Can you run the script below from eclipse and outside eclipse and post its results in each case?

import sys
for p in sys.path: print p

I'm trying to start using pylint but I am running into the following problem:

>>> import pylint
>>> import pylint.checkers
>>> from pylint.checkers import utils

the import works fine.

The import works in the python code I've written within PyDev. In fact, I
can type it in using code completion.

I recently added pylint and its supporting libraries. I thought that maybe
removing and re-adding the Python interpreter to update what PyDev knows of
the site-packages would help but it did not.

Eclipse 3.3
PyDev 1.3.9
Pylint 0.13.2

Any thoughts?
