/usr/local/eclipse? That doesn't look like you're using our packages. Also,
you're using the Sun VM which we can't support. *However*, I know what your
problem is :) You're using the 32-bit JVM with the 64-bit JNI bits. If you
want to use the Sun VM, get their 64-bit VM.
rpm -qa '*eclipse*'

:) I don't doubt that you have the RPMs installed, but your log indicated that
eclipse was being run from /usr/local/. This is not where our RPMs install
things so I think you might be running an upstream download.
Either way, you need to do as I said above: get a 64-bit JVM and verify that
works. Running with stock FC6 should be fine but a proprietary JVM of the
64-bit flavour should work with the 64-bit Eclipse packages.
Re-opening until we get this resolved.

appearing when is eclipse is started is attached to as png file.
4. JAVA is installed in /usr/local/jaca/jdk1.6.0 (from SUN). This is a 32bit
JAVA. Maybe this explains the error(s).
Ooops: Now installed a 64bit JAVA (jre1.5.0_10), and now, eclipse starts without
problems. Thanks for your support.
