And ultimate goal would be to get Eclipse Foundation to once again adopt aarch64 for good and have those builds done along with other builds
Thank you for the kind words. Yes, I should - I should try to push it through with Eclipse foundation - but I got sidetracked (as always) and never got around to do so...loboris wrote: This is really a great work, thanks.
I've tested it on my own Ubuntu Mate arm64 image on RPi4 with 4GB and it works perfectly. I've imported couple of my (quite large) C/C++ projects, and all was working without any issue.
I've tested it also on Odroid C2 (Armbian Ubuntu 20.04), which only has 2GB of RAM, and it is quite usable. 1.6GB was used during indexing of the large project, but it finished successfully as well as the project build (with some swapping, so the speed was not great).
I hope you will continue to work on this project and I fully agree with your statementAnd ultimate goal would be to get Eclipse Foundation to once again adopt aarch64 for good and have those builds done along with other builds
I'm aware of that (unfortunate) fact. I've tried to update and ended up with unusable instalation.clicky wrote: ↑Mon Aug 10, 2020 10:50 amAnyway, word of warning - I've realised (hard way) that I didn't update p2 (or whatever is that part of Eclipse called) so it still pulls new code packages as a part of update for x86 and that would completely break it (after update). So, although some updates are working fine - core ide updates are going to fail But, again, as they are never built for aarch64 (arm64) in the first place they'll never have right so libraries anyway.
I'm certain it can be done - but the question is should it be? Maybe pushing towards proper installation distributed by Eclipse foundation would be far betterloboris wrote: I'm aware of that (unfortunate) fact. I've tried to update and ended up with unusable instalation.
I think it is enough to disable "Latest Eclipse Release" (or maybe all software sites?) not to receive updates.
Could the updates be disabled by default? I couldn't find the place where to do that.
Thanks! That's good to know!
