[MonoDevelop] Linux Distro to Use

There are some dependancies that break yum update.  mono(pango...),
mono(gdk...), mono(gtk...) and one or two others.  For now I've gotten
it all working by removing from the rpm database so that yum update does
not check them.  Not the best solution but I'm very glad these FC5 rpms
have been made available.  Thanks to any and all involved!

        rpm -e --justdb gtksourceview-sharp2-0.10-3.novell

There's also a strange artifact of installing monodevelop and/or its
necessary dependencies that breaks MIME behavior on FC5.   Using the
Smart Package Manager its a relatively easy solution to use its
'reinstall' feature on gnome-vfs2, gnome-mime-data and shared-mime-info
which seems to repair the damage.  Several people have experienced this
problem and posted on fedoraforum.org so it's not just my system.  I
don't have enough detail to submit a bug report and it's (now all)
working for me; just thought I'd mention it...

While I'm at it...  Does anybody know why FedoraExtras didn't sync with
monodevelop as Fedora rolled out Mono with FC5?  It's clearly not a
technical issue since Paul Johnson provided at least one path (circa
monodevelop 0.10) and even these un-tuned rpms work well enough.  It's
been a couple of weeks since I checked on the progress of having
monodevelop in Extras, but it hasn't happened yet and FC6 Test1 release
is just around the corner.  Odd.

And, I should take this opportunity to say how thrilled I am that
monodevelop now provides a gui designer.  Also the progress on this
package is phenomenal. Kudos and Thanks!
