Please note: THE PACKAGE-DOWNLOAD-FEATURE OF ECB IS COMPLETELY DEACTIVATED SINCE VERSION 2.33! Please got to the website of ECB and download and install “by hand”:
Go to http://ecb.sourceforge.net and download the latest release (or if you are brave and tough the latest CVS-snapshot) from the download section.
Save the archive (either *.tar.gz or *.zip) in a suitable location of your disk.
Extract the archive with a suitable extraction-tool. The archive will extract into a new directory ecb-<version> whereas <version> is either the version number of the downloaded release or “latest” in case of the CVS-snapshot. (example for a release: The archive extracts into a new subdirectory ecb-2.33.
The newly created subdirectory contains all files of ECB in the needed subdirectory structure.
Note: Do not change the subdirectory structure of the extracted archive - this will prevent ECB from working correctly!
ECB will perform some requirements checks, especially for CEDET.
Remark: By setting the option
nil you can prevent ECB from checking correct versions of CEDET but
it's strongly recommended not to do this!
If the version-check in (4) fails then you have to install a newer version of CEDET which fulfill the version-number ECB reports to you after its version check.
See the instruction of CEDET how to do this. You will find CEDET at http://cedet.sourceforge.net
For setting up CEDET see Setting up CEDET/semantic.
If you have installed a new CEDET-version you MUST re-byte-compile ECB unless you run ECB not byte-compiled!
