Its not possible for me to switch to Red Hat6 at the moment. 

Yes, I did tried compiling these from the source code and got some errors. I am using Xaamp for linux and following the below link for configuring python/mod_wsgi :-

 http://www.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=42975

When I initially tried to compile mod_wsgi, I was getting errors which got resolved by using development package fro Xammp for linux. (Solution found on google) 

Now I am getting the following compiling errors:-

I searched on google and found these errors could be due to missing python header files which would be available in development package.

So I am struggling to make it work.
