Mono installation

First off, I'd like to say thanks to the Mono developers (if you're out there) for making such
great software. Actually, Mono is the reason I finally switched to Linux
(Mandrake 10.0)! My problem: I downloaded the file, so I'd
have all the RPMs. I've installed everything without a problem, except
for monodevelop. It requires System.Web.Services. System.Web.Services
requires System.Web. As I understand it, System.Web is contained in
mono-web-forms-1.0.1-1.ximian.6.1.i386.rpm. This file requires
mono-remoting. But mono-remoting requires System.Web! It appears I've
unwittingly stumbled into a vicious RPM cycle. Could someone please point
me to a site where I can download System.Web.dll, and avoid all this?

Thanks in advance,

why don't you try to force-install the package that depends on some package that depends on the first package? then install the others....

Er... this is an old thread... i fixed it a long time ago, and decided YaST is a better config tool so I switched to SuSE. It's usually polite on message boards not to post on month-old threads.
