This started out as an entry in bugzilla, but I am posting here in hopes
of receiving advise from a wider audience.
I am running an up-to-date rawhide (4/8/2014). Eclipse version is
KEPLER (1:4.3.2-3.fc20) with eclipse-m2e-core-1.4.0-11.1.fc20.
I am attempting to create a new eclipse project using a maven archetype.
When I click on New->Project...->Maven->Maven Project->Next I get the
New Maven Project wizard. I select "Use default Workspace location" and
click Next. I get the next dialog box in the wizard with a dialog box
saying "No archetypes currently available. The archetype list will
refresh when the indexes finish updating.". I notice in GKrellM, that
the CPU usage and the LAN usage rises substantially for about 30 - 45
seconds, then returns to normal. However, nothing changes in the dialog
box. I'm not sure if this is relevant or not, but I'm running inside a
KVM qemu instance with SELINUX=enforcing.
In bugzilla (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1015324
someone resolved his issue by adding more space to /tmp. However,
following his suggestion to use watch -n1 -d 'du -sh /tmp', there was
no change is the available file space in /tmp.
Has anyone else seen this issue?
Has anyone else gotten it to work successfully?
Am I perhaps missing some dependent rpms?
Are the contents of catalog.xml normally provided in an rpm package or
are they normally downloaded from the master repository?
Do I need to change something in the "Configure" dialog box?
If eclipse is attempting to download the archetype catalog.xml file,
does it use the normal http ports or do I have a firewall issue?
Any suggestions or references would be greatly appreciated.
