Comment 1 Andrew Overholt 2005-09-01 21:28:33 UTC
Just so people know, this is still waiting on the CVS issue fix.

Comment 2 Tadej Janež 2005-09-02 07:56:47 UTC
Thanks for the info.

I hope the CVS issues get resolved ASAP, so we can finally have Eclipse 3.1 on FC4.

Hi, next week this bug is going to be 3 months old.  Any news regarding this
issue ?  For a distro that heavly focused on development (specially in java) I
think this may be too much.

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2005-10-02 12:15:38 UTC
As I said on 1 September (and as is indicated by the dependency tree), this is
waiting on bug 161483.

Comment 5 Andrew Overholt 2005-10-28 20:22:12 UTC
Please test eclipse-3.1.1-1jpp_1fc.FC4.4 when it appears in updates-testing (see
fedora-announce-list (and/or fedora-test-list)).

Comment 6 Charles C. Van Tilburg 2005-11-09 13:23:00 UTC
Cannot update:

# rpm -Fvh eclipse*
error: Failed dependencies:
        eclipse-rcp = 1:3.1.1-1jpp_1fc.FC4.4 is needed by
        libswt3-gtk2 = 1:3.1.1-1jpp_1fc.FC4.4 is needed by

        lucene-demo is needed by eclipse-platform-3.1.1-1jpp_1fc.FC4.4.i386

Comment 7 Andrew Overholt 2005-11-09 20:21:52 UTC
yum update eclipse-pde (or eclipse-jdt or eclipse-platform or whatever)

That'll bring in the deps you need.

Comment 8 Charles C. Van Tilburg 2005-11-09 20:31:46 UTC
Negative.  The mirror at does not contain the files and
I refuse to use yum.

Comment 9 Charles C. Van Tilburg 2005-11-09 20:45:38 UTC
Correction: the files do exist in the mirror.

rpm -Fvh is just too stupid to see the files sitting there, so one
must install them manually, then run the rpm -Fvh.

Comment 10 Charles C. Van Tilburg 2005-11-09 20:46:42 UTC
Also, the elipse*rcp* stuff is a fun little tar baby.

Comment 11 Andrew Overholt 2005-11-09 23:38:51 UTC
(In reply to comment #8)
> I refuse to use yum.

May I ask why?

Comment 12 Charles C. Van Tilburg 2005-11-09 23:50:46 UTC
Sure.  I don't need yum.  And I don't want to be tracked.  

I mirror the updates repository and run an 'rpm -Fvh *.rpm'.  I maintain 
that this should work without pain.

Sitting in a mirror'ed rpm update repository, FRESHEN should be able to 
figure things out and do the right thing.  In this case (FCOL!) its a 
FRESHEN DEPENDANCY, sitting right there, and its even on the friggin'
command line: 'rpm -Fvh *.rpm'!

If 'rpm -Fvh' worked correctly, things would be easier.  But its OK, I 
can do it manually.  Red Hat is getting more like Microsoft every day.

According to the idiot in charge of maintaining rpm, in response to my bug 
report about this issue, my suggestions for improvement, and expectations
for correct and reasonable behaviour of the tool, are not welcome.

I will be considering a move to another distro, and set of tools that 
works right.

Comment 13 Charles C. Van Tilburg 2005-11-09 23:57:28 UTC
Further, since I have managed up to 150 machines by myself, I think client 
access to such a read-only update repository mirror, from which they can 
all do an 'rpm -Fvh *.rpm' has a certain network bandwidth good-citizen 
type of cache effect.  

But if the 'Package Manager' tool is defective, obviously, there will be 
annoying and unnecessary problems.
