Take a look at this wiki on the eclipse website, regarding the use of
git to clone packages to your local system. For example, execute the following to clone the C-Development-Toolkit:
git clone git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/cdt/org.eclipse.cdt.git
You could also try to find a way to get it with
wget; regardless, keep in mind that you should have a working java development toolkit.
Furthermore, you could create a
eclipse.repo file in
/etc/yum.repos.d/ as per this example with the EclipseSCADA project. For a general Eclipse environment, maybe try to include the following in that file:
name=Eclipse Kepler repo
dnf provides an option for copr, Fedora's third-party repository system, which makes it much easier for users to install packages not available in the distribution repos.
$ dnf copr
enable name/project [chroot]
copr enable rhscl/perl516 epel-6-x86_64
copr enable ignatenkobrain/ocltoys
copr disable rhscl/perl516
copr list ignatenkobrain
copr search tests
Then, to search for eclipse, do:
dnf copr search eclipse
mbooth/eclipse-luna : This repository provides Eclipse Luna (4.4) for Fedora 20.
: Fedora 20 ships with Eclipse Kepler (4.3) so this repository provides builds of Eclipse Luna for those who want the very latest Eclipse on a stable Fedora release.
: If you have problems, please contact me directly via email (email@example.com) or IRC (mbooth on Freenode channels #fedora-devel #fedora-java and #fedora-uk)
Finally, as per the example, enable the name/project and install
dnf copr enable mbooth/eclipse-luna
At the time of writing this, the repo is set-up for fedora20 and fedora21; so, the user might have to make some changes to the baseurl in
/etc/yum.repos.d/_copr_... file until the maintainer sorts it out.
