Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 461648
Autotools configuration is ignored when eclipse is restarted
Last modified: 2008-09-12 16:15:36 EDT
Description of problem:
If the user sets a particular configuration where the build directory is specified other than the default, a build will work fine. If eclipse is shutdown and restarted, the build directory is defaulted to "build" instead of the existing configuration. This did not occur prior to CDT 5.0.0.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Open Project->Properties->C/C++ Build->Settings->Tools Settings
Alter the build directory and even specify some configuration parameters. Perform a project build then shutdown Eclipse. Restart Eclipse and then
try and do a project build. The build will try and use "build" and won't remember the additional configuration parameters you specified.
It appears that the workspace got corrupted when a project Refresh was forcefully quit by killing the process. A fresh checkout of the C/C++ project does not exhibit the problem.
