Hi, I installed mono via Apache Update (Easy::Apache) in WHM (cPanel) which
downloaded mod_mono 1.9, i then enabled ASP 2.0 for Mono as per: 

I then upload a simple ASP.net 2.0 application which fails to run, throwing
a System.DllNotFoundException: gdiplus.dll exception:

Server Error in '/test' Application


Description: HTTP 500. Error processing request.

Stack Trace: 

System.DllNotFoundException: gdiplus.dll
  at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Drawing.GDIPlus:GdiplusStartup
  at System.Drawing.GDIPlus..cctor () [0x00000]  

I have checked on this link but unfrotunatly I cant even find libgdiplus.so
anywhere on my system, /usr/local/lib/, or otherwise.


On checking mono-test-install it also fails:

root at host [~]# /home/cpeasyapache/src/mono-1.9.1/scripts/mono-test-install
Active Mono:
Warning: pkg-config could not find mono installed on this system
No dotnet pkgconfig found, Windows.Forms, System.Drawing and others will not

I'm not supprised its failing given the above file is missing, but my
question relates to resolving this in a WHM installed environment. Am i
better to remove mono in Easy::Apache and install this manually via 'yum',
or are there other options for getting libgdiplus.so onto my system?

Many thanks in advance,
