### How can I install the Eclipse platform on Fedora 21?

I had been using Fedora 20 on an older computer and just installed F21 on a newer one. When I try to install Eclipse in the Gnome Software Center, it takes a long time (over 30 minutes), and then it says that the software could not be installed. I could try installing Eclipse using yum, but I'm not sure which command would do the exact same things as the Software Center: yum install eclipse or yum install eclipse-platform.

I don't know if it makes a difference that the first time I tried installing Eclipse, I restarted the computer in the middle of the installation. Running yum clean all after that didn't help, however.

Please advise me how I can install the Eclipse platform on Fedora 21.

Thank you.
