Re: [equinox-dev] Equinox aspects: Several problems for Load-Time-Weaving in a eclipse product!

I have an update site for equinox aspects here:

You can try to install from there.  The installation will
automatically update your config.ini for you.  Should work, but you
need to have AspectJ pre-installed.

If Martin's suggestions don't work for you, you can try installing
from the update site.
