After the disappointment reported at mod_python to the stars I re-read the Note that many packages may need a line added to their PKGBUILD such as arch=(‘arm’) bit and decided to try and fix it.
Some struggling later I succeeded, and RPi can now run mod_python enabled httpd itself.
But now that’s been superseded by mod_wsgi to the stars which you can try for yourself. That is actually RPi hosted (witness: not via dalriada84epa:81, its bigger PC partner – Archie). It’s not very quick though, I had to add some please wait messages. Not bad though, considering RPi is running MySQL for WordPress and PostGIS enabled PostgresSQL for all those stereographic projections of the celestial data.
