Hi,
I have a fresh fedora 8 installation with Eclipse. However, when I try to startup eclispe, I get the following error message

An error has occurred. See the log file
/home/gkamendje/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_3.3.0_1543616141/configuration/1207052861035.log.

Attached is the log file.

It seems that eclipse is looking for some plug ins. I am not very familiar with eclipse and I have no clue on where to start. I made a search on google with the first error message but I could not find any relevant info on the topic.
Thanks for any hint.
Guy

What version of Java are you using?

Just type in terminal:

java -version

In my case I do use Sun Java 1.5.0 and clean installation of Fedora Eclipse works perfectly:


[rpavlyuk@opera ~]$ java -version
java version "1.5.0_12"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_12-b04)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_12-b04, mixed mode)

I use Java 1.7 see below the result of java -version
$ java -version
java version "1.7.0"
IcedTea Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b21)
IcedTea Client VM (build 1.7.0-b21, mixed mode)

Hm... Now we have to determine what problem do we have - is that a problem with JVM or with Eclipse installation :confused:

Please, do the following. Download latest cross-platform Eclipse package from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ and unpack to some folder, for example to /opt/eclipse. Then try to start the Eclipse SDK from just inpacked /opt/eclipse

BTW, I've been never trying to launch Fedora Eclipse on IcedTea so I'm interesting as well how to get it working ;)

The problem seems to be an Eclipse Installation problem. I have donwloaded Eclipse from Eclipse.org and I am able to run it from another directory.
