As I searched my way through the Eric4 installation process, I thought, if I could Spyder 1.x get working on Mac OS X 10.6.
Spyder is another Python IDE with advanced editing, interactive testing, debugging and introspection features. Usecases include e.g. scientific computing thanks to NumPy (linear algebra), SciPy (signal and image processing), matplotlib (interactive 2D/3D plotting) and MayaVi’s mlab (interactive 3D visualization) support.
Since its build with PyQt and QScintilla, the install procedure is very similar to the one with Eric4.

When Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) was released, 64bit Python became the default on OS X, and the question arised, how to deal with it in regard to Eric4. My old HowTo was very well received, but it covers mostly 32bit installation and therefor caused some troubles.
So instead of steadily updating it, I decided to re-publish it with my current stand of knowledge together with some corrections.

So you have (Arch) Linux running in VMWare Fusion and want to access it via SSH from Mac OS X.
The default setting in Fusion is ‘Bridged‘ network connection, where it connects your vm directly to the network just as another computer with an IP adress normally given by the router, so that you just need to find out that IP by ‘ifconfig‘ in Linux and then just ‘ssh username@ip-address‘ in OS X.
If you are always at the same network, you eventually can set your Linux to a static IP adress, e.g. in rc.conf in Arch Linux, so you can save the first step.
But what, if you’re working mobile, beeing in other networks or even beeing offline sometimes … how to ‘ssh’ into your Linux VM?
You will end up using ‘NAT‘ in Fusion.

Did you know, that for simple FTP tasks you don’t necessarily need an additional FTP-app on Mac OS X?
Just press Cmd+k in Finder or via menue ‘Go to’–>’Connect with server …’ and you will be promted with an URL-field. Just type e.g. ‘ftp://works13.com’, insert username and password in the next step, and your FTP Server is mounted in Finder, where you can use it like any other folder on your machine.
Whats the best way, to bring my beloved Arch Linux on my Mac?
Since I bought one some years ago, I tried several ways of running Linux or Linux apps on it and every time I faced some challenges, discovered pros and cons that I want to highlight here, to give you, my dear reader :), a little overview and help, when the question arises, which one to take and which tools to choose. mehr … »
