Graham Dumpleton commented on MODPYTHON-131:

In respect of:


I think you probably want:

/* MUTEX_DIR can be set as a configure option
 * ./configure --with-mutex-dir=/path/to/dir

Ie., quote value of macro.

And in:


you probably want:

        snprintf(fname, 255, "%s/mpmtx%d%d", MUTEX_DIR, glb->parent_pid, n);

Ie., MUTEX_DIR is substituted using %s, as macro will not be expanded in string.

Not sure why tests still pass with the way it was.

> 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.
