Eclipse is part of openSUSE. Just install and run from start menu.
Im using SUSE 11.0. Is it comes with DVD Installation?
Right now i have downloaded Eclipse Ganymede and tried but never worked.
hi it took me nearly 2 hours to figure out how to set eclipse.
at the moment im using openSuse 11.1 quite a nice job but not when it comes to install new programs
in my case i had not install jre and jdk wich I did.
For jre i have 1.6.0_16 i took it in the tarball form and executed:
chmod a+x jdk-6u16-linux-i586-rpm.bin (to extract thefile)and
./jdk-6u16-linux-i586-rpm.bin (to execute).
the same thing i did for JDK after that i pinpointed to eclipse where the virtual machine is which in my case it was in:
after that i went to the directory where extracted Ganymede and entered this command :
./eclipse -vm /usr/java/jre1.6.0_16/bin/java
after that i can open eclipse just by typing “./eclipse”
Note: to open eclipse i have to be into the extracted folder.
