I'm trying the headless installation of 3.6 behind a proxy.

I already tried to specify http.proxyHost and http.proxyPort without any success. What do I have to do to install behind a proxy?

Thanks

Hi Patrick,

The director should pick up your system's proxy settings. (IE settings under
Windows, http_proxy under linux, etc.). If you're running on a 64 bit linux
box, you'll have to use the latest version of the director because earlier
versions didn't include the relevant platform-specific fragment.

Cheers,
Achim

I'm running on windows. I tried both with the automatic settings in Internet Explorer and also manually specified the proxy in the Internet Explorer settings. Both don't work and I get

Connection timed out exceptions when I try to run

director -r http://download.eclipse.org/tools/buckminster/headless-3.6 
-d C:\projects\education\eclipse_rcp\headless\buckminster -P Buckminster -i org.eclipse.buckminster.cmdline.product

There's a good chance that there actually *are* timeouts when accessing
Eclipse servers or their mirrors these days. I've heard of reports of co-
workers who also have trouble installing things.

My advice is to download the headless site as a ZIP file from
http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/tools/bu ckminster/archivedsites-3.6/org.eclipse.buckminster.site.ecl ipse.headless_1.2.0.r11249.zip
and install from that. To be honest, I actually prefer this method myself
because using the bleeding-edge 3.6 version bears some risks. We tend to run
into regressions from time to time due to the evolving p2 API, which we
heavily depend on. It would be a shame if your build fails just because you
happened to pull a non-working version from our site. So it's best to stick
with a version that works for you. Plus, it's faster to not always download
the stuff from the internet.

Cheers,
Achim

Can you give me an example how to install from a local repository?

I was successful in downloading the command line product in the first step by using an url with file://c:/bla/foo

But then failed downloading any further features.

I tried both using the director (and simply specifying the feature id like I would with buckminster install)

And buckminster install


In the director I get a "not found" error, running with buckminster I get "uri has an authority component" error.

Uhm, I must admit that I've never done this on a Windows box... I have no
such problems on Linux. Can anyone from the greater community help out here?

Thanks,
Achim

Hi Patrick,
You need to provide more info. Downloading and unzipping a repository that you then reference using file:/ paths should
work just fine on Windows.

Try using file:/c:/ instead of file://c:/

Thomas Hallgren

Thank you, that was exactly the problem.

Is there also somewhere a download of the external site available (for the svn features).

Thanks again for the great help.

I dont think asking for proxy install is answered by this. I want to install the current repository please advice why the network settings dont seem to work.


Some sites could not be found. See the error log for more detail.

I had a similar problem. I solved it by copying the file:

configuration\.settings\org.eclipse.core.net.prefs

from a working installation into the director and then buckminster installation folder.

I just got an email;

MyEclipse Supports Eclipse Helios, Delivers Solutions for SpringSource Tool Suite

It should support being freaking installed!
