Default eclipse plugin installation

Hi,

I've emerged dev-util/eclipse-sdk (version 3.4-r2)
and comes up nicely.
But when I try to download a plugin
(e.g. for C++ or Python) using
Help -> Software Updates

I get

Cannot launch the Update UI. This installation has not been
configure properly for Software Updates.

What am I missing?

Many thanks for a hint,

See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=239785

A workaround is to use java-overlay - that team has kindly prepared 3.4.1 for
us.

I cant remember where in preferences it was but there is an option to
change to "classic" update style, this works a treat and should solve
your problem without having to go to overlay's and the like.

OK, I found -->Windows -->Preferences -->General -->Capabilities

and activated >Classic, >Developement and >Team

then hit apply.

That fixes the -->Help -->Software updates button.


all good.



But I still cannot seem to find/figure out how to install "C"

I get 2 buttons:

-->Help -->Software Updates

one yields: Cannot launch the Update UI. This installation has not
been configured properly for Software Updates.

The other one:
-->Help -->Software updates( is tabbed with 2 choices):

Find and install
and
Manage Configuration


Exploring every option under each button, neither show me plugin modules
to install?


Any help or a wiki is much appreciated. I'm just trying to install
C (CDT) at the moment, but other language supports is of interest
to me too.
