Install problem

Asked by Svein Hansen


Just downloaded an are having issues during the eclipse install.

I'm running on: Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop, 64 bit

bzr plugins reports:
gtk 0.95.0
    Graphical support for Bazaar using GTK.

launchpad integration plugin for Bazaar.

xmloutput 0.8.0
    This plugin provides xml output for status, log, annotate, missing, info, version and plugins

Java -version reports:
java version "1.6.0_07"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 10.0-b23, mixed mode)

Eclipse About reports:
Version: 3.4.1
Build id: M20080911-1700

Update site:

I select version 1.1.0 and then hit "Install" in Eclipse. The popup says: "Calculating Requirements", then "Unable to complete the request" and then I get to see the details:

Cannot complete the request. See the details.
Format error in file: /tmp/p2Encoding30237.opb.

Any ideas?

In advance, thanks!

It seems it's a problem related to Eclipse 3.4, I just found this bug report [1] that it's related to you error. I don't think it's bzr-eclipse related, because in the bug comments it's happening with subclipse, subversive and m2eclipse. (looks like it's a bit random :-p)
Maybe you can add the error details to the bug.

I recommend to try installing it in a clean Eclipse installation. And then install all the other plugins.

Yes, that did the trick.

Initially, I had installed the PyDev plugin before trying to install bzr-eclipse.

I started fresh, and installed bzr-eclipse first, then PyDev. Now everything works fine.

Thanks for the help, and for the great work with the plugin :-)
