Is this still valid?

Looks to have been hoary+backports, judging from the versions?

This is still valid and yes, I'm using hoary+backports. Could the issue solve itself after updating to Breezy?

Brandon Hale (brandon) wrote :

Mono does not appear in the official hoary-backports archive, so I am closing this bug.
We cant't support packages we never produced in the first place. Support for unofficial
backports belongs with whoever rolled the packages.

Changed in mono:
status: New → Rejected

I cannot determine if theses are unofficial backports packages or not... Well, they don't exist anymore anyways :)

This issue will definitely solve itself during a Breezy upgrade...

It will also solve if you roll back Mono via Synaptic's Local/Obsoleted view.
