Re: [p2-dev] How to build the 3.4.2 release?

I suspect that you are missing to specify the bundle pool location when you are creating the profile.
Would you mind posting your command line here?

Re: [p2-dev] How to build the 3.4.2 release?




The crux of my problem is that when using the director app to create a
new installation with a bundle pool, the eclipse.ini file looks like
this:

-startup
../../../../eclipseBundlePool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.101.R34x_v20080819.jar
--launcher.library
../../../../eclipseBundlePool/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_1.0.101.R34x_v20080805
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
-install
/usr/local/google/users/tparker/profiles/test
-vmargs
-Xms40m
-Xmx256m

The config.ini osgi.framework line is:
osgi.framework=file\:../../../../eclipseBundlePool/plugins/..."

When I run this installation and use the p2 UI to install/uninstall
software, the EquinoxFwConfigFileParser.getOSGiInstallArea() function
uses the "-startup" parameter as the base for doing
relative<->absolute path translations on the osgi.framework property,
which is the wrong root.  It results in various kinds of corruption.

The EquinoxFwConfigFileParser hasn't changed at head, so this seems
like a current bug (altough I haven't tested yet).  It is kind of
curious that  the function called getOSGiInstallArea() is using the
"-startup" parameter when there is a correct "-install" parameter in
the eclipse.ini file it could be using instead.  But in my testing,
replacing the parameter used still resulted in corruption.
