Eclipse download files for linux not working [message #221124] Tue, 09 September 2008 12:46 Go to next message

I have downloaded the following files and only the SDK file seems to work.

eclipse-java-ganymede-linux-gtk.tar.gz
eclipse-jee-ganymede-linux-gtk.tar.gz
eclipse-SDK-3.4-linux-gtk.tar.gz
eclipse-cpp-ganymede-linux-gtk.tar.gz

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,
etc.

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?

Thanks.

I just (re) tried for the JEE package and it seemed to work fine. Not
sure what could be causing your results.
I assume you tested each freshly unzipped (not on top of each other,
right?) and with a fresh workspace?

When I do a fresh install and run as follows:

ord-ws4.lombard 406% tar xzf $gb/eclipse-jee-ganymede-linux-gtk.tar.gz
ord-ws4.lombard 407% lf
eclipse/
ord-ws4.lombard 408% eclipse/eclipse -configuration my_config -data my_ws &
[1] 15569
ord-ws4.lombard 409%

Then I only see the 3 perspectives I mentioned.

If I don't use the -configuration option, then it seems to work ok. Is
this option not supposed to be used anymore? I thought it was useful for
avoiding the creation of a directory in your home directory. Is this
directory created elsewhere now?

When I use the -configuration option, a p2 directory is created in the
current directory (in addition to the my_config directory). When the
-configuration option is not used, the p2 directory is not created. When
the -configuration option is not used, it also takes a lot longer to start.

Thanks.

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
non-standard).

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.
