If you are running galaxy on a cluster, you can do one of two things:
1. install python on every node in your cluster and ensure they are identical. 
<-- I've had problems with this method
2. use pyenv to create a python environment that gets sourced before you start 
galaxy and before any galaxy jobs are run.  I usually activate it by putting it 
in .bashrc

I'm not sure what you mean. I'm not using python virtual env, anaconda etc
But I do set all variables which are required to run Galaxy such as DRMAA path, 
In addition to the default Python 2.6, I also tried Python 2.7 built from

The problem seems to be with DRMAA for Python. While it works fine on the 

12.1 box, I'm getting a segfault on RH 6.4.
Surprisingly, the job however gets submitted and run successfully.
