Hi Peter,

I hate to say this, but I tried installing from go-mono.com in yast on
suse 10.0 x86_64, and it worked :(  One difference is that I didn't have
the dvd installation source configured.  In fact, when I tried it, I
didn't have any installation sources except mono.

That being the case, it sounds like a yast bug (ie: 14 instances
definitely shouldn't be added).

But, I'm curious to know why the go-mono.com source didn't add
correctly, yet the opensuse.org repo did?  Could you attach output from
the yast logs of when it tries to add the go-mono.com repo?

As for the rpms in the suse build service, you probably tried installing
during the update for 1.2.4, which I was doing yesterday.  In fact,
here's the updated mono-basic rpm:


If you give the build service rpms another shot, it should work.

You should never have to 'force' the installs of any mono rpms.  If so,
that's a bug.
