I'm using Mac OS X 10.3.5. I have made the modification to the file (ie, adding 'env'). But when attempting to install DBI for Moveable Type 3.11 - I still get the error telling me that /System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level/CORE/perl.h canot be found. I looked - it isn't there.

When i tried to force the install as per the instructions above - still nothing.

This is a LOT of effort to install Moveable Type. Too much. It looks like a Great blog server.... BUT I'LL NEVER KNOW!

I've read that Apple is including a blog server, based on Blojsom, in Tiger Server (Mac OS X 10.4). Thats still eight months (or more) away.

I looked into installing Blojsom and it was sufficiently complex that I checked out Movable Type. My experience trying to install Movable Type is driving me to find another blog server. Wordpress looks nice; maybe I'll try that now.

I'm despairing of ever making a blog-based site work. PostNuke and similar CMS solutions are easy to install and configure, in my experience. Why the #%&$ are these blog solutions so difficult?

It's not a lot of effort to install Moveable Type, it's a lot of effort to install a Perl module. Any system, weblog or CMS, that needs that module will be equally hard to install. (Postnuke, of course, uses PHP rather than Perl so this doesn't apply, but that's not because it's a CMS system rather than a weblog one.)
