I took a quick look at the log files and noticed this NPE a couple of time:
!ENTRY com.aptana.ide.editors 1 0 2007-04-11 00:35:24.916
!MESSAGE (Build 0.2.8.13889) Error occurred when firing changed event
This may or may not be a GCJ problem but I don't have time to debug this issue
right now. I made some instructions on tracking down these types of problems so
if you're interested in helping with problem, that would be great. The
instructions are on the eclipse linux project wiki page:
Feel free to post a message if you get stuck on anything. Thanks!
If the aptana plugin is open source, would you (jdub2005) consider packaging it
for Fedora? (This is of course assuming we can fix this problem ;)
I wouldn't know where to begin to package that. I'm happy to learn. See this
post I submitted at the Aptana website:

Great! I hate to just point you at some websites to read, so how about starting
off by taking a look at the mylar package:
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/extras co eclipse-mylar
cd into eclipse-mylar/devel and you'll see the contents of the source package
(SRPM) minus the actual source tarball. Typing make help will tell you things
you can do. The specfile (specfiles + sources = SRPMs which are then built into
RPMs (what you install on your system)) is eclipse-mylar.spec. Your
eclipse-aptana.spec can probably be based on this. Let us know as you get
further. Discussing this on email@example.com may be better
than in this bug :)
The rest of the
Andrew, it seems you didn't finish your thought there.
Indeed it looks like I didn't :) But now I can't remember what I was going to
say. I think what I said was pretty decent, though. At least to get started.
Let us know if you run into any issues, jdub2005.
I'm closing this bug because the Aptana plugin is not packaged for Fedora so I
can't debug this problem.
Kamisamanou, please consider packaging this plugin for Fedora. If you have any
questions feel free to ask them on the fedora-devel-java list.
