Hi,

I hardly can see the splash-screen, then my Eclipse crashs. I am using the 3.0 Release Linux GTK, tried Java versions 1.4.2_03, 1.4.2_05 and 1.5.0 -- all the same. My stacktrace looks similar to the one posted at:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/102833/vc/Eclipse-startup-Errors-no-clues
but they are not completely the sameslightly differ. According to the tip in these post I start eclipse whith the command
but it doesn't help.

Any clue? Thanks in advance!

hm, no problem any more. Without any clue, I just deleted the eclipse directory and unzipped the zip-file again -- and now it works. A miracle happened!
