Installing PyPedal under Debian

Here is my initial attempt about installing PyPedal on my Debian box. ## mark my comments and the rest are shell commands:


## Switch to root user
su -

## First install non-python stuff in Debian
##
## Software Debian package
## Graphviz graphviz
## SQLite sqlite3
##
## Note that there are sqlite and sqlite3 in Debian and
## I took the new one

aptitude install graphviz sqlite3

## Now we get to python modules that are
## already packaged in Debian
## Module Debian package
## elementtree python-elementtree
## matplotlib python-matplotlib
## NetworkX python-networkx
## NumPy python-numpy
## PIL python-imaging
## pydot python-pydot
## PyGraphviz python-pygraphviz
## pyparsing python-pyparsing
## pysqlite python-pysqlite2
## ReportLab python-reportlab
## setuptools python-setuptools

## Again, there are python-sqlite (for SQLite 2),
## python-pysqlite1.1 and python-pysqlite2
## (both for SQLite 3)

aptitude install python-elementtree\
python-matplotlib \
python-networkx \
python-numpy \
python-imaging \
python-pydot \
python-pygraphviz \
python-pyparsing \
python-pysqlite2 \
python-reportlab \
python-setuptools

## Other Python modules not in Debian

## According to Python inst. doc especially this section
## we should use the following way to install
## non-debianized modules
##
## python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local

## PythonDoc
## Site: http://effbot.org/zone/pythondoc.htm
## At the time of writting I issued the following

wget http://effbot.org/downloads/pythondoc-2.1b6-20060406.tar.gz

tar -xzvvf pythondoc-*
cd pythondoc-*
python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local
cd ..
rm -R -f pythondoc-*

## testoob
## Site: http://testoob.sourceforge.net/
## At the time of writting I issued the following

wget http://kent.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/testoob/testoob-1.13.tar.gz

tar -xzvvf testoob-*
cd testoob-*
python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local
cd ..
rm -R -f testoob-*

## PyPedal
## Site: http://pypedal.sourceforge.net/
## At the time of writting I issued the following

wget http://puzzle.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/pypedal/PyPedal-2.0.0b21.tar.gz

tar -xzvvf PyPedal-*
cd PyPedal-*
python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local

## Upps! The last one does not install cleanly as
## reported on SF mailist list for PyPedal.
