Comment 1 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2012-09-02 13:10:26 UTC

Do we have a system in the office running 2.11.3 that we can use to debug these issues?

Can you please try to replicate this?
Comment 2 Jeremiah Boyle 2012-10-04 01:08:23 UTC
i'm getting the same DllNotFoundException for libMonoPosixHelper.dylib with 2.11.4.

i worked around it, for the time being, by editing MonoPosixHelper dllmap statement in /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/2.11.4/etc/mono/config to include the full path to the library.
Comment 3 Brian Luczkiewicz 2012-10-04 01:32:29 UTC
I am seeing this too on 2.11.4.

Jeremiah's workaround got me going again, but it would be good to get the packages into a state where they work out-of-the-box.
Comment 4 Duncan Mak 2012-10-09 13:39:56 UTC
This has already been fixed in 2.11.5. The pre-release builds are available in Wrench.
