I've never seen this type of behaviour.  Before I tell you to upgrade to what's
in rawhide (or wait for 3.1 final next week - I'll be doing an FC4 update then),
try rm -rf ~/.eclipse and try again.  There always seem to be problems with
~/.eclipse when moving between versions and/or JVMs.

Comment 3 Axon 2005-09-04 14:44:42 UTC
I'm getting exactly the same error with 3.1.0_fc-0.M6.22. Even when I 'rm -rf
~/.eclipse' this issue persists.

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2005-11-01 19:41:02 UTC
I just tried to reproduce this bug with the proposed FC4 update (in
updates-testing) but I cannot.  If you can try out this update [1] and verify
that this issue is indeed fixed, I would appreciate it.


yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update eclipse-pde (or whatever)

Comment 5 Axon 2005-11-12 13:59:13 UTC
Seems to be working now for me on the latest version of Eclipse 3.1.1 downloaded
from the FC4 repo.

Comment 6 Axon 2005-11-12 14:09:29 UTC
Now I seem to be getting an NPE when I attempt to read information using extssh.
Not sure if it is related to this bug or a seperate issue (see attached

That's a separate issue:  bug 146782.

Can we close this?

Comment 9 John Thacker 2006-05-05 20:42:05 UTC
Closing due to lack of response.
