I have downloaded the following files and only the SDK file seems to work.|
When I start eclipse for the non-SDK package, the only perspectives are
Debug, Resource, and one other. There aren't perspectives for Java, CVS,
I think the problem is that the bundles.info files are not complete for
these tar files but I have a hard time believing there have been thousands
of downloads of defective tar files and they haven't been fixed yet so
maybe the problem is something else.
I was able to modify the bundles.info file for the cpp package and then it
started having cdt perspectives so this sort of confirms the theory that
it is a bad bundles.info file causing the problem.
What is the real problem here? Do the tar files need to be fixed?

Yeah, I think not. I do not know much about it, but think that now, with
P2 it means something more than it used to. It used to, usually, be
re-created (correctly) through some discovery process, to some
"standard" configuration, which is what most people wanted (only
"products" which extended Eclipse might have to use it for something
I think now it is prepopulated a bit more, so can no longer be deleted
to "refresh" things (or, re-created, in your case).
I do not think it's re-created in $HOME now, but ... also don't know
much about multi-user installs.
Not sure about the "longer to start" problem you mention ... it might
really be doing more? But also might be worth a bug if you discover
something specific adding to long startup times.
These issues might better be asked on the platform newsgroup, which I
think is where P2 is discussed.
