I love SL6 so far. But it is shipping with Eclipse-Helios and I want Shiny new Eclipse-Indigo. How do I remove Helios and then install Indigo?

Simply telling Eclipse to update only gets Helios to current version of Helios not next version Indigo.

I tried using Add/Remove software but this only lets me UNCHECK Helios and that does not seem to remove the packages. Also, I could not see how to "install" Indigo so I just created a link to it on the desktop. Now I can run it but it is not in the menu. So my install is a bit of a mash.

I know this is probably something easy to do but I also cannot find where to look it up. Another question I would like to ask (mildly related to the topic) is. IS THERE A BOOK about SL I should get as a reference that shows how to do this type of stuff?

Thanks for your help.

Since SL = CentOS = RHEL, any up-to-date book about CentOS or Redhat Enterprise Linux will do.

For the books you may want to look at are here. They are all on Red Hat but thats top level of SL. SL is built from RHEL.
