[Mono-list] Understanding a bit how things work

First of all Carlos, thank you very much for working with me a bit
today. I am learning a few things and that is always good.
I have studied the Application_Deployment page and can run "gacutil
-l" and see what is available to mono. I also can run "xbuild
a.csprog" and it progresses till it cannot find "SlimDX".
I can also see that gacutil shows gtk-sharp and System.Windows.Forms,
so at least part of the required graphics stuff seems available, but
"SlimDX" is the current issue.
Going on a bit further, I can see that SlimDX instantiates a "Device"
and a "Line", where device = new Device(new Direct3D(), ...
So, at this point, I need to determine if there is a package in mono
that can provide the methods in "SlimDX" and if not, find something
similar and re-work all the methods.
