Hi, i'm new to linux and mono,  i'm trying to do my home work on linux 
and mono.

I need to develop a simple software that just connects to a database 
made in oracle (10g), but it can't connects to oracle server (running on 
local machine), and everytime i receive this error:

Unhandled Exception: System.DllNotFoundException: libclntsh.so

Can somebody help me?

i need to do this because i'm learning this stuff in my college and i 
don't want to move to Microsoft plataform and work with Visual Studio.

i've already runed the oracle_env script and set my variables up.

Oracle Client is instaled, the server is running too. I can connect with 
the Application Express (my browser) and with sqlplus* but not with Mono.

Distro: Fedora 7
My Kernel is 2.6.21
Mono version: 1.2.4
Mono Data Oracle:  1.2.4.novell
Oracle: 10g (10)
$ORACLE_HOME PATH = /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/client
