I am not sure if this is relevant...but if you are running an AMD64, Eclipse supposedly will not work...

bug report

EDIT:

Something else...it appears that some people are having to run Eclipse from with its own directory...

To do this, you have to


Just running ./eclipse won't work, because it looks in your current location for eclipse, so you must first make sure you are in eclipse's installation directory.

i installed eclipse successfully, but when starting it up it keeps saying it cannot find the JRE..

I installed the J2SDK1.4.2_06 in the /usr directory too, is this yet another path issue?

path, and probably JAVA_HOME variable:

in /etc/profile.
