[Mono-list] Important note for SUSE 9.3 Gtk#2 users

If you are on SUSE 9.3 and downloaded the latest Gtk# development
release, this is an important note for you.

We've decided that we do *not* want to package 2.5.x for now, and that
the only Gtk# 2 version we will provide rpms for is 1.9.x. This means
that you have a package of gtk# on your computer that is newer (in
version number) than the ones we will be providing in the future.

To fix this, you need to do the following:

rug rm gtk-sharp2
rug ref
rug in gtk-sharp2

If you want to do this without using rug, you can also do:

rpm -Uhv --oldpackage <LOCATION OF 1.9.x RPM>

You can download the 1.9.x rpm from our website, which is now updated.

Sorry about this little bump.

PS: RPM know-it-alls might comment "hey, just set an epoch". I did not
want to do that, because it will complicate things for people using
distros that ship rpms for gtk#2 (like SUSE will in the future), for
those using the DAG repo, etc.
