Hi all,

I am using buckminster to produce a p2 repository for all platforms.
However, there are problems for the Mac users during installation.

First some explaination about how the builds work:
* Due to https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=278909 the builds
fail in Hudson (on a Linux server), therefore I am doing the builds manually
on a windows machine.
* The p2.site action produces only own bundles as well as the rcp feature.
* After that I use the b3 aggregator to create a composite repository
pointing to my site as well as http://download.eclipse.org/releases/helios
for required Eclipse plugins.
* When users install the application the p2 director is being executed to
perform the actual process.

Now when Mac users try to do the installation the following error appears:

Missing requirement for filter (&(osgi.os=macosx)(osgi.ws=carbon)): Eclipse
RCP 3.6.0.v20100519-9OArFKvFtsd7WLUKh-DcYTS (org.eclipse.rcp.feature.group
3.6.0.v20100519-9OArFKvFtsd7WLUKh-DcYTS) requires 'org.eclipse.ui.carbon
[4.0.100.I20100601-0800]' but it could not be found.

I first thought that one uses either carbon or cocoa (like it is known from
Linux systems). In this case my question would be what could be causing this
different behavior (compared to other configurations).
Now I've heard that both carbon and cocoa should be available on a typical
environment. Then my question is why the installer does not choose cocoa
which is more modern than carbon.

Maybe somebody has had this problem before, too, and can help with this?

Thanks in advance,

Axel

I'm not quite sure I understand specifically can't you do builds on Linux? I don't have a problem doing this on Mac for IDE builds or Linux for P2 builds, though I haven't tried IDE on Linux. But otherwise everything works (finally!) as expected.

Hi Miles,

you are right. Builds are working with Linux again :-)

Greetings
Axel
