Fair enough, but changing my name here isn't fixing NetBeans
I've managed to fire up "Solaris Express Developer Edition", prepackaged from Sun, and it comes with NetBeans 6.0 (not 6.0.1).
So at least now I can see what is meant to happen.
It seams to index some .jar files, and it does kinda of 'stick' at 25% too, for a second I thought it had the same problem :lol:.
If I go Help, About, I get this: ==================================== Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.0 (Build 200711261600) Java: 1.6.0_03; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.6.0_03-b05 System: SunOS version 5.11 running on x86; UTF-8; en_US (nb) Userdir: /.netbeans/6.0 ====================================
Even with the VMware Tools installed, it is nowhere near as fast, and VMs chew battery power something bad (even with the power saving configured in VMware Fusion 1.1.1 - doesn't seam to help much).
Plus Solaris isn't the prettiest, or most seamless to use system to code on, esp as a VM.
On the upside 'spaces' works with full screen virtual machines - which is pretty cool.
Still I ain't capabble of figuring this out, I'm good with some things, but this is one of those IT problems that have me stumped.

OK, back in OS X (Mac), so I can copy/paste this in, in case it helps.
NetBeans, About NetBeans - gives the following: =========== Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.0.1 (Build 200801291616) Java: 1.5.0_13; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.5.0_13-119 System: Mac OS X version 10.5.2 running on i386; MacRoman; en_US (nb) Userdir: /Users/ice/.netbeans/6.0 ===========
It's a bit of a bummer, are there any system / env variables I could check and compare ?
Based on the above, and checking the NetBeans config, it appears to be using Java 5 - which is good, because Java 6 is kinda dev-ish.
Could always Time Machine, and Nuke'n'Pave, but that is such a pain if it turns out to be a variable, or some setting in a config file, or something easy for the experienced.
Oh, if I try to make a C++ Project it seams to work, but it does different things to set the project up (vs a Java project), there are visual differences (based on what I've seen of NetBeans 6.0 in the Solaris SXDE VM).
I've also tried installing the full NetBeans 6.0.1 package (Apache Tomcat 6.0.14, Glassfish v2ur1, NetBeans, OpenESB - all in the NetBeans 6.0.1 .dmg file from www.netbeans.org).

My gut feeling is it has something to do with this:
No joke searching for text on that page using Google did not give it as a hit.
I had to download a milestone / nightly build (NetBeans 6.1M1 + Nightly Build) and looks like others running OS X 10.5.2 are affected.
So I'll be stuck with TextEdit (or something else, any recommendations ?) for a few more weeks / months by the looks of it...

^- Is the version that auto-reported the problem for me.
Huzza - I feel more experienced already (their version mgmt looks nice).
