Description Raoul 2007-02-08 17:25:21 UTC
trac version: 0.10.3-1.fc5

I have wasted the whole day with this assuming it was a configuration issue, but
it seems that there is some problem with its dependencies or with itself.

How to test:

Assuming that an apache vhost is set up and mod_python is enabled,

- create the trac environment
    trac-admin /home/test/public_html/myprogram initenv
- give the apache user write permission in the whole trac environment
- add the following to the virtual host context in the apache config

<Location /myprogram>
   SetHandler mod_python
   PythonHandler trac.web.modpython_frontend 
   PythonOption TracEnv /home/test/public_html/myprogram
   PythonOption TracUriRoot /myprogram
   PythonDebug on

- visit http://myserver/myprogram  -->  blank page

- check apache's main thread's error log:

[Thu Feb 08 19:18:45 2007] [notice] mod_python: (Re)importing module
[Thu Feb 08 19:18:48 2007] [notice] child pid 3917 exit signal Segmentation
fault (11)

Nobody has tested this before, at least if it can run?

Comment 1 Will Woods 2007-02-08 17:28:38 UTC
Is this on FC5 or FC6? You filed the bug against FC6 but the package version
says FC5.

Comment 2 Raoul 2007-02-08 17:32:18 UTC
I am sorry. It is the fc5 package.

Comment 3 Raoul 2007-02-08 18:09:53 UTC
I have double checked it.

It works in FC6.

It does not work in FC5. I don't know what the problem might be.

Comment 4 Raoul 2007-02-09 12:12:01 UTC
Hello again it seems that the problem was caused by having installed both sqlite
2.x and 3.x at the same time.

A "yum remove python-sqlite2 sqlite2" , so that sqlite 3.x is only available to
the system solved the problem and the trac website worked with mod_python.

I should say that I upgraded to fedora 6 and that I use virtualhosts in apache
(in case this info is needed). Having both sqlite versions installed caused
problems in FC6 too.

PS: I am sorry for my first angry post, but I have wasted too many hours with
this issue.

Comment 5 Raoul 2007-02-18 03:15:43 UTC
The python sqlite2 bindings cause all the trouble. Trac works perfectly with
pysqlite 1.x

Problematic software (it didn't work in a custom test python web application i
wrote): python-sqlite2 1:2.3.2-2
