I am running Linux Mandrake 10 with JDK 1.5.0 BETA 2. I just downloaded Eclipse 3.0 and when I run it I get the following error message:

Anyone know what this means?

The error happened with the GTK version. I downloaded and ran the Motif version and it worked just fine. But I HATE Motif. So if anyone has any clues...

I understand that Eclipse support for JDK1.5 is still provisional. Not sure on that though - anyone got a link that explains that sort of thing? My Googling of the Eclipse site hasn't yielded much info on the exact requirements / supported architectures.

In general I find the Eclipse doco a little scarce...took me an age to find http://eclipse-tools.sourceforge.net/shortcuts.html ... maybe I dunno where to look, though.

Seems strange though that if it were a Java issue that it would happen with GTK and not Motif. But who knows. I'll try by downloading 1.4 and running it with that instead of 1.5 and see what happens.

I agree, that would be strange. I was imagining that the offending code was in an area that was GTK-specific code. Maybe PlatformActivator is responsible for launching GUI platform-specific code.

Anyway, let us know if it's different with 1.4, I'm about to buy a laptop and I'll have to get Java and Eclipse up and running on Linux, so any advice is welcome!

Cheers,

Hi !

I got the same problem with JDK 1.4.2 on a Debian Sid (libgtk2.0-0 v2.4.3-2). See below for details:

eclipse.buildId=I200406251208
java.version=1.4.2_04
java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=linux, ARCH=x86, WS=gtk, NL=fr_FR

See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=68827

Specifically, make sure that you downloaded the Eclipse SDK, not the RCP, and that you installed into a clean directory (not over an older version).
