Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427986
Eclipse seg faults on IcedTea but not with Sun JVM
Last modified: 2008-02-04 16:37:56 EST
Description of problem:
Eclipse segfaults when I delete a src file. It also segfaults when I create a
package. It deletes the package and deletes the source file but segfaults.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load up Eclipse
2. Create a new package
3. Disappears but if I run it from console the output is Segmentation fault
It should remove the file, create the package or create the new file.

$f; rpm -qV $f; done

I can't duplicate this problem. Are you getting hs_* files in the directory
from which you've run Eclipse?
Try running with -consolelog -debug and see if you get anything on the console.
Tom, have you seen anything like this? Note that he doesn't have subclipse
installed which I believe your other crasher did have.

Output from running the -consolelog and -debug
That is the output I get.
No hs-* files at all I get those with netbeans which fails to even load I'm not
to sure if that would help but if so I can upload the netbeans log.
This really looks like a JVM issue. Can you try it with another JVM?
java-gcj-compat will work but I'm more interested in results with a Sun VM.
As in try with Sun's JRE?

Yes, please. If you can.

error log from eclipse
I still doesn't show that I have java on the java page for some reason so that
may be the reason.
No, the JVM just needs to be set up properly in
Window->Preferences->Java->Installed JREs. I think this looks like an IcedTea
bug. I'll re-assign there for now.
I can't reproduce this at all. I tested this with a few versions of IcedTea and

It looks like it is seg faulting with Sun's JRE as well. This is not an IcedTea
bug... I suspect something is wrong with a different interfering package
You are right it is something wrong with my system. I actually re-installed the
yesterday and it works fine.
Netbeans works fine with icedtea as well so I was going to close this bug as
notabug but something dumb in my previous system that I had done.
