successfully installed the full PlugIn on my OSX 10.6.6
(as others mentioned: would be great to install from updatesite instead of a full download - that's not eclipse-like ;-)
then I wanted to add SDK 126.96.36.199:
- added the updatesite http://www.blackberry.com/go/eclipseUpdate/3.6/jav
- installed new software SDK 5.0
installation went well
5.0 was listed in the Plug-ins
but I cannot use it because I got an error that fledge.exe is missing
** question: does this mean I can only develop for SDK 6.0 on OSX 1.3.1 ?
then imported a sample - worked well
load this on the device (Torch w 6.0) - worked well and runs
now wanted to debug, but don't know how to install the debug files because the link seems broken:
but the most important question now is for me: can I test and debug 5.0 Devices ?
in the Developer Blog I read
Additionally, we are delivering instructions on how you can find debug files for pre 6.0 devices for your debugging needs.
but there are only 6.0 debug files listed to download at
and no documentation because of 404
see also attachments with errors installing 5.0

Hi Ekke. There was an issue with the devzone documentation link that you mentioned. I believe it has now been resolved.
While we are currently only publishing 6.0 pre-built debug packages. the following docs topic has instructions on how to create your own debug packages.
This will require access to a Windows environment, however. Further, as things currently stand, we only support development against 6.0 in the MAC environment. That is why downloading the 5.0 SDK does not work correctly in your MAC environment.

thanks - the link no works
as I understand you right:
now I can create my debug packages for other devices and OS versions, but you only support 6.0 on the Mac and all 6.0 debug files are alreadypre-configured.
sounds like catch-22 ;-)
but only supporting 6.0 on OSX is a showstopper for me because I also have to deliver 5.0
so it seems I still have to wait....

Hi Ekke. Yes, that pretty much summarizes the situation. Unfortunately, if you do need to target pre-6.0, then you would be better served with the Windows version.

can you give explanation how to put the debug files for the mac SDK?
I already unpacked the debug files 9800/188.8.131.527 to directory,
but where to put the directory (relative to the eclipse plugin directory),
because I ran the debug from device but no popup shown to select the debug directory,
the popup just alert that no debug for net_rim_cldc and net_rim_os.
anyone success with the debug files on mac?
please help. thank you.

Hello arv. It does not matter where on your file system you put your debug files. In the popup alert that tells you that no debug information is available for net_rim_cldc and net_rim_os, there should be a browse button. Clicking on this button and pointing to the directory where you put your debug package is how you hook things up. After that, the tool will remember where the debug files are and will match it when you attempt to debug a device matching this debug bundle version.
Please let us know if you have success with this.

as I told before, when the popup screen alert no debug,
the alert didn't have "browse" button, only "ok" button.
I attached the captured window.
so how can I browse the directory?
thank you for your help.

Do you remember whether, at some point, if you selected the option "Don't ask any more"?
Can you please check in BlackBerry Java Plug-in For EClipse -> Preferences -> BlackBerry Java Plug-in -> Warnings, and ensure the "Prompt for missing debug files” option is checked?

I don't remember when last time I selected "don't ask anymore",
because I used the workspace for a long time and different SDKs version,
but, I found the "Prompt for missing debug files” option is unchecked,
thank you for your help..
I can't try the debug on device write now,
because I have problem with the sign process (always error/timeout).
but, I'm sure your information is the answer of my problem.

same happens for me:
getting the alert that no debug info was available.
there's no way to select the folder where the extracted debug files are.
if I check in preferences "prompt for missing debug files" then I was asked for hundreds of single debug files of apps installed at the device, but I was never asked to select the folder of extracted debug files for the device. so checking this option also doesn't help really
