removing moblin-gtk-engine allows eclipse to start.
Comment 2 Andrew Overholt 2009-10-07 10:42:34 EDT
Could you try with a download from upstream and if it fails with that, too, file a bug at bugs.eclipse.org?  The SWT committers there will have a much better idea of where the problem lies.

Grab a .tar.gz from:


for your architecture, extract, and then run the included 'eclipse' binary.  If you have java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel installed, it should just work.

Comment 3 cje 2009-10-07 12:40:28 EDT
sorry, that downloaded eclipse crashes faster (with or without moblin-gtk-engine) with an error about /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- (which is from java-1.6.0-openjdk- and this in a pop-up window:

JVM terminated. Exit code=-1

Comment 4 Andrew Overholt 2009-10-07 12:46:18 EDT
Can you attach the hs_err file from that failure?  If there wasn't one generated, can you run it with the arguments:

-debug -consolelog

and attach the output here?  Thanks.
Comment 5 Earle Nietzel 2009-11-01 00:47:21 EDT
This may be happening because of selinux denying permission.

Try running eclipse with selinux in permissive mode? 

setenforce 0

Then start eclipse.
Comment 6 cje 2009-11-02 18:51:24 EST
looks like all is okay again now.



for the record - yes, setenforce 0 worked with the downloaded tarball version of eclipse.  thanks for that tip.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
