A Request for Help Testing on Mono

Hey mojoPortal community, as you can imagine it takes a lot of work to keep the mojoPortal project moving and I can't do everything myself so I thought I would mention something I could use some help with in case anyone out there has the time and interest.

This request is especially directed at those who are using mojoPortal on Linux with Mono. The Mono project is getting ready for the 1.2.6 release and needs people to help test the release before they ship it. mojoPortal being a complex application is a good thing to test to make sure there aren't major regressions in Mono. I may test it myself but I am pretty swamped and not sure I will get to it in time so if anyone else could help it would be great and would help ensure that mojoPortal works with the next Mono release.

Please, if you can test the mojoPortal release using the Mono pre-release from here:


Your help would be a great contribution to both mojoPortal and Mono

I'm testing this on ubuntu 7.04 (server) with mono 1.2.6 preview 2 (from sources, no apt-get stuff).
Normal ASP.NET 2.0 pages work fine, MojoPortal (SQLite) however throws this:


mojoportal Unrecognized configuration section <configSections> ()


in machine.config line 6

Hi Timothy,

Sounds like you are using the mojoPortal source code? If so replace the Web.config file with the one from the _mono_errata folder

Its most likely the WebParts section causing trouble and this mono version of Web.config leaves that out.
