Description of problem:
/usr/bin/eclipse sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
LD_LIBRARY_PATH slows down application startup, especially if the application
uses a lot of shared libraries. 

Probably the reason that eclipse needs to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH is that firefox 
does not work without it. See: 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I've removed the LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting as per bug 168040 but I'm not sure if
it will still work with firefox.  I guess we'll have to see once we get a newly
built eclipse.

Comment 2 Andrew Overholt 2005-10-10 01:00:37 UTC
This will show up in the next rawhide build.  Currently, that's waiting on bug

Comment 3 Andrew Overholt 2005-10-11 11:21:57 UTC
This should show up in today's rawhide push (-15).

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2005-11-01 03:09:15 UTC
This is fixed in the proposed FC4 update (eclipse-3.1.1-1jpp_1fc.FC4.4).  The
fix for rawhide will have to wait on a fix for bug 133180 which is stopping me
building lucene on ia64 and ppc64 which is in turn stopping me re-building
Eclipse (since I want to add ia64 and ppc64) :) .

I guess I'll set up some good 'ol bug dependencies.

Comment 5 Andrew Overholt 2005-11-01 21:21:00 UTC
Okay, forgetting ia64 and ppc64 (which are new for FC Eclipse anyway), this is
now fixed.
