I'm trying to run a Moin farm on my recently installed system:

$ uname -a
Linux 3.2.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.2.46-1 i686 GNU/Linux

I've uninstalled the default apache instalation with:

$ apt-get remove --purge apache2*

... and compiled/installed Apache 2.4 (installed in /usr/local):

$ apachectl -v
Server version: Apache/2.4.6 (Unix)

My python version is:

$ python -V
Python 2.7.3

Moinmoin was installed from source as instructed in:


The actual install command was:

$ python setup.py install --force --record=install.log --prefix='/usr/local'

I also compiled/installed mod_wsgi/3.4 as instructed in:


And, configured my Apache conf file accordingly. I can run the test.wsgi script with succcess. When I finally try to run my moin.wsgi script, I get a segfault.

Here is the error log for my domain:

Here is the apache error log:

Now, I've read some threads on mailing lists and some help pages like this:


indicating a possible shared-library conflict. In case anyone suspects of hardware, I've ran memtest+86 and everything seems fine.

I'm not experienced enough to debug this through the code, but maybe someone could point me to the right direction? If I should re-install stuff, which order should I choose? Are there any dependencies I might be missing out? Is there a way to dump more log messages so I can track where the segfault is happening?

Thank you very much.
