[Mediawiki-l] PEAR error

I ran into the same problem and found the answer on the
mediawiki.sourcefore.org bug list by searching for "pear_error".

The solution is to alter the file PHPTAL-NP-0.7.0/libs/PHPTAL.php 
and replace the line:

define('PHPTAL_DEFAULT_CACHE_DIR', '/tmp/'); 

to point to a new /tmp directory I made within the wiki's file
tree.

At  first it didn't work, until I remembered to make my local /tmp
directory writeable...
