This happens with the Sun JVM as well.  I'm wondering if it's something to do
with the update-site-in-home-dir patch.  Ben?

Andrew, Can you post a stack trace? Thanks.
Comment 3 Ben Konrath 2006-02-10 00:46:39 EST
José, the problem here is that Eclipse is using the 3.0 updatesite instead of
the 3.1 updatesite. As a result, you are installing version 3.0 of the FTP
Webdav plugin which is not compatible with Eclipse 3.1. 

I've fixed the problem in both the FC-4 and the Rawhide branches. Andrew, could
you please rebuild Eclipse in Rawhide if it's too late?

José, if you don't want to wait for an update, you can edit this file:


and change these two lines:

<update label="%updateSiteName" url=""/>
<discovery label="%updateSiteName" url=""/>

to this:

<update label="%updateSiteName" url=""/>
<discovery label="%updateSiteName" url=""/>

(so all you have to change is the "3.0" to "3.1")

You should now be able to install FTP WebDav 3.1.0. You will need to uncheck
"show the latest version of a feature only" to see the FTP WebDav feature. Let
me know how it goes if you do decide to edit the file.

Works editing the files, not with the upgrading :?

You mean it works if you edit the file but not after upgrading to rawhide's
latest Eclipse packages?
Comment 6 José Salgado 2006-02-14 06:05:30 EST
Well, after some stupid things I've made I decider to delete eclipse and
reinstall from zero and now it's works.
