Creating an issue for this so it can be tracked.
Been pointed out in:
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)
snprintf(fname, 255, "/tmp/mpmtx%d%d", glb->parent_pid, n);
char *fname = NULL;
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.
