Eclipse P2= Epic Fail

Written on August 11, 2008 – 9:51 am | by mpayne

On both my windows work machine and Linux Desktop at home the p2 update manager was not able to cut it.  Halfway though re-installing various I used to, I used to linked in via external folder(using the .link method), P2 got into an unresolvable dependency problem that pretty much locked it from doing any further updates.  This happened twice(e.g. both machines).

By looking p2 removal note, I used the script provided in this bug issue.
You pretty much put downloaded eclipse archive(s) in the “source” folder and let the script do its thing.

With the p2 deleted from my eclipse installations, updates seem to go smooth again.

Given the popularity of the bug, I am going to guess that I am not the only one who is having a problem.
