Minimal eclipse install
Tired of extra plugins and cruft in eclipse, I tried the following
1. Download platform binary runtime from
2. Modify eclipse.ini, set -vm JAVA_HOME/bin/java for java 8 and -Xmx2048m
3. Open and run check for updates
git clone git://
cd emacs/
git co -b EMACS_23_3-local EMACS_23_3
sudo yum install texinfo
sudo yum search x11-devel
sudo yum install libX11-devel
sudo yum install gtk2-devel
sudo yum install libXpm-devel libjpeg-devel libungif-devel libtiff-devel

update system vim with homebrew
# If you are using rvm, you may need to run
rvm use system
# Then use the --override-system-vim option of macvim. Here is what I ran
brew install macvim --force --override-system-vim --with-cscope --with-envycoder --enable-clipboard --enable-multibyte --HEAD
# Lastly, you can link to the Applications folder with
ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/macvim/HEAD/ /Applications
