[Mono-list] 2 Questions

Just an FYI that the issue with the System.TypeLoadException is "solved."  I
was able to use the mono -aot option to compile, worked great on one hard
drive, absolutely died on another having something to do with a very cryptic
error message about types that were the same not being the same.  I removed
the section of code and it works now.

Hello All,


Thanks a lot for the help!  The links were very useful, and I am *almost* at
a debian package.  One really strange issue has come up though that I really
have no idea how to fix that I was hoping people might no something about
to.  My program runs well from a virtual box Ubuntu installation from a
drive shared between windows and linux.  However, when copied to a linux
drive, it fails with:


Unhandled Exception: System.TypeLoadException: A type load exception has

[ERROR] FATAL UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: System.TypeLoadException: A type load
exception has occurred.


It appears I can't trace this because with the -v option it looks like it is
getting an out of memory error while trying to unwind the stack.  My hunch
from google is that this is the result of a case sensitivity issue, but all
the reference file names seem to be of the right case sensitivity.  Has
anyone encountered something like this before?  Any idea how I can see which
type isn't loading?


Thanks again for the help so far,
