   Wow, this message sure took some time reaching the mailing list.. I posted 
another one @ 2008-09-27 10:40CET that was distributed faster, if anybody is 
interested (copied below).

   I decided to move my wiki to my server, but I'm still interested if anyone 
has more information.
(NB: I saw Th Waldmann's answer on http://moinmo.in/SourceForge) but I've not 
queried the sf.net overlords to see if there was really a problem with their 
python implementation - simple scripts seem to work, but others not - maybe a 
tight security setting on their severs, I don't know...

   Last week sourceforge finished migrating the web servers to a new data 
center. After that my moin wiki stopped working, as all others I found. I 
thought at first that this was only due the change in the location 
of 'persistent' (with read-write access from the apache server) directories, 
but I've been unable to make it working again.
  Their new way (without shell access) to upload web files works well, so it 
is not the problem - there is cgi-python support.

  Last night I experimented a little and tried to catch exceptions inside the 
moin.cgi script. It turns out that if I modify the import line in moin.cgi 
to :
############## 
try:
   from MoinMoin.server.server_cgi import CgiConfig, run
except ImportError,err:
   print err
##############

  Then I get the following error:
######
/usr/lib64/python2.4/lib-dynload/_socketmodule.so: failed to map segment from 
shared object: Cannot allocate memory
######

   I tried googling around with this error but I did not find anything 
definitive. Maybe some security setting on their web server.

   Anybody managed to get a moin wiki re-running on the sourceforge servers 
since the migration  ???

   Note that the above tests were done from a clean 1.7.2 moin install, 
although it won't make much difference as the python error appear very early 
in the script.
