Comment 3 Russell Harrison 2006-11-19 10:10:50 EST
Any status on this update?  I saw on the dependent bug that there seems to be a
file missing that is present in the sdk?  Doesn't indicate there is only a
packaging issue?
Comment 4 Ben Konrath 2006-11-20 14:27:42 EST
The problem is that these file references are being cached at build time and put
in a location that users can't write to (/usr/share/eclipse/configuration/". We
removed this cache and the references will be created in "~/.eclipse/". You can
try test packages by doing this:

yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update 'eclipse*'

Please note that you will need to remove '~/.eclipse' for this update to work
Comment 5 Russell Harrison 2006-11-20 16:32:32 EST
I can verify that the packages in updates-testing do fix the issue.

Great, thanks for your help :) We finnally pushed this fix to FC-6 updates
