By the way. I tested eclipse of the Fedora 4 distribution and eclipse 3.1 taken
from Both results in a hanging system.
On the other hand I tested eclipse 3.1 also on SuSE 9.1 on the same computer.
There the problem did not happen.

I was using Eclipse v3.1 on Fedora core 1 and had no problem.
When I switched to Fedora core 4:

- Eclipse v3.1 is working but has some problems (selection highlighting does not

- Eclipse v3.1.1 both the source recompiled with JDK 1.5 and the binary
distribution eclipse-SDK-3.1.1-linux-gtk.tar.gz do not work
1. in a new workspace:
Unable to read workbench state.Workbench UI layout will be reset
and then I have very few menu items enabled.

2. in a workspace with Eclipse projects, I do not have the previous error, but
when I try to open one project, I get:

Errors during build.
  Error instantiating builder: org.eclipse.jdt.core.javabuilder.
    Plug-in org.eclipse.jdt.core was unable to load class
  Plug-in org.eclipse.jdt.core was unable to load class

I'm already back with an update:
If I try this with Eclipse 3.1.1:

<ECLIPSE_HOME>/eclipse -vm <JAVA_HOME>/jre/bin/java

and JDK v1.5.0_04, I do not have the problems of my previous post.

Comment 6 Andrew Overholt 2005-10-20 15:34:30 UTC

Comment 7 Wolfgang Raith 2005-10-20 18:14:23 UTC

Thank you very much for your effort
