Hi Jochen,
Installing LibICU should resolve this problem.
Try reinstalling it once again and compile your mcs code.
If the problem still persists, better post it on Mono list.
I have not installed .30 yet and not aware if there is any particular =
thing that needs to be addressed.

Hi Arniban!

Well, today, I've updated to mono-0.30 and also had to install ICU before =
installing mono.
But the errors keeps :(

What do I have to do?

Hi Anirban!

I've tested the same application in C# and mcs compiled successfully. =
That's why it's something mbas internal, I think.

ICU is International Components for Unicode developed by IBM.
This takes care of different locales and culture.

Hi Anirban,

What is ICU? I've installed mono 0.29 and also got the today's mcs out of =
CVS and compiled the complete mcs sources.

Hi Jochen,
Have you got ICU installed in your machine?
If not install it and compile mbas.
Then try compiling your program. It should work.

Hi Rafael!

Maybe you already know that when compiling following lines with mbas, I =
get the attached error:
Public Module Test
Public Sub Main()
        System.Console.WriteLine ("Hello world!") End Sub End Module

The error:
[root@redhat mono-dev]# mbas test.vb
System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type =
initializer for Mono.MonoBASIC.Tokenizer --->

By the way: what about the automatic Imports? Does it work?
