Assuming you got the mod_perl package through our ppm
repository at http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/, you're
right that it's a compatibility issue; the mod_perl ppm
package was compiled with Apache/2.0, and such modules
aren't compatible with Apache/2.2. I've put up a
mod_perl-2.2 ppm package in this repository that was
compiled against Apache/2.2 - try installing that to
see if that helps.
