I'm not sure if I set this up properly. I want to start Eclipse CDT on my Ubuntu 8.04 install using X11 through VNC.
When I try to run eclipse through vnc viewer command line using ./eclipse it hangs for a few seconds then fails. No error message is output on the command line.
Is there a startup error log or some place I can look to find out what's happening? Or am I doing this wrong?
Ok I've verified that the problem is eclipse.
Is there some kind of version clash here?
desktop: ubuntu desktop 8.04 lts kernel: 2.6.24-22-generic CDT 7.0.2 for Eclipse Helios jre1.6.0_24
When I do
./eclipse it just hangs for a few seconds and I get no error at all. I also don't know if there is a log file that would store startup errors. Is anyone familiar with this kind of problem?
My eclipse.ini is the default file with the -vm argument added,
-startup plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.1.1.R36x_v20101122_1400.jar --launcher.library plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_1.1.2.R36x_v20101019_1345 -product org.eclipse.epp.package.cpp.product --launcher.defaultAction openFile -showsplash org.eclipse.platform --launcher.XXMaxPermSize 256m --launcher.defaultAction openFile -vm /home/shwick/ghostDev/java/jre1.6.0_24/bin/java -vmargs -Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5 -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Xms40m -Xmx384m
I booted into my ubuntu 10 partition on my windows machine, did the exact same thing installing eclipse 3.6 helios with jre 1.6 and eclipse ran fine.
Right now I need to know how to get a description of the error that is occurring even though it is not output to the command line or ubuntu's system log /var/log/messages.
./eclipse just hangs and then returns to the command line
