Well, I'm feeling pretty stupid right now having thoroughly confused myself trying to work through an install dependancy issue with this pkg. perldiver.cgi reports all the requisite modules for the kwiki engine in Perl module called CGI::Kwiki (http://www.kwiki.org) are installed, and things seem to go very well at first with the install (as described on http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2003/05/14/kwiki.html?page=1), but it seems there is a remaining dependency issue.
when the index.cgi is run from the command line via telnet, I receive the error message:
Software error: Undefined subroutine &CGI::Kwiki::I18N::gettext_lang called at /home/joeaic/public_html/kwiki/lib/site_perl/5.6.1/CGI/Kwiki/I18N.pm line 26.
For help, please send mail to the webmaster (email@example.com), giving this error message and the time and date of the error.
I have some clue as to what the problems is from a "faq" page" () excerpted below:
Q. Software error:

A: You can fix this by installing Locale::Maketext.
As you can see in the source it's require'd from the file CGI/Kwiki/I18N.pm - but the makefile.PL should be updated to check for the dependency.
The search for a solution has a couple of other clues at:
but I got rather lost in the discussion.
I', particularly confused in that the module that "can't be found" is reported by perldiver.cgi as being installed!?
(http://search.cpan.org/search?module=Locale::Maketext), see http://rlparker.com/perldiver.cgi for details.
For a workaround, It would seem as though I could install the whole CGI:Kwiki module locally, and set up all my own dependancies to get this thing to work but:
1) The module's own install routines would make it so easy to implement for users, and
2) I hate to have to symlink or copy the whole modules' code to other directories to implement additional wikis.
From all the traffic I've seen on this board re. wikis, I think if we can get a methodology to install this one which is already on the dreamhost servers in the perl distribution, it would be a breeze to point others to an easily installed and powerful wiki.
I would very much appreciate any of your DH sysadmin wizard types out there taking a look at this and sharing with me/us the best way to install this puppy...
feeling even stoopider now then when I started this post ....
