They were made on win32 and somehow, they don't work on Linux. I've
managed to compile the plugin on Linux but it doesn't work
very reliable :-(

For those of you, who want to have a look, I've uploaded the patch
to

    http://www.philmann-dark.de/linux-20040125.patch.gz

You need Eclipse 2.1.2 for Linux or you'll have to fix a couple
of paths.

1. Get the sources manually via subversion
2. cd subclipse/subclipse/ui
3. ant -f build-all.xml zip.plugin
4. Unpack the resulting org.tigris.subversion.subclipse_0.8.2.zip
   in the same folder which contains your eclipse folder (ie.
   not *inside* the eclipse folder); the paths in that archive begin
   with eclipse/plugins/org.tigris.subversion.subclipse...
5. Start eclipse again
6. Open the preferences
7. Select the pages Team -> SVN
8. Select "SVN command line (beta)".

Here are a couple of bugs in which I ran:

1. The arguments for user and password are wrong. For some reason,
   I get
   
        --user "digullapwd" --password ""

    instead of

        --user "digulla" --password "pwd"
2. "Team -> Compare to latest revision" doesn't work
3. "Commit..." fails with "svn: '...path-of-eclipse...' is not a working copy"
    (I guess that svn is run in the wrong directory).
4. "svn up" works but after the update, all the revision info is gone
   from the display (revision and date after the filenames).

*sigh*
