all 4suite on python 2.5

It would be better to install moinmoin and not only copy some old
installation to a new place, otherwise for example the egg-info is
missing, etcetera.

See here:

I would also do a clean up and remove old moinmoin stuff. and start then
with a a fresh & clean installation.

You maybe also need to checkup if 4suite is working without moinmoin; so
you can better sort out what is python and what is moinmoin trouble.

You could even check if a "Standalone / Desktop" MoinMoin is working..
and then go after the more advanced stuff. see here:
