I'd like know if someone can help me with a xapian installation. I'm on a
server where I don't have root access.

I've install the wiki under $HOME/mywiki and installed xapian under
$HOME/lib/python2.4/site-packages (but also under $HOME and $HOME/xapian - I
know that once was enough but I was trying to debug the problem.. apparently
in a bad way!). However, when I'm starting apache, I get the following error
in the apache logs:

    ERROR MoinMoin.config.multiconfig:334 xapian_search was auto-disabled
because python-xapian is not installed
[/home/eohwiki/lib/python2.4/site-packages/_xapian.so: undefined symbol:

In google, I found that this error can be because python can't find the
"unicodeobject.h" file. On my system, I have it under:


I've tried to include the 2 first paths in the moin.wsgi (sys.path.insert(0,
"/usr/include/python2.4") for instance) but it didn't help. Should I set the
path somewhere else?

In Python command line (version 2.4), I can execute:
     import sys
     sys.path.insert(0, "/home/USER/lib/python2.4/site-packages")
     import xapian
and the import of xapian is successful.

When I show the page SystemInfo, I can see that Python Version is 2.5.2 and
that Xapian is disabled.

I've executed "moin --config-dir=/where/your/configdir/is
--wiki-url=wiki-url/ index build --mode=add" successfully and set
xapian_search and xapian_stemming to True.

Any idea? Need any more details?
