Re: [cdt-dev] How to build OS X Version of CDT

Thanks for the heads up. Currently updating everything. Then will have to reapply patches.

Get the Eclipse project set file (click on the link). That gives you a file that specifies all the standard plugins that should be checked out to work on CDT. You then use that file with

You should use Eclipse 3.6M4 to work on CDT.

I have the following CVS server connected:

Is there another cvs root that I need to mount in order to get the DSF

Ok, So I found the DSF and DSF-GDB under the CVS-HEAD which I am
assuming is no longer compatible with the CDT_6_0 branch?

From other emails I am assuming that I need to download the latest
Milestone of Helios in order to use the CVS HEAD for CDT?

Again, I guess I just need a bit of "hand-holding" to get started.

Subject: [cdt-dev] How to build OS X Version of CDT

So I have all the OS X patches up and working and I would like to
actually build a local CDT installation for my own use. I tried
following the directions at
<>> at_it_can_be_used_with_an_external_Eclipse_installation.3F
but choice (a) gave an error "Unable to find plug-in:
org.eclipse.cdt.dsf_0.0.0. Please check the error log for more
details.". If I look down all the projects that were checked
out, I am
not seeing any dsf type of projects.

 I tried the org.eclipse.cdt.releng directory by "cd'ing"
into that
directory and issuing the "ant" command but that just produced more

Any gentle nudges in the proper direction would be much appreciated.
