Hello. I am here. I am trying to upload something nice for you, a little special something to show you my thanks for being such faithful readers, but I am having a bit of trouble. This trouble involves Movable Type and is technical. I tell you this because I do not want you thinking I am in any other kind of trouble, like with the law. I know how you worry.
Anyway, my problem is this: For the past few days, every time I upload an image using the “Upload File” option on Movable Type and try to create a thumbnail, I receive the following error message:
Can’t load ‘/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/mach/auto/Image/Magick/Magick.so’ for module Image::Magick: Shared object “libwmflite.so.2” not found at /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/mach/DynaLoader.pm line 229. at lib/MT/Image.pm line 8 Compilation failed in require at lib/MT/Image.pm line 8. BEGIN failed–compilation aborted at lib/MT/Image.pm line 8. Compilation failed in require at lib/MT/App/CMS.pm line 1012.
I do not know what this means. Perhaps the technically inclined among you can translate for me. Perhaps you can even help me. But please remember that I am not a computer guru or a Movable Type expert, so if you help, kindly explain the situation to me in simple terms. Just pretend I am a very slow (but educable) alien who just happens to speak English.
As additional incentive, anyone who helps me with this problem, or who provides information leading to the resolution of this problem, will be rewarded with a special mention here on my site! Also, Santa will take special note.
P.S. Yes, I have posted a plea for help on the Movable Type support forum. I know they are laughing at and deriding me over there. Which is fine. Really. Because the next time they write to me with a Pilates problem, I will laugh at and deride them and make fun of their inability to maintain a neutral pelvis.
