It was almost a year ago when I last used Eclipse to work on some Java
projects and everything was going fine.
Today, it freezed on its splash screen on every launch.
I first removed ~/.eclipse to no avail.
When I removed path/to/my/workspace/.metadata Eclipse did open a fresh
window where I should have been able to re-create my Java project ...
unless there was no way to initiate Java projects anymore.
I purge eclipse and its dependencies :
# apt-get autoremove eclipse* --purge
Then did a fresh install :
$ dpkg -l eclipse* | grep ^ii
ii eclipse 3.8.1-10 all Extensible Tool
Platform and Java IDE
ii eclipse-jdt 3.8.1-10 all Eclipse Java
Development Tools (JDT)
ii eclipse-pde 3.8.1-10 amd64 Eclipse Plug-in
Development Environment (PDE)
ii eclipse-platform 3.8.1-10 amd64 Eclipse platform
without development plug-ins
ii eclipse-platform-data 3.8.1-10 all Eclipse platform
without development plug-ins (data)
ii eclipse-rcp 3.8.1-10 amd64 Eclipse Rich
Client Platform (RCP)
Still, there is no way to generate a java project.
Did I overlooked anything ?
I'am running debian testing.
Thanks in advance for any hint.
