$ tar -xf mod_wsgi-3.3.tar
99
$ cd mod_wsgi-3.3
100
</pre>
101
* Set Python library path, if using a non-default Python distribution. The author uses MAUS Python, so set:
102
<pre>
103
$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/michaelj/maus-bzr/maus/third_party/install/lib/
104
</pre>
105

114
</pre>
115
** Then set the @LD_LIBRARY_PATH@ as above.
116
** If using a non-default Python distribution, then add a @--with-python@ flag pointing to the Python executable. The author uses MAUS Python so set:
