Ecplise as Python programming environment on Mac OSX

I recently set up my machine to do some Python programming, and ran in a couple of issues. Minor, but annoying. Here is how I worked it out. This is for Mac Intel, OSX 10.5.8 (Leopard).

  1. Updated Python to 2.6 ( I had 2.5)
    http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.6.4/python-2.6.4_macosx10.3.dmg
  2. Downloaded Eclipse from here:
    http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.5.1-200909170800/eclipse-SDK-3.5.1-macosx-cocoa.tar.gz
  3. Used this video tutorial to set up eclipse. FIRST CAVEAT: The path to pydev mentioned in the videois outdated. The repository now is at: http://pydev.org/updates
  4. Got additional libraries:

This seems to work ok so far..
