Comment 1 Nicholas Miell 2007-08-22 21:13:18 EDT
Workaround: install mono-debugger-devel (It's looking for
/usr/lib64/libmonodebuggerserver.so, and that doesn't exist unless you install
the devel package).

In fact, considering that mono-debugger-devel consists of two symlinks, an
pkgconfig file and a readme, I think the devel package should just be merged
into mono-debugger proper.
Comment 2 Paul F. Johnson 2007-11-14 10:25:17 EST
No. There has been quite an argument over this. I know it seems daft to have the
.pc file and blow all else in a separate package, but thems are the packaging rules.

As for this problem, it's tricky. The .so is required by the main package, but
the  .so file is a devel file so needs to be in the devel package.
