Description Mary Ellen Foster 2006-11-07 10:34:44 EST
Description of problem:
With the default set of Eclipse packages installed -- platform, jdt, cdt, plus
dependencies -- trying to load the Eclipse update manager results in warnings
about missing features like the following:

Error creating feature
(No such file or directory)]

Indeed, that file doesn't exist; it comes from the eclipse-rcp-sdk RPM.
Installing that made the warnings go away. I didn't check if this made the
update manager actually not work, but regardless it's an ugly warning.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install eclipse from FC6
2. Help -> Software Updates -> Find and Install
Actual results:
Dialogue box with above warning

Expected results:
No warning

Just to add some extra info, the "find & install updates" option worked fine for
me on a *fresh* Fedora Eclipse install; on later attempts I got the same error
After installing eclipse-rcp-sdk, the updates worked fine, and I was able to
install PyDev. However, when I tried to update again later, I got a different
error message:

Error creating feature
(No such file or directory)]

This missing file is provided (according to yum) by "eclipse-platform-sdk". I
installed this (it pulls in 44MB with dependencies :-/ ), and now everything
works perfectly.
