    Exclamation Eclipse Europa on SuSE 11

    This might not be specific to SuSE 11, might be specific only to this release of Eclipse which was installed from the SuSE 11 regular repository.

    Googling, I only found many references to this error on Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but the fix recommended for those distros does not work on SuSE 11.

    Problem
    Installed Eclipse with Sun JDK 1.5.06.
    When Eclipse is launched, the following error is displayed

    Could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features.
    Attempted Solution which doesn't work
    Debian solution has been to manually create the folder

    $HOME/.mozilla/eclipse

    I have also created the folder with the "Eclipse" foldername capitalized.

    Any thoughts and recommendations appreciated.

    TIA.

    I use the last release - Ganymede - from tarball downloaded on Eclipse.org. It works fine. I have only strange artefacts in the bottom panel of KDE4.

    Smile Re: Eclipse Europa on SuSE 11 - RESOLUTION

    I have installed Eclipse Ganymede and can report that at least initially the application runs (I haven't actually tried to do anything in Eclipse yet)

    For the newbie, here is some info regarding "installing" Eclipse from a tarball...

    I installed and configured the preferred JDK before installing Eclipse, that involves not only downloading and installing (docs say Sun and maybe IBM version preferred over Open version), then configuring the JAVA_HOME and PATH environmentals.

    Eclipse doesn't "install" -- You just extract the tarball to a chosen location and from there it will always run.

    Initially I installed and ran as Root, but re-located the files to a location recommended by some docs I found on the Web in a subfolder of the /opts/ directory. From there, Eclipse should be accessible for any User.

    The first time I ran Eclipse with a regular User account (from BASH window), the following error displayed

    java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: requested 32756 bytes for ChunkPool::allocate.
    Out of swap space?
    The solution to this problem is to run the eclipse executable again with the -vmargs switch only once. After that, simply executing the eclipse executable is needed without the switch.

    Ex.
    Code:
    /opt/Eclipse/eclipse -vmargs
    Hope there aren't additional errors to be found and this works for everyone else as well!

    How are you running it? I click on the eclipse file and I get the "Open with..." dialog box. (It's not just Eclipse, it's every executable)
    I'm running KDE x64.

    Dunno. Are your running 32-bit or 64-bit Eclipse?

    Hrm the Eclipse from the "standard" 11.0 oss/non-oss repository install worked out of the box for me.

    However, I am using 1.6.0_06 as my Java, as 1.5 is bloody old

    I have a similar problem. I unzipped the tarball (tried this for Europa, Ganymede, Java, JEE and C++ packages) and double-clicked on the eclipse icon and nothing happened and this is as myself or as root, in my folder or in /opt with execute perms.

    Even the command line does nothing. When I type in "eclipse" I just get "command not found".

    Is there a setting somewhere to do with running exes or am I missing something here?

    I like Eclipse but if I can't run the thing then it's NetBeans for me.
