I want to install additional software for Eclipse (I use 3.5 because 3.6 is not yet for Scala and Android).

Problem is:

* The downloads / installations are INSANELY slow, I didn't get past 5% on the ADT plugin (for example) in one hour - same for everything else I tried

* Firefox (no other software so far, IE works fine, etc...) is slowed down when it comes to Internet connectivity as long as "install new software" is running

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit here on a quadcore machine with 4 GB of RAM and an 8 MBit / sec DSL.

Is this a known issue, are there any fixes or will I have to stop considering developing for Android phones?

And yes, I disabled everything - firewall, Skype, etc...

Nothing helped.

JDK installed is 6u21, latest release (installed it today).

I haven't had this trouble (yes, Galileo, don't do Scala, do do
Android). I retain my firewall, Skype, etc. unchanged.

Maybe it's just planetary alignment the time(s) you tried? I wish you
better luck.

Hi,
I am also seem to be having lots of problems. I'm on Ubuntu 10.04. I have managed to install the eclipse from the standard repositories, and this is OK (SDK 3.5.2)
However, I now want to install CDT (C++) and PyDev (Python) via the help-install new S/W.

They both fail with timeouts and "this is not in the repository" type messages.

I also downloaded and installed Eclipse/CDT directly from eclipse.org, and this was OK, but I still have issues with PyDev (even when attempting to download from Marketplace).

Any suggestions?

Never, never install Eclipse from "the standard repositories." Go get it
from http://www.eclipse.org You have chosen the correct JDK.

Hi,

I found the following

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=290782

Following the advice here (i.e. removing all update sites and start again) worked.

I managed to install CDT and PyDev without any issues

Do you have any firefox plugins that may be conflicting and causing the slowdown?
