[MonoDevelop] References and the GAC
Wed, 24 Nov 2004 12:56:53 -0800
You have not installed this properly. For it to resolve properly there
are 1 of 2 things that need to happen.
1) It is in the same directory as mcs.
2) It has a .pc file that has a Libs: line that references it (what mcs
uses for -pkg syntax).
MonoDevelop basically simulates mcs as far as assembly resolving. The
'GAC' is not used at compile time, but we basically simulate it, because
anything in your 'GAC' is referenced at compile time by one of the two
In my install (and any install from rpms, etc) Npgsql.dll is in the gac
with a symlink in /usr/lib/mono/1.0. This is where MD finds Npgsql (just
like where mcs would find it).
