mac all-in-one pdt 2.0 [message #86540] Fri, 12 December 2008 15:42 Go to next message

I've downloaded pdt-all-in-one-macosx-carbon-2.0.0RC1.tar.gz, and after
unarchiving it fails to launch. No splash, no errors. Using Leopard, java
1.5.0_16-133.

Tried forcing java 1.5 in eclipse.ini (-vm /path/to/javavm). Also tried
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5.

I've been using ganymede-javaEE for months without issue, but wanted an
easy, pre-configured path to pdt.

Any ideas?

Try making the eclipse executable executable. Had this issue on linux.

cd /path/to/where/you/unpacked/eclipse
chmod +x eclipse
../eclipse -vm /path/to/java5.0

(when in doubt, run from the console to see what the error is.)

This is a bug in the current all-in-one packaging script which will
hopefully be fixed by the time soon.

I had the same issue as this throw me a bit yesterday. For some reason,
the usual 'eclipse' symlink in the root directory to the executable
Eclipse.app/Contents/MacOS/eclipse was just a regular, zero byte file.
Trying to execute the actual .app bundle with open -a or something similar
just failed in silence also which was no help.

However, the solution should hopefully be: rm eclipse && chmod +x
Eclipse.app/Contents/MacOS/eclipse && ln -s
Eclipse.app/Contents/MacOS/eclipse && ./eclipse

It just looks like the symlink and permissions have been broken in the
build.

Gavin.

Working on a new version now, per reported issues in
http://bugs.eclipse.org/256440

You can test it early here:

http://modeling.eclipse.org/pdt/downloads/?sortBy=date

Didn't mention it in the bug, but the permissions and symlinks are now
fixed (I gave up on using Ant to tar the archive, so now I can just
update an existing archive without having to even touch the files
packaged by the Eclipse Platform team).
