[Mono-list] installing complete mono framework on CentOS 4.3

I used to have the same issue when using Fedora 4.  The solution that 
finally worked for me was simply to install the "mono-data-sqlite" rpm 
using rpm's forced install parameter...  (I've forgotten the exact 
command line that I used.)  Once this is done, mono-complete will 
install correctly.

BTW, mono-complete is a virtual package that simply references *ALL* of 
the mono rpms, include mono-data-sqlite, thats why it wont install.

I don't use Sqlite in any of my projects, so I don't know if this breaks 
the Sqlite install.

IIRC the current Fedora 4 rpms don't have this dependency issue.  I 
can't say for sure, I've moved to FC-5 which has mono included.

Hope this helps,
