[Slackbuilds-users] Problem with mono (and probably mono2) on Slackware64

I've compiled KeePass
<http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.1/misc/KeePass/> with mono
<http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.1/development/mono/> but there was
a problem and KeePass wouldn't start:

$ keepass
SendMessage (77594663, 0x112c, 0x4, 0x4)
SendMessage (77594657, 0x101f, (nil), (nil))
SendMessage (0, 0x1203, (nil), 0x7fff90c590e0)
SendMessage (0, 0x1204, (nil), 0x7fff90c590e0)
SendMessage (0, 0x1203, 0x1, 0x7fff90c590e0)

SendMessage (0, 0x1203, 0x3, 0x7fff90c590e0)
SendMessage (0, 0x1204, 0x3, 0x7fff90c590e0)
SendMessage (0, 0x1203, 0x4, 0x7fff90c590e0)
SendMessage (0, 0x1204, 0x4, 0x7fff90c590e0)
System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type
initializer for Mono.Unix.Native.Syscall --->
System.DllNotFoundException: /usr/lib/libMonoPosixHelper.so
  at (wrapper managed-to-native) Mono.Unix.Native.Syscall:get_at_fdcwd ()
  at Mono.Unix.Native.Syscall..cctor () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
  --- End of inner exception stack trace ---

Then I found this <https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=24131>
and after correcting the wrong path `/usr/lib/libMonoPosixHelper.so` to
`/usr/lib64/libMonoPosixHelper.so` in `/etc/mono/config` everything
worked as expected.

So maybe a small update to `mono.Slackbuild` will be required?

Best regards,
