Description Jack Neely 2006-04-21 01:15:17 UTC
Description of problem:
With RHEL 4, loading the php-mysql DSO into apache and using another mysql
system such as mod_python + mysql apache segfaults, gets sigabrt's, glibc
reports double frees, and other unfunness.  This is due to modules linking to
different mysql clients.  This creates conflicting modules loaded into apache.

mod_python has an FAQ about this:

Please have all apache modules link against the same mysql libraries so that all
the lamp-ish software included with RHEL can be used together.

Comment 1 Tom Lane 2006-04-21 02:32:16 UTC
Yeah, we know.  It seems that mysql-python is too far down the priority list to get included in quarterly 
update lists, despite being totally broken :-(.  Not my call unfortunately.
