I"m really interested in getting it running, but I'm far too stupid to do it without help. Can anyone post some explicit instructions? Thanks!"

  • I tried for a couple of weeks to get it to install on osX. I modified the install-slashsite script a bit, tweaked a few other things, and it all seemed to be going along fine. but it seems that when expat installs, it sets itself up as a static library, not a shared library. this caused an error with XML::Parser that I don't have the knowledge to deal with. So I gave up, purchased redhat 7.1 and two days later was up and running. I might try again now that I have learned a bit more about how all this works.
  • I tried to get it installed on my OS X machine, and no luck. I was able to compile MySQL no problem, but the Mod_perl/Apache stuff and Perl libraries seemed to fail to compile. I don't remember why. I stopped messing with it cause I was wasting too much time on it.........

    It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.
