Java crash log
I'm using a downloaded (from eclipse.org) Eclipse Helios 3.6 and I was trying to open the Eclipse Marketplace by pressing "Help" -> "Eclipse Marketplace..." . This setup is working on multiple machines with Fedora 16 (i686/x86_64) so I think that the Eclipse version should not be the problem.
From the attached hs_err_pid10569.log file I suspect there is some problem with xulrunner.
Please note that it is the same when I'm using an Oracle Java 1.6.

Moving to eclipse, please reassing to right componnent, Java maybe?
Eclipse 3.6 from eclipse.org is working only with XULRunner 1.8.x - 3.6.x and none of them is shipping on Fedora 17 as they are really old and have a number of other problems. There is really nothing we (Fedora) can do about it.
I strongly recommend using the Eclipse from Fedora repositories as we have disabled the xulrunner because of its everchanging api/abi and switched to webkit by default. See http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#browserlinux if you want to play manually with things.
Closing as wontfix - if there is a problem with Eclipse from fedora repositories please reopen.
