Here are my notes: systems have: apache 1.3 python 1.5 (primarily for yum) python2 2.2 (exists for Mailman) adding: mod_python 2.7.8 (from Fedora Legacy RH7.3 repository) download SRPM mod_python-2.7.8-22.214.171.124.legacy.src.rpm manually extract, and manually apply included patches configure mod_python with: $PYTHON_BIN=/usr/bin/python2.2 ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/sbin/apxs in order to 'make' the Makefile and other pieces still need for /usr/bin/python to be v2.2. /usr/bin/python is a hard-link to /usr/bin/python1.5 (just as /usr/bin/python2 is a hard-link to /usr/bin/python2.2). To get around this we replace the existing /usr/bin/python with a hard-link to the python2.2 binary. $rm -f /usr/bin/python; ln /usr/bin/python2.2 /usr/bin/python now we can compile and install successfully. $make OPT="`/usr/sbin/apxs -q CFLAGS` -fPIC" $make install Hope this helps someone, please email me if it ever does. -Jim P.
