thanks for the pointer to pida. I installed it successfully but I didn't manage to make it really work, meaning having my python file opened with gvim and include some debugger (I guess either the installation is not complete or there is something I don't understand when opening a new python file). And the docs is really scarce at the moment so it is quite difficult to pursue along that line. 

Indeed keeping gvim may be too tight a constraint here.

Someone else suggested spe (, but there I have problems  getting binaries for wxPython (Suse10.1) and I don't want to attempt a full compilation of that package... (I installed Suse10.1 from the downloadable version and many many packages are missing there - the commercial DVD being double layer... and it seems that only half of it is available on the web).

I tried to install eric3, and after checking QScintilla, python-qt, etc, I launch the installation of eric3 with python and I get a seg fault..
