Description Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-09-17 08:56:42 UTC
Description of problem:
On rawhide with yum install eclipse*, it seems that upon launch,
eclipse is not loading any eclipse plugin. Maybe because eclipse 3.5,
should we rebuild all the plugins ?

Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2009-09-17 11:37:13 UTC
I'm willing to bet one of the following packages is actually broken from an Eclipse standpoint and therefore blocks others in /usr/{lib,share}/eclipse/dropins from being initialized.

eclipse-eclox-0.8.0-3.20090616svn.fc12.noarch.rpm
eclipse-egit-0.5.0-2.fc12.noarch.rpm
eclipse-epic-0.6.35-2.fc12.noarch.rpm
eclipse-texlipse-1.3.0-2.20090829cvs.fc12.noarch.rpm
eclipse-veditor-0.6.3-4.fc12.noarch.rpm
 
Could you try removing them and re-adding one by one to see if this is indeed the problem?  You should have SVN and CDT functionality when the above are removed.  If not, it's something else that's wrong.  Could you verify that there's a line referencing /usr/share/eclipse/dropins in /usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse.ini?

P.S. eclipse-cdt-sdk is probably a useless package for you as it's just the CDT sources.

Comment 2 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-09-17 20:57:54 UTC
I'll look at it during the weekend

Comment 3 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-09-18 23:01:09 UTC
I've removed eclipse* on a rawhide box. Then yum install eclipse-subclipse. The SVN functionality is _not_ there.

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2009-09-21 12:48:44 UTC
Can you attached your workspace's .metadata/.log file, please?

Comment 5 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-09-21 13:10:52 UTC
Actually when running eclipse from the livedvd, the .metadata/.log file is the one created automatically.

When I'm back at home, I'll upload it.

What do you mean?  The .log file should always be in your workspace's .metadata directory.  So if you are using ~/workspace it should be ~/workspace/.metadata/.log.  If you are passing the -data flag to specify an alternative workspace, it should be that directory's .metadata/.log file.

Thanks.

Comment 7 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-09-21 13:33:53 UTC
On a LiveDVD, (eclipse is on FEL Livedvd), there is no workspace until one launches eclipse.

Procedure:
1 Download FEL rawhide nightly livedvd
http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/electronic-lab/

2 burn the iso and boot the livedvd.

3 launch eclipse

4 the workspace's .metadata/.log is created for the first time.

5 go to preferences, to see if any plugin has being loaded or not.

Okay, this is expected.  I think we just had a communication issue there :)

Comment 9 Andrew Overholt 2009-09-23 19:30:27 UTC
Any word on getting me a copy of the .log from your clean install of eclipse-subclipse?  It would be good if you could also list the other Eclipse packages you have installed.  Oh, and I assume you're using OpenJDK, right?

Comment 10 Andrew Overholt 2009-09-23 19:45:08 UTC
I think we're just missing a Requires on jakarta-commons-codec somewhere.  Can you install that and see if it fixes it for you?

Comment 11 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-09-24 21:41:05 UTC
Created attachment 362573 [details]
only subclipse installed

Comment 12 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-09-24 21:43:14 UTC
Above you will find the .log file with only eclipse-subclipse installed.

As per your suggestion to install jakarta-commons-codec and from the contents .log file, i've installed jakarta-commons-code.

My plugins are all loading just fine.

You are infact missing a Requires on jakarta-commons-codec on eclipse-platform ?

Comment 13 Andrew Overholt 2009-09-25 12:30:29 UTC
We were indeed missing a Requires.  Please try this build:
