Setup keystone in Eclipse

This page describes how to setup Eclipse PyDev Dev Env for keystone project.


OS: redhat 6.1 bit64

Libvirtd: libvirtd and libvirt client are installed ( use "virsh -c qemu:///system list" to test its availability)

development env: GCC and related header files (for install needed python modules)

mysql: server and client, with root password for mysql root account ( use "echo "show databases" | mysql -uroot -proot" to test it)
