Hello all!

i followed your advice, Eric, and uninstalled everything and reinstalled
Mono using the following procedures:
./configure --prefix=/opt/mono
make install

so now everything resides in /opt/mono 

export is now:


and $PATH is 


so, seems that everything is ok now! (well, at least some webservices and a
website are running correctly)

now, if i run my Windows Service using:


i get in /var/log/messages the following:

Aug  5 00:01:45 sip mono: GameServer: An exception was thrown by the type
initializer for System.Windows.Forms.XplatUI
Aug  5 00:01:45 sip mono: GameServer: Could not open display (X-Server
required. Check you DISPLAY environment variable) Parameter nam
e: Display

I do not have X-Server / XWindows running (this is a server machine, pure
text mode), and i've checked once again my code and there is nothing require
form controls (this is indeed a Windows Service...), BUT, i'm using a TIMER
control, which Type is System.Windows.Forms.Timer . 
Could there be a problem regarding Timer controls in Mono build ???
