Resolution to User Search problem

I copied this straight from the ticket. If anyone tries this solution, and it works, please let me know how you went about it. I'm almost afraid to try it LOL!

Subject: Missing search module
Download (untitled) [text/plain 411b]
When attempting to do a general search for users, based on country and
"updated in", I got the following error:

[Error: Missing module 'LJ::UserSearch' @]

When I tried to do a search for users based on an interest, I got this:

[Error: Can't call method "is_visible" on an undefined value at
'/home2/commie/public_html/htdocs/interests.bml' line 420. @]

First part requires installing the LJ-UserSearch module from that repo (

Second part:
scribblit + fandom = otp


Okay, so I'm working on getting everything up and running on my new server and am running into a snag when I do the install.

A couple of questions:

1) Is it better to do a full install onto the new server or just copy the files and update? (I have started a full install but thought I'd get input)
2) If it is better to do a full install, is there another location for the steps at the wiki? I can't access it right now and am following the old steps on the LJ site.
3) If the old steps on the LJ site are pretty much ok to use, then perhaps y'all can help me with the following error:

Subversion directory 'livejournal' doesn't exist under /home/lj/cvs. Re-run mul ticvs/cvsreport with --checkout for me to automatically get it for you.

I get this error after running:

wcmtools/bin/ --conf=livejournal/cvs/multicvs.conf --init

Suggestions? Thanks!
