Core for Kepler : Betas now available
« on: April 25, 2014, 02:55:29 pm »
The binaries for SlickEdit Core 4.3 are now available in Beta for both Windows and Linux, both 32 and 64 bit platforms.
Use the following URL for your software update site: https://customer.slickedit.com/update/secore/kepler_beta

NB: Earlier betas that we published may have pointed you to the https://customer.slickedit.com/update/secore/kepler URL, and that location may still be present in your "Available Software Sites" list. Please make sure you point your update to the kepler_beta URL.

Thank you for the update.  I tried to tried to install the new beta and recived the following error:

An error occurred while collecting items to be installed
session context was:(profile=epp.package.cpp, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).
Unable to read repository at https://customer.slickedit.com/update/secore/kepler_beta/plugins/com.slickedit.core_4.3.0.jar.
Read timed out

This is on 64 bit windows 7 with 64 bit Eclipse Kepler C/C++.  Any ideas on how to fix this and is it happening to anyone else?

Thanks

Matthew

Were you able to get the package to install after a second attempt? If not, let me know. We do occasionally have times when customers experience timeouts, and we can provide you the contents of the Update Site as a zip file that you can point to locally. I can PM you a link to that if need be.

Thanks for the reply.  I was just able to get it downloaded and installed.  Seems like the timeout was due to something weird on my work network, as soon as I switch to personal network it installed fine.  Prob just have to stick with zip files from now one while at work.  Thanks again

I was able to install the kepler beta, but am unable to run the license manager.  I get a "The chosen operation is not currently available" message.  I have tried this with the 32 bit (1.8.0) and 64 bit (1.7.0) JRE

Thanks.  That error message usually means that it was unable to load one of the shared libraries required for SlickEdit Core.  So some dependency is likely missing preventing it from loading.  Are you running the 32-bit Eclipse?

64 bit eclipse.  SlickEdit Core for Kepler was expected to run on 64 or 32 bit eclipse

SlickEdit Core has several dependencies that may need to installed.  Off the top of my head, I know libgtk-x11-2.0, libgdk-x11-2.0, libgobject-2.0, libfontconfig are big ones, there may be others.

Try running eclipse using the -vstrace option on the command-line, we can narrow it down to which library is failing to load.  Then we can go from there.

The error msg is "com.slickedit.core: Could not load library: /opt/eclipse/plugins/com.slickedit.linux64.libs_4.3.0/slickedit/bin/libvsapi.so: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.15' not found (required by /opt/eclipse/plugins/com.slickedit.linux64.libs_4.3.0/slickedit/bin/libvsapi.so)
com.slickedit.core: Stopping Plugin"

Centos 6.5 includes glibc_2.12

64-bit Linux build needs at least glibc 2.5 or later.  The requirements page on the website and docs need to be updated to include 64-bit Linux requirements.

No support for RHEL or CentOS??? 

What unique features of glibc-2.15 is SEcore using or is Ubuntu the only distro that SEcore is supporting? 

Why pay for yearly maintenance?
