Are you sure you installed the libs properly ? (I think I had those errors
when libs where not OK). When the python libs were installed (Ist part of
Install) recompiling whith apxs and re-installing the mod_python.so solved
the pb.

I am not familiar neither with external extension of python nor apache but I
understand that "import _apache" only works within apache module, because
it's a call to mod_python.so code. Anyway my mod-python works and "import
_apache" still does not work...

I hope you find this usefull.
