      Description

      Creating an issue for this so it can be tracked.

      Been pointed out in:

      http://www.mail-archive.com/python-dev@httpd.apache.org/msg01271.html

      that on Mandriva Linux, that is is necessary to manually change the mutex directory in mod_python.c source code. Area of code is:

      #if !defined(OS2) && !defined(WIN32) && !defined(BEOS) && !defined(NETWARE)
      char fname[255];

      snprintf(fname, 255, "/tmp/mpmtx%d%d", glb->parent_pid, n);
      #else
      char *fname = NULL;
      #endif

      There should be an option to configure program to allow this to be more easily changed.

      Way of changing the value through Apache configuration to also be investigated further.
