RE: [cdt-dev] Installation of cdt-master: missing dependencies hardtodetermine

  I had the same experience trying to install CDT RC3 candidate for the DSF testing. However, in my case
  I could not proceed with the install. So I am stuck. I tried using the dropins approach as well with no luck.
  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi Beth,
for debugging plugin dependencies once stuff is installed, see
Though I believe you're talking about feature dependencies before
stuff is installed, right? -- Not sure how P2 is meant to do this, but
note that you can always get old Update Manager back with

I just installed Eclipse SDK 3.4 RC3 and attempted to install cdt-master on top of that, via update manager.

Previously I meant to complain (altho it's probably a platform thing) that the dependencies are hard to debug in this.
In 3.3, if there was a missing dependency, there is a red 'X' right next to it, and deselecting it allows the install to proceed.
Mylin does this for me. I don't have it in this test build, and i like to walk thru the install and how it handles dependencies, especially missing ones, anyway.
3.4 RC1 and prior Doesn't show a red X and you have to read a bunch of rather cryptic text to figure out that the Mylin dependency is not there.
Deselecting the CDT myline bridge then allows installation of CDT to proceed.

In the install I just did, besides alot of things showing up twice (i think it did that last week late, too)
I'm getting all sorts of dependencies missing, can't figure out what they are, but somehow it allowed me to continue the install,
altho I don't feel all warm and fuzzy about it.

Is there another way I should be doing this?
Is there another place to track this problem?
