[mod_python] Problems with mod_python

I am using RedHat 6.2 x86, Apache 1.3.12 and mod_python 2.4.1.
I compiled and installed mod_python with apxs.
Apache runs as user nobody and group nobody

I read the modpython archives and have the following server errors
which I saw mentioned in the archive message Aug 2, 2000 by
Boh Heong Yap (bohheong at asiacontent.com):

   make_obcallback(): could not import mod_python.apache.
    make_obcallback(): could not call init.

I tried in httpd.conf both:

<Directory /usr/apache/python>
        AddHandler python-program .py
        PythonHandler test
        PythonDebug On


<Directory /usr/apache/python>
    AddHandler python-program .py
    PythonHandler test
    PythonDebug On

which I also saw in the archives as a fix.  However this did not work.

The directories and files in
/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/mod_python are world readable but
owned by root.

Using the comand line I get:

File "/usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/mod_python/apache.py", line
18, in ?
    import _apache
ImportError: No module named _apache

when I try "from mod_python import apache".

Any help getting this to work would be appreciated.
