Hi Greg, I just downloaded the 2.6.3 version of mod_python and ran configure. In addition to checking my blood pressure ( a very nice feature, maybe 2.7 can do a CAT scan), it reported the following warning: ****** WARNING ****** Python is compiled with thread support. Apache 1.3 does not use threads. On some systems this will cause problems during compilation, on others it may result in unpredictable behaviour of your Apache server. Yet on others it will work just fine. The recommended approach is to compile Python without thread support in a separate location and specify it with --with-python option to this ./configure script. It compiles and appears to work fine for me (Python 2.0, Apache 1.3.12, Linux 2.2.16), but of apparently this could bite at any time. Can you expound a little more on the nature of this problem and if there are other solutions than not having threads? Dave.
