CentOS 9 Comments

Hi

Just thought I might ask my recent question about Eclipse again, only in a slightly different way:

Is anyone here using the Eclipse version supplied with the CentOS 6
distro (as opposed to a build downloaded from www.eclipse.org)? Does it work for you? Are you able to install additional components via the built-in software setup mechanism?

Thanks,

– Toralf

  • I am using Eclipse for a C project on CentOS 6. Eclipse was installed using YUM and only from the CentOS repositories.

    Except that I cannot seem to enable global variables in debug mode all is working well.

    I haven’t added any plugins or components except via YUM.

  • I added additional components to edit perl scripts. It works great for me.

  • OK. I’m struggling a bit with something entirely different (UML diagram support), but the reason could be that I haven’t managed to find the right installation source locations (which is never easy), rather than an issue with the Eclipse base. One thing I’ve noticed, though, is that there aren’t a lot of sources listed by default. Was that the same for you?

    OK. Looks a lot like what I have, except I’m using the x86_64 versions. Maybe that’s a bit of an issue. Then there is a question of the java platform. I’m using the bundled openjdt release…

    Thanks,

  • OK. One problem I have, is that the C/C++ support seems incomplete, even though I have installed the cdt rpm. Just wondering, what do you see when you press “what’s already installed”, or whatever it’s called (I forget, and I don’t have my installation right here), in the “Add software” dialog within Eclipse.

    Thanks,

  • I’ve got it to work, now. Not sure what exactly did the trick, but the following helped:

    # yum install eclipse-\*
    # yum remove eclipse-nls htmlparser

    After this, various C++ components and *a lot* of other pieces, too, were added to the Installed Software list. I very much doubt that the installation actually added all the modules. Instead I suspect that in the past, there was some kind of problem that caused the system to stop loading components that were actually installed at a certain stage – and that this issue was resolved by the install command. If you know what I
    mean…

  • Finding and installing .i686 packages to make things work on x86_64
    platform could be better.

    i managed to get updates from within eclipse to work, but it was not as straightforward as i would have thought.

    i needed those updates to get android-sdk stuff to work at all.

    i followed your instructions for getting C/C++ projects to work as expected and that seems to have worked! but android stuff is no longer working. i want to say android requires htmlparser, but that will have to wait till morning for verification.

  • Well, yes, based on some of the feedback here it’s tempting to assume that the i686 builds are better tested…

    Note that the htmlparser remove mentioned above was not strictly necessary – it was just that I noticed this package being auto-installed when I added all the other stuff, and found that it could be safely removed (along with whatever used it) without breaking the C/C++ support.
