conf is:


Supposing that you use the example yum.conf from www.fedorafaq.orf:


You can issue the following command to install version 2.6 of libicu:

   yum --enablerepo=dag --disablerepo=extras install libicu

If you want to prevent that libicu is updated to version 3.0 with the
next 'yum update', add the following line to yum.conf:


Now you should be able to install Mono from the 1.0.6. FC3 yum repo.

Hope this is helpful.

Kind regards,

Danny Brugman
