Description pfpenteado 2008-05-31 18:06:07 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to use Eclipse's internal browser to view the documentation, it
crashes Eclipse if I am using KDE. On Gnome, on the same system, there seems to
be no problem. This happens with any of the 3 independent installations of
Eclipse I have: Fedora Eclipse (x86_64) from Fedora 9 with all the current
updates, Photran (x86_64) and IDL (i386). It all worked fine on Fedora 8.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Eclipse on KDE
2. Open the help on the internal browser
3. Shift focus to the internal browser
Actual results:
Eclipse crashes the moment the focus moves to the internal browser.

Additional info:
The error message given after the crash:

JVM terminated. Exit code=1
-jar /usr/share/eclipse/startup.jar
-os linux
-ws gtk
-arch x86_64
-launcher /usr/lib64/eclipse/eclipse

I have no KDE machine on which to test this.  I'll see if I can find time to set
up a VM.

In the meantime, can you try with an upstream (download.eclipse.org) build?  I
suspect it won't show any internal browser stuff but I'm interested what the
results are there.  Try a 3.4 release candidate if possible (3.4 RC3 is out now).

Comment 2 pfpenteado 2008-06-11 18:38:31 EDT
I did not have a chance to try the new Eclipse. But after this week's updates
from the Fedora Updates repository, the problem is now gone. I do not know which
packages specifically fixed it, I just noticed that there were among them
updates to GTK and KDE, but not to Eclipse.
