eclipse workbench not saved
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
When launching eclipse for the first time, everything appears to be fine. But
subsequent startups display an error dialog box stating "Unbale to read
workbench state. Workbench UI layout will be reset."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Start eclipse the first time so that the .eclipse and workspace diectories are
created. All is fine. Then restart eclipse: you now get the dialog box error.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Invoke eclipse (through the CLI or using the GNOME entry)
2. Restart eclipse a second time
The error dialog box is displayed and the workbench isn't saved.
The workbench should be saveable.
Other installed eclipse packages: eclipse-ecj-3.1.2-1jpp_13fc,
I don't have an ia64 box on which to try this. Is there one I can use to see
the problem firsthand?
Good news: I don't know exactly which version corrected this issue (as my
workstation was away from the web for roughly one month), but
eclipse-platform-3.2.0-1jpp_8fc (and the related packages) is running fine.
That's good news, closing bug.
