I have been using eclipse for a while now. Since SuSE 9.x and it normally worked fine.
But, since upgrading to 10.2, I could not get it to work. It gives me horrendous java errors that I don't understand.
When I delete the $HOME/.eclipse directory, it starts up fine and things work. I import a project and I can use it. But, when I exit Eclipse, it looks like it is exiting, but the java process never die. I have to kill -9 it to get rid of it, and then my config is scewed up. If I try to start eclipse again, the java process exit with -1. I have to delete the $HOME/.eclipse directory again before I can continue.
I have java 1.5.0 installed with patches (java-1_5_0-sun-1.5.0_update10-2.1)
eclipse : --------- eclipse-platform-3.2.1-24 eclipse-scripts-3.2.1-24 eclipse-3.2.1-24 eclipse-jdt-3.2.1-24 eclipse-gtk2-3.2.1-24
I ran the latest eclipse updates, but it made no difference.
I have googled for a solution, but it seems that google-fu is not good on this.
Has anybody had a similar situation, or does anybody have any idea what could be wrong?
