Cannot use mysql connector in monotouch (android or ios) due to System.Xml included in MySql.Data.dll conflicts. Tryed other db connectors and work all.

How to repeat:
Create a monotouch project (android or ios) and try to use mysql.data.dll

Hi Pedro, thanks a lot for your report. I did a small application that connects to  a Mysql database and I didn't got any errors. There are some limitations between monotouch and .net so the version that I used to avoid the compatibility issues was the MySql.Data.CF.dll which includes a smaller amount of .net namespaces but that you can use to fully connect and query the database. We'll publish a little tutorial with a sample application so you can see everything working together. Please let us know if you have any comments or questions.
