eclipse-java by default will download the source code and compile multiple different incompatible versions of eclipse. eclipse-java-bin will download and install the prepackaged Linux binary for eclipse's java edition (and no other version of eclipse)

Typically, the only difference for a package ending in -bin is it uses prebuilt binaries rather than compiling from source, but I specifically made this package because I was salty at how the eclipse-java PKGBUILD downloaded multiple versions of eclipse by default.

Removing the "&r=1" will result in a broken PKGBUILD. Try editing the PKGBUILD in a clean directory (that you haven't already run makepkg in) and try to install it using makepkg -si. Removing "&r=1" will cause makepkg to not actually download eclipse, but an html page with a link to download eclipse. As for mirror selection, I believe that's more of a complaint with eclipse's system than with this PKGBUILD. Hardcoding in a Chinese mirror would result in incredibly worse download speeds across the world, and this current setup seems to be the best for most people. If you have a problem with it, you can replace the source link in the PKGBUILD with your preferred mirror.

Well, that's not always true. I am in China and our country have eclipse mirrors. However, the offical download link would redirect to an Japanese mirror, which is pretty slow for us. I believe write a line to delete the "&r=1" at the end of the file name would be great for the people who need to change the download link.

Adding &r=1 at the end of the line is required. I should know, about a week ago I broke the PKGBUILD by omitting it. As you can see on the download page for eclipse, leaving out &r=1 will just download the webpage. Also on that page, you can see that there is a link to download from the best mirror, that is where I got the current source link (including &r=1)

Newer version of Eclipse 2021-03 is avaliable. I changed some lines of PKGBUILD to make it able to install:

pkgver=4.19 _releasemonth="2021-03" New 2021-03 sha512 is: 93d04fe9a69120b15d192d2574db4d67f4fc331edcbd1b3f90a5f5bb7434879e0c79cabf9a22976bddf0af2f28206ae838d4f3ec5123e52e278633ccd3489bf1

Also, download the package from a mirror is a good option. It is not required to add '&r=1' at the end of the line. Especially in some places where Global Internet connect is pretty slow.

I did start elcipse after update. I did check update from help menu and PyDev did update correctly but my C++ dev not. And I also missing marketplace client in help menu. Did I miss some info about changes? Is it bug? thanks

[EDIT] I did find solution. I did remove .eclipse directory and configure eclipse from scratch and everything works ok now.

Oops! Didn't realize the &r=1 was so important to the source mirror. Have now double checked the PKGBUILD and seems to be working okay now. Thanks everyone for the helpful comments!

As I see, the source points to which does not download the file.

You need to append &mirror_id=NUMBER which selects a mirror. Which one to use is something to be decided.

My suggestion is to enable something like

_mirror_id = 1099 # Change accordingly if you want faster speeds.

and then$_releasemonth/R/${pkgname%-bin}-$_releasemonth-R-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz&mirror_id=${_mirror_id}

The URL in the source goes to a mirror selection page. You need to use the direct link which has &r=1 appended to the end of it.

Seems like eclipse has the wrong checksum up. Verified package checksum with package on and they're the same. Anyone have a contact at eclipse?

juxuanu commented on 2021-03-12 11:57

Checksums are failing.
