Eclipse failure to install Subversive

Previously when I have installed Subversive under Eclipse I have had no problem. I have just set up Eclipse on a new computer and configured Subversive in the install.

I have configured
Subversive:
http://download.eclipse.org/technology/subversive/0.7/update-site/
and
Subversive SVN Connectors:
http://www.polarion.org/projects/subversive/download/eclipse/2.0/update-site/

My problem is that the first update-site for Subversive is missing a plugin. The plugin "SVN Team Provider (Incubation) is not there (perhaps its there, but Eclipse does not recognize it). It is somehow missing.

If you look at the following instructions
http://www.eclipse.org/subversive/documentation/gettingStarted/aboutSubversive/install.php

There should be 3 choices to select in the "SVN Team Provider Plugin (Incubation)", but I only get two. I have tried several different mirrors, but them all give me only two choices where there should be 3.

I can not install the other choices of Subversive because the one that is missing is the svn core plugin.

The eclipse versjon is 3.3.2

I downloaded the archive of Subversive and took a look inside. There I found the SVN core plugin available. Either Eclipse does not find it or it has discarded it.

Hi,

I have the exact same problem. I even installed a clean Eclipse 3.3.2. I got the option the first time I contacted the update site. I got an error that it was missing a dependency.

So I exited the update wizard, enabled the Europe discovery site hoping that the missing dependency might be in there, but the consecutive tries the choice to install org.eclipse.team.svn / org.eclipse.team.svn.core was not there any more.

If you find any solution please post it here, I will do the same.

I figured out a workaround.

Download the archived version of Subversive from here: http://www.eclipse.org/subversive/downloads.php

You'll notice it's the same version as the one on the update site.

Then extract from archive the folders:

\features\
\plugins\

Into:

..\your-eclipse-install-directory\

You don't need any of the other files in the archive.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
