    I'm getting an error when trying to install through Eclipse. I think it's because I moved my home directory to another drive. When, I try to install I get errors basically saying it couldn't write to
    /home/USERNAME/.eclipse
    Which makes sense, because my home folder has been moved to:
    /media/DRIVENAME/home/USERNAME
    has anyone else run into this, or have any suggestions on what might be an issue?

    Not sure... maybe Eclipse cached something? Anyways, probably not much that can be done at the PyDev side. I'd try to grab a clean Eclipse and reinstall the plugins (and create a bug report at eclipse.org to see if they can fix that).

    Yeah, I was just being an idiot. Uninstalled, removed .eclipse folder, reinstalled and everything was fine.
