Cannot reproduce with Fedora 15 Eclipse eclipse-platform-3.6.1-5.fc15.x86_64, and eclipse-mpc-1.0.1-2.fc15.noarch. I was able to find and install a package from Eclipse Marketplace.

Why do you use non-Fedora Eclipse?

Anyway, reassigning to Eclipse.
Comment 2 Earle Nietzel 2011-04-04 15:41:23 EDT

When I was using eclipse that came with fedora I could not locate all of the WTP packages that I needed?

Regardless the JVM shouldn't be crashing like that.

Comment 3 Andrew Overholt 2011-04-04 16:07:05 EDT

I'm willing to bet a crash occurred due to an API change in XULRunner between the version upstream's SWT binary was built against and the one in Fedora 15.  The odd thing is that I can't make it crash on F15 x86_64 with a Helios SR2 package.

As for WTP not being around, it's not packaged in Fedora but one can add the Helios update site:


It's not present due to:


Unfortunately we can't support applications that were not installed from the Fedora repository so I'm going to have to close this as an upstream bug.  If you can reliably make it crash, I'm sure the upstream Eclipse developers would be interested in hearing about it:



Comment 4 Earle Nietzel 2011-04-04 16:21:58 EDT
Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the info, and agree with closing it (I was on F15 i686 with Helios SR2).

I will give installing WTP as you have mentioned a try using fedora eclipse.

I did find this bug already logged on icedtea's bugzilla:


Looks like an issue with xulrunner 2.0 as it can't be replicated with 1.9.2

Comment 5 Earle Nietzel 2011-04-04 17:26:49 EDT
I was not successful at installing any new software from the WTP eclipse helios software update site.


I then tried


to no avail eclipse kept showing the same problem:

An error occurred while collecting items to be installed

Thanks for opening another bug, Earle.
Comment 7 Earle Nietzel 2011-04-05 01:01:51 EDT
I was able to get around this problem by adding:


in eclipse.ini
Comment 8 smilyface 2011-07-22 08:18:26 EDT
Hello all,

i am new to this bugzilla.

Facing same problem :
Eclipse Helios crashes with Fedora 15 KDE

But actually it was working fine..for the past 2-3 weeks.

Now my problem is coming when:
1. i am opening eclipse.

2. It will not get crash if i am not using for a long time..!!

3. Using a java project.

4. Withing 2-3 minutes it will be getting crashed.

I installed some plugins before. But i don't know that whether it made this problem. Because i installed ShellED for editing shell script in eclpse (installed before 2weeks).

I tried
1. Increased memory ( i mean xms , xmx , maxpermsize in eclipse.ini file.)
2. Changed java path from openjdk to jdk
3. Did what he told in :
4. And at last as Earle Nietzel told added:

is there any other way..?
Comment 9 Alexander Kurtakov 2011-07-22 08:25:45 EDT
Yes use eclipse from rpm it is fixed to not crash because of xulrunner.
`yum install eclipse`
Comment 10 smilyface 2011-07-27 07:35:49 EDT
oh Alexander,

i need Eclipse-Helios itself. I can not use Fedora-eclipse as my application needs so.

So i need it to be cleared in Helios version itself.
Comment 11 Alexander Kurtakov 2011-07-27 07:49:44 EDT
Well, there is nothing we can do for fixing your downloaded eclipse to work. Please open a bug at Eclipse.org to fix it to work with latest xulrunner.
