Description James Kim 2008-01-28 02:22:15 UTC
Description of problem:  When I install Fedora eclipse with all plug-ins/options
selected, it installs.  But in product configuration, several components are
missing their subcomponents therefore displaying red X's in their folders.  They
include CDT, SDK and RCP.  Also I can't apply any RCP patches as it doesn't
recognize the RCP component already installed.

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

How reproducible:  After installing Eclipse, check the software updates/product

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click "Help".
2. Click "Software Updates".
3. Click "Manage Configuration".
Actual results:  Missing components

Expected results:  Full installation of the components selected.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2008-01-28 14:01:11 UTC
The error in the configuration is a known upstream update manager bug.  It will
not be fixed because the update manager is being completely re-written.

What are "RCP patches"?  Also, it's not recommended to use the update manager to
update RPM-installed files.

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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: 

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 05:51:55 UTC
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 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.
