Description of problem:
When I run rssowl I get the following error:
java: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libswt-mozilla-gtk-3232.so: undefined
symbol: NS_StringContainerInit2

I'm pretty sure this rawhide system is up to date.

Uninstalling Mozilla-1.7.13 helped me with a similar problem.

Eclipse won't start on current Fedora-development, x86-64.

$ eclipse 
/usr/bin/java: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: NS_StringContainerInit2

I was also getting a GUI message box with the following text:

JVM terminated. Exit code=127
-jar startup.jar
-os linux
-ws gtk
-arch x86_64
-launcher /usr/bin/eclipse
-name Eclipse
-showsplash 600
-exitdata 290002
-vm /usr/bin/java
-jar startup.jar 

mozilla-1.7.13-1.1.fc5.x86_64 and firefox- were both installed.
 Uninstalling mozilla fixed the problem.  The mozilla package is not in the yum
repository, so it's obsolete.  Still, mere presence of mozilla should not be
breaking eclipse.

Thanks for the tip.  Removing mozilla fixed this for me as well, although now I
need to update the rssowl startup script to refer to firefox's libxpcom.so.

I just came across a similar JVM crash while trying to start Eclipse on a
newly-installed Fedora Core 6 RC2 system.  The difference in my case is that
mozilla was never installed -- mozilla doesn't even seem to be in the Core 6
distribution at all -- so I can't very well remove it.  Here are the errors I'm
getting.  From the console:

/usr/bin/java: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: NS_InitEmbedding

And from the GUI:

JVM terminated. Exit code=127
-jar startup.jar
-os linux
-ws gtk
-arch x86
-launcher /usr/bin/eclipse
-name Eclipse
-showsplash 600
-exitdata 22000d
-vm /usr/bin/java
-jar startup.jar

The .so file causing the error comes from the package libswt3-gtk2.

This should be fixed in 3.2.0-6.fc6.

Anthony, can you verify this is fixed?
