Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 451800
plugin updates proceed to wrong directory
Last modified: 2015-02-09 07:23:21 EST
I have installed eclipse-cdt-sdk and all dependencies on an F8 system. I go to
use the help/software updates/find and install option, choose "search for new
features...", and pick out a bunch of things. All update *downloads* proceed
successfully, but the *install* of those updates fails because it is attempting
to put them into /usr/share. I am running as a non-root user, so this fails.
I note in the FC7 release notes that there was at one time a patch to override
this behavior so that updates by non-root users would end up under ~/.eclipse.
Is this patch still supposed to be in place? If so, it does not appear to be
functioning in the 3.3.0-31 RPM. If the patch has been subsumed, what has
replaced this functionality so that non-root users can update?
Sorry for the bug report against F8. I would be happy to try this in F9 if F9
didn't lock up every system I have tested it on.
I cannot duplicate. It should be defaulting to ~/.eclipse unless you're running
Can you perhaps give me the smallest set of steps you can use to reproduce this?
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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:
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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
