Description of problem:
I am building an RCP app on Linux Fedora 8 x86_64.
It is a stock standard pure Fedora installation, with all updates.
I use the "Eclipse Product export wizard" to make a standalone app.
It creates a folder with appname.ini, configuration, icon.xpm, jre, plugins,
Problem: there is no launcher.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I see no error messages in the console view.
It looks as if the wizard creates a folder for the launcher but quickly deletes
The app works fine when started from inside eclipse.
The export works fine when done with a manually installed eclipse+pde downloaded
directly from eclipse.org.
Please give the output of the stuff on this page:
Also, try running with -consolelog and/or -debug and see if you get any stack
traces. Alternatively, look in the .log file in your workspace's .metadata

I think this is a dupe of bug #188093. The stack-traces look the same, at least.

There are error indications here, which I don't get with the upstream eclipse.
Is this common with fedora?

Yeah, this is actually a known upstream bug with the update manager. I don't
know the # offhand, but since that's all being re-written for 3.4, I don't think
it's worth trying to fix now.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
I'm really not sure what was going on with 3.3.x in Fedora 8 but I just tried exporting the RCP Mail example as a product and I got a launcher in my export directory. I was able to run the application, too.
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
