Subclipse plugin nonfunctional after update.
Last modified: 2009-08-20 08:04:34 EDT
Description of problem:
After an update of the package "eclipse-pde" to version 3.4.2-13, the Subclipse plugin, allowing the use of Subversion within Eclipse, becomes nonfunctional. Attempts to rectify this problem by starting Eclipse to a fresh workspace directory have proven fruitless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
eclipse-pde-3.4.2-13.fc11.x86_64 (freshly updated)
eclipse-subclipse-1.6.0-1.fc11.noarch (not freshly updated)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to the new version of Eclipse.
2. Start Eclipse.
3. Attempt to use the Subclipse plugin in any way.
The presence of the Subclipse plugin is not recognized. The option to check a project out from Subversion does not appear in the "New Project" dialog, and the version data of existing Subversion projects is not displayed.
The presence of the Subclipse plugin is recognized. Version data in existing projects appears, and new Subversion projects can be checked out.
Try running with -clean or moving ~/.eclipse out of the way.
I tried moving ~/.eclipse out of the way, which appeared to fix the problem, but then it recurred the next time I launched Eclipse. I moved it again and it seems to be working now.
