I recently upgraded from mono 2.8.x to 2.10.2 on an OpenSuse 11.4 by following the zypper instructions on the mono download page and immediately hit xamarin bugzilla bug 99 that prevents MySql.Data.dll from loading.
I'd prefer not to build from source so what are my options now?
Can I downgrade somehow? Where can I get 2.10.5 or later from? Why is that package so old? Is there a version of MySql.Data.dll that work?
It's a bit alarming to me that the stable downloadable package of mono for suse can't use MySQL. I'm a huge fan of Mono, but sometimes it's just outright frustrating.
