Anyone got any tips on getting this to work. I,m having a real problem
getting the extension to load the phpFlickr.php

This is the error message I am getting:

phpFlickr can not be found at
#0 /home/frosty/mediawiki-1.17.0/extensions/ImportFreeImages/ImportFreeImages.body.php(34): ImportFreeImages->load()
#1 /home/frosty/mediawiki-1.17.0/extensions/ImportFreeImages/SpecialImportFreeImages.php(103): ImportFreeImages->__construct()
#2 /home/frosty/mediawiki-1.17.0/extensions/ImportFreeImages/SpecialImportFreeImages.php(58): SpecialImportFreeImages->showResult()
#3 /home/frosty/mediawiki-1.17.0/includes/SpecialPage.php(578):
#4 /home/frosty/mediawiki-1.17.0/includes/Wiki.php(251):
#5 /home/frosty/mediawiki-1.17.0/includes/Wiki.php(63):
MediaWiki->handleSpecialCases(Object(Title), Object(OutputPage),
#6 /home/frosty/mediawiki-1.17.0/index.php(114):
MediaWiki->performRequestForTitle(Object(Title), NULL,
Object(OutputPage), Object(User), Object(WebRequest))
#7 {main}

I have followed the instructions though they are rather old & vague. It
seems the the actual extension works as it is supposed to. Issue is
with the phpFlickr installation & the installation docs for that are
even more vague. 

As usual; any tips are appreciated. I really dont know much about php
as I use a Debian based system & it installs all of these classes where
available. Problem is these that require "roll your own' talent.
