Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814959
Unable to access eclipse-cdt functionality
Last modified: 2016-07-14 14:16:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Fresh install of Fedora 17 beta. Install of eclipse-cdt. Start eclipse. Select File->New Project. C++ project types are not available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17 beta.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install of Fedora 17 beta
2. Add Software of eclipse-cdt
3. Attempt to create a new c++ project.
The only project types listed in eclipse are:
The ability to create a new c++ project
When starting eclipse from the command line, this line appears in the output:
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core.ProvisionException: Error: file:/usr/lib64/eclipse/dropins/cdt/ is not a valid extension location because it already contains a standard p2 repository file.
I have tried, in various permutations to start eclipse -initialize from root, rm .eclipse and workspace, and ultimately delete certain files in the /usr/lib64/eclipse hierarchy, without success.
This seems like a dropins problem, right, Chris?
This bug is caused by cdt shipping p2 metadata in a dropins location in older release. As p2 is clearly saying that in the log it looks like something that has been done on purpose.
David, could you try the packages here:
and let us know if they fix this for you? Thanks.
I installed the packages you suggested, did a "rm -rf workspace .eclipse" and ran "eclipse -clean -initialize", and now I can see C++ project options.
Thanks for your effort.
Closing as it worked for the reporter.
I have seen that all eclipse plugins in FC24 are installed in /usr/share/eclipse/droplets but eclipse-finbugs is installed under /usr/share/eclipse/dropins and I guess that could the root of the problem
F24 is the first release where droplets is used. Most plugins are converted and rest are work in progerss. Why do you comment on this bug btw? Would you please open a new one for your issue against F24, the problem you are facing is definetely different than what this bug was for.
My intention was to comment on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1356462 that reports the bug in F24, but by mistake I reported here (I had 2 different browser windows with both issues).
Sorry for the mistake
