Hi, MD-debugger-mdb is currently broken for rawhide. I've tried many ways to get it to build and have finally asked for help from the the md mailing list. The big problem is that we're using a system wide Mono.Cecil rather than individual packages having their own version of Mono.Cecil. Here's the conversation followed by a request from me... 8--> On Wed, Dec 23, 2009 at 4:14 PM, Paul <paul all-the-johnsons co uk> wrote: > I've got MD-2.2 installed from Fedora rawhide and am trying to build the > MD debugger plugin.

We use a local copy of Cecil because Cecil API is (was?) not guaranteed to be stable and therefor the library is *supposed* to be bundled with apps. This also allows us to rely on the exact behaviour of the version we ship. By upgrading MD's Cecil to one it has not been tested with, Fedora is potentially exposing their users to bugs that we will be unable to reproduce and fix. See http://www.mono-project.com/Cecil#Using_Cecil <--8 Given this, should we change the approach we currently have for using the system wide Mono.Cecil and allow the likes of MD to ship with it's own version of Mono.Cecil? Mono.Cecil is not added into GAC so having different versions of Mono.Cecil for different applications should not cause conflicts. "Should" is being used in it's lightest sense! TTFN Paul P.S. Going off until Boxing Day now, so Merry Christmas to you all! -- Sie können mich aufreizen und wirklich heiß machen!
