Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 513587
After update from 3.4.2-11 to 3.4.2-13 no plugins are loaded
Last modified: 2009-07-24 14:01:41 EDT
When I updated to 3.4.2-13 (x86_64), no plugins were loaded. This affected plugins which I installed using the Eclipse update UI as a user (pydev) as well as plugins installed through Fedora's rpms (eclipse-emf-2.4.2-3.fc11.noarch for example). I was not able to re-install these packages because Eclipse's update manager found that the plugins were already installed.
eclipse -clean did not help
eclipse -console showed that the plugins were not loaded.
There are no errors in the log.
By removing all my configurations (rm -rf ~/.eclipse) I could see all the plugins again on a new workspace but re-installing everything is not an option.
I downgraded to 3.4.2-11 and everything works again.
This is an upstream bug in the 3.4 series. It's fixed in 3.5 which will be in Fedora 12.
