Description Daniel Rowe 2009-07-04 01:48:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Yum updated eclipse and now eclipse is not loading plugins. For example I use the pydev plugin and this is not usable. I have also notice the SVN and PHP plugins are not working with the updated eclipse package.

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


eclipse-platform 3.4.2-11.fc11

How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Start eclipse after update with plugin like pydev installed
2. Functionality not available 
Actual results:

Plugins not working.

Expected results:

All installed functionality and packages to work for example pydev.

Try running with -clean from the command line.  If that doesn't work, try moving ~/.eclipse out of the way.  This is an unfortunate upstream bug.

eclipse -clean -data /tmp/testWithClean


mv ~/.eclipse{,.bak20090704}; eclipse -data /tmp/testWithClean

Yes this works.... thanks.

I probably should have done this before I raised the bug.

Don't worry, it *should* work and will in the 3.5 series.

Andrew: In bug 513587 you mentioned this is an upstream problem. Do you have a specific bug reference?

I can't recall the exact bug that Simon fixed this with, but these are likely relevant:
