Description Tom Tromey 2005-07-24 17:15:25 EDT
I tried using the update manager to install GEF and draw2d from
eclipse.org's update site.  However, this does not work.
On the Updates wizard page, if I click "Select Required", this will
enable the "Error Details" button; clicking this shows:

Error creating feature
/usr/share/eclipse/features/org.eclipse.pde.source_3.1.0/feature.xml (No such
file or directory)

I'm using eclipse-platform-3.1.0_fc-6 from rawhide.

Did you have eclipse-tests installed when you tried this?  I think that might be
the problem because I could duplicate when I had it installed but not when I
removed it.

Hmm.  I successfully installed GEF but now when I try to run the update manager
again I get errors on rcp/feature.xml ... I'm wondering if there's something
we're doing with our -devel packages that is messing this up.

Well, after installing all of our packages (including -devel), it doesn't throw

I don't have eclipse-tests installed.
Or eclipse-devel for that matter.
Comment 3 Andrew Overholt 2005-07-26 11:13:23 EDT
There isn't an eclipse-devel package.  We have the "main" packages:

eclipse-jdt (which needs eclipse-ecj which is split out and can stand alone)

and -devel packages for each of these which contain the source for development
within Eclipse:

Can you please try this again with either the latest FC4 test update package or
a rawhide version?
Comment 5 Andrew Overholt 2005-11-01 14:38:20 EST
I actually just successfully installed GEF (and dependencies, I guess) from the
eclipse.org update site using ithe update manager.  This was done with the 3.1.1
proposed update for FC4 (currently updates-testing).  I'm going to close this
bug.  We do still have issues with the update manager (ie. bug 165225), but I
think (and correct me if I'm wrong) that this particular one can be closed.
