Description Andrea Santilli 2005-06-15 09:38:36 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; it-IT; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Running Eclipse as root completely hangs the system (1 x Pentium4 HT 2600MHz, maybe it's because of the smp).
When I run it again (as root, after forced reboot) I get an error message saying to see details in a log file. On that log file there's written as follows:

!SESSION 2005-06-15 10:21:08.681 -----------------------------------------------
java.fullversion=GNU libgcj 4.0.0 20050519 (Red Hat 4.0.0-8)

If I can't run it as root, it's supposed I must install a copy of new plugins for every user...

Running it as normal user (after doing all I've written before) I get the same error.

I had to uninstall eclipse and all its depedancies, erase /usr/share/eclipse dir and install it again. Now it runs good (only as normal user).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run eclipse as root. The system completely hangs.
2. Restart eclipse after forced reboot
3. I get that error

Actual Results:  System hang, wrong configuration.

Expected Results:  Eclipse run perfectly

Additional info:

Running on a SMP kernel (1 x Pentium 4 HyperThreading 2600MHz)

I confirm, crashes the whole system if run as root.
System is a PIII 1GHz mono-cpu with 256Mo RAM and SCSI160 disk, so seems not SMP
