[equinox-dev] Equinox initializer

Hey all,

In Fedora, we used to use Eclipse Equinox initializer to extract all
*.so files from the installation before the Eclipse was actually
installed via rpm. This had some advantages:
  * Reduced disk usage for people with tight user.homes or using nfs.
  * Ability to run Eclipse when home is mounted as noexec (for security

This is no longer the case, because I can find those libraries
find /usr/lib64/eclipse/configuration -name *.so

in my home:
find ~/.eclipse -name *.so

The first thing that I've noticed is that bundle numbers had changed
(and they do actually change if I call eclipse -clean, although not

What may be the cause of this behavior? How to get back to the good ol'
behavior where *.so files were not duplicated?

Interesting documentation is:

Bug 90535 - .so files installed in a strange location

Best regards,
