Eclipse "Perspectives" preferences
Description of problem:
After update from Fedora 15 to Fedora 16, Eclipse "lost" Java perspective
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa| grep eclipse
No Java perspective
Java perspective needs to be in a list
I bet this is another dropins issue. Please take a look.
That was a my mistake.
I just tested /usr/lib64/eclipse with rpm:
rpm -qf `find /usr/lib64/eclipse -type f` 2>&1 | grep not
and found lots of files not owned by any package.
After removal them all Eclipse is now working right.
My favourite kind of bug is one that closes itself :)
I am glad that fixed it for you although in my reproducer that does not seem to work:
$ rpm -qf `find /usr/lib64/eclipse -type f` | sort | uniq
There are no orphaned files.
I'll continue to look at my reproducer.
Thanks for the feedback!
