Please run eclipse from the command line with -consolelog and post the output.
Can you also post the version you are using? To get this run 'rpm -q
eclipse-platform' on the command line. Thanks.

Try rpm -e mozilla
Comment 5 Dan Brady 2006-09-22 13:50:16 EDT
oh wow! thank you so very much! that did the trick! thanks again!

Comment 6 Ben Konrath 2006-09-22 14:01:31 EDT
I added "Conflicts: mozilla" to the libswt3-gtk2 sub-package so this shouldn't
happen anymore. This will appear in 3.2.0-7.fc6.
Comment 7 Mary Ellen Foster 2006-10-02 11:08:41 EDT
Will that conflict mess up anything for people upgrading from FC5? I'm trying to
track down a different eclipse-upgrading-from-FC5 problem, and I'm having
trouble doing 'yum --enablerepo=development update eclipse\*' because of that
conflict, and I can't just rpm -e mozilla on this (mostly FC5) system:
sudo rpm -e mozilla
error: Failed dependencies:

In particular, it's needed by eclipse-platform, so I can't just "yum remove" it
without removing eclipse, which negates the thing I'm trying to test.
Comment 8 Mary Ellen Foster 2006-10-02 11:16:05 EDT
Okay, the problem with the upgrade was quite probably that I still had the FC5
repositories enabled in yum along with development, so it kept trying to choose
FC5 mozilla instead of FC6 firefox to satisfy the libxpcom.so dependency in
libswt3-gtk2 ... so maybe a false alarm.
