[Wayland] eclipse freezes on start instead of showing workspace selector
Last modified: 2015-11-23 15:57:25 EST
Created attachment 1089101 [details]
gdb log attached to eclipse, with full backtrace on all threads
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
on every start on wayland, even with ~/.eclipse deleted
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start eclipse
1. Eclipse starts a splash screen
2. Eclipse hides the splash screen
3. Now it should display a workspace switcher. Instead it runs in a 100% CPU busy loop (single core)
Alternatively you can start eclipse-cdt (`$ cdtdebug`). It does not show a workspace switcher (workspace is preconfigured) but freezes with 100% CPU load when displaying the main window.
This bug has been fixed upstream in Eclipse: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=480986
I imagine it should be in Fedora 23 in the next week or so.
In the meantime, I suggest running Eclipse on X at least once to set a workspace location: that way you can launch on Wayland thereafter with a pre-selected workspace enabled.
Eric has confirmed the fix will work on F23, so I'll be pushing http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=11690227 as an update once it completes.
