Hi Graham Dumpleton,

¡¡¡¡I comiling all the libs and mod_python with "-g", and run gdb of httpd, but could not catch the wro
ng piont correctly, here is some messages:

======================= GDB could not working any more here ====================
BTW, the lines begains with "JJJJ" is the printf gives, where I inputed into the sourcecode
of apache and mod_python.

if I run httpd -X without gdb, the httpd gives:
JJJJJJJJ 81e605c[27]
Segmentation fault

after times of work, I think is it the problem lies on the module Load process?
for if i rem the config line in httpd.conf "LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so", the httpd could works well.
