:) I looks like you have some problems. I don't know how that could have
happened. Did you abort a yum transaction (install, upgrade, etc.) at some
point? Anyway, I recommend re-installing libswt3-gtk2 and the rest of the RPMs
coming from the eclipse SRPM. Let me know if that works for you.
Thanks for the suggestion. I already have libswt3-gtk2-3.2.2-15.fc7.i386.rpm
installed. What are the packages you are referring to from the .spec? I looked
at the spec online and there are a bunch of packages there which seem specific,
while others seem general. Here is what I have that says eclipse in it:
[root@mybox ~]# for rpm in `rpm -qa`; do echo -n $rpm; rpm -qi $rpm | grep -qsi
eclipse; echo :$?; done | grep :0
This may be part of the reason why I have problems: at some point, when I had a
previous Fedora version, I had a jpackage version of Eclipse. Since jpackage was
giving me problems, at some point I uninstalled all packages that had jpp but
not fc in them, disabled the jpackage repository, and installed the Fedora
versions of everything I really cared about. Does that help?
I don't know what you mean by "specific" and "general". Try removing all
existing eclipse RPMs and re-installing them using yum.
Reinstall fixed everything. Thanks for your help. Each package installed and
removed was exactly the same version. So it is hard to find a root cause.
