[Mono-list] Using System.Data.Common.DbProviderFactory with Mono

I am trying to create an application which should be designed for common
database connectivity. Therefore I used the
System.Data.Common.DbProviderFactory. I created my application in Visual
Studio and then tried to run it under Mono. I also tested it with Moma which
gave me the go-ahead in any cases. In .Net everything worked fine but under
Mono it threw a weired exception.

Unhandled Exception: System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException:
Failed to find or load the registered .Net Framework Data Provider. () ()
  at System.Data.Common.DbProviderFactories.GetFactory (System.Data.DataRow
providerRow) [0x00000]
  at System.Data.Common.DbProviderFactories.GetFactory (System.String
providerInvariantName) [0x00000]
  at Connectivity.DBLoader.Load () [0x00000]

I tried to google this one but without any success.

The code looks like this:

using System.Data.OracleClient;
using System.Data.Common;

DbProviderFactory factory = DbProviderFactories.GetFactory(providerString);               
                using (conn = factory.CreateConnection())
                    conn.ConnectionString = ConnectionParameter;
                    // Here the data from the database is processed.


Is there anything I did not consider or is it impossible to procede like
this under Mono in general?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Best regard,
