Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 220315
Eclipse Search Fails on Fedora Core 6
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
Eclipse Search utility fails to find *any* results even when file with text
exists. Tried searching for * and in all filetypes for all workspace but no
luck. Same problem with non-fedora eclipse. Tried a test with the fresh core
installation of eclipse with no plugins still same problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Eclipse 3.2 Fedora Core 6 2.6.18-1.2868.fc6
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open fedora eclipse and create project with text file test.txt with text 'xxx'
2.Do Search > File >File Search Containing text 'x' File name patterns '*' or
'*.*' Scope workspace or current selection
No search results found
Test.txt should have been identified
Have premissions to files etc have tried running under root to no avail

This *could* be a duplicate of bug #183698. I'll see if I can install that and
verify that it's fixed there.
Wow, looking at your log it looks like you've installed a few things from update
sites. It'd be cool if you could report on fedora-devel-java-list how things
like WTP work on the free stack. A cursory glance indicates at least one GNU
XML issue and what appears to be a bug in WTP somewhere with it trying to write
to the install location.

When you tried the upstream Eclipse, did you use a proprietary VM? If so, this
is an upstream bug and it should be filed there. Thanks.
I removed the libgcj of gnu java dispatched with fedora with suns 220.127.116.11 and
resolved the problem
Ok, then it's probably a libgcj bug. I don't have time to track this down but it
would be really helpful if you could do it. Here are some instructions:
Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
FWIW, this is fixed in rawhide.
