Slackware 14.1 64 - Eclipse 4.3 64 refuses to start


Hello,

i have installed the eclipse package from slackbuilds.org - http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14...pment/eclipse/ . i have java installed. Other applications requiring java (such as openoffice/libreoffice) are working. Here are some details.
When i start Eclipse from KDE i get the error:
Code:
The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its 
companion shared library.
When i start it from the command line, i get:
Code:
bash-4.2$ eclipse
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130521-0416: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
installed java version:
Code:
bash-4.2$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)
Eclipse executable:
Code:
bash-4.2$ which eclipse
/usr/bin/eclipse
eclipse.ini file is located under /opt/eclipse/eclipse.ini. Its contents is as follows:
Code:
-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20130327-1440.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130521-0416
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.appendVmargs
-vmargs
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m
$JAVA_HOME
Code:
bash-4.2$ echo $JAVA_HOME
/usr/lib64/java
I think it used to work before. Last thing i was struggling to get running was calibre.

Any idea what could have broken the Eclipse installation?

Thank you!

After you installed JDK did you reboot. you will need to so all the libraries get loaded correct.
if so wonder why that plugin is not there.

I figure you already did this right.
Quote:
Upgrading: if you find an error during Eclipse initialization, check
this two files:

/opt/eclipse/configuration/config.ini
/opt/eclipse/eclipse.ini

If you haven't done modifications in those files, overwrite them with
config.ini.new and eclipse.ini.new.

I had forgotten to install jdk

Hello,

as it seems i had forgotten to install jdk but i thought Eclipse could run only with jre. Anyway i did the following- i installed the openjdk slackbuild that is available from Alien Bob - http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slac...dk/pkg64/14.1/

After that installation i rebooted. I am still getting the same errors when trying to start eclipse from command line or KDE. Here are some details again:

/opt/eclipse/configuration/config.ini
Code:
#This configuration file was written by: org.eclipse.equinox.internal.frameworkadmin.equinox.EquinoxFwConfigFileParser
#Wed Jun 05 22:18:38 EDT 2013

Code:

--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.appendVmargs

i do not know if i need to make any changes in those two files. Further details:
Code:
bash-4.2$ which java
/usr/lib64/java/bin/java
Code:
bash-4.2$ echo $JAVA_HOME
/usr/lib64/java
Code:
bash-4.2$ java -version

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.6) (Slackware)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode)

A file is missing - org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130521-0416

I noticed that some file is missing - there is no file

Code:
org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130521-0416
under
Code:
/opt/eclipse/plugins
but that file is configured in /opt/eclipse/eclipse.ini

Any idea how to fix that?

Sart Eclipse as root

Trying to start Eclipse as a root user gives some more information:

Code:
# eclipse 
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130521-0416: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
No protocol specified
Eclipse: Cannot open display: 
Eclipse:
The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its 
companion shared library.
But howcome could this file be missing?

Log contents

Hello,

i figured out that there is something wrong in the eclipse.ini file:
it was configured:
Code:
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130521-0416
but i did not have such file. i had the following instead:
Code:
/opt/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130807-1835
So i replaced the originally configured file with the one i had. Now my /opt/eclipse/eclipse.ini looks as this:
Code:
-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20130327-1440.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_64_1.1.200.v20130807-1835
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
--launcher.appendVmargs
-vmargs
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m
i rebooted the machine after i had made the changes. Now when i try to start eclipse, it gives an error that i should look in the log. Here is the log:

Code:
/home/user/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.3.0_1473617060_linux_gtk_x86_64/configuration

Hello Drakeo,
as far as i can understand from your post, you have installed openjdk from Alien Bob's repository and then you have installed Eclipse package from slackbuilds.org? Is that right?

Thanks!

Eclipse 4.3 64 reinstalled - same problem

Hello,
here is what i did. I removed Eclipse and installed it again. I already had installed openjdk from Alien Bob's repository. I am using the eclipse.ini file that Drakeo has provided. i just replaced my old one with the one he had provided. Now i am getting this error when starting eclipse:
Code:

Solution found

Hello,
i searched a little bit in Internet. I found this post useful. i just had to replace the proper files in /opt/eclipse/configuration/config.ini. i just set it to match the files that i have under the plugins directory.
original config.ini:
Code:
#This configuration file was written by: org.eclipse.equinox.internal.frameworkadmin.equinox.EquinoxFwConfigFileParser
#Wed Jun 05 22:18:38 EDT 2013
org.eclipse.update.reconcile=false
eclipse.p2.profile=SDKProfile
osgi.instance.area.default=@user.home/workspace
osgi.framework=file\:plugins/org.eclipse.osgi_3.9.0.v20130529-1710.jar
equinox.use.ds=true
eclipse.buildId=4.3.0.I20130605-2000
osgi.bundles=reference\:file\:org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator_1.0.400.v20130327-2119.jar@1\:start
org.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.useCairo=true
org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator.configUrl=file\:org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator/bundles.info
eclipse.product=org.eclipse.sdk.ide
osgi.splashPath=platform\:/base/plugins/org.eclipse.platform
osgi.framework.extensions=
eclipse.p2.data.area=@config.dir/../p2
eclipse.application=org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench
osgi.bundles.defaultStartLevel=4
modified config.ini
Code:
#This configuration file was written by: org.eclipse.equinox.internal.frameworkadmin.equinox.EquinoxFwConfigFileParser
#Wed Jun 05 22:18:38 EDT 2013
org.eclipse.update.reconcile=false
eclipse.p2.profile=SDKProfile
osgi.instance.area.default=@user.home/workspace
osgi.framework=file\:plugins/org.eclipse.osgi_3.9.1.v20130814-1242.jar
equinox.use.ds=true
eclipse.buildId=4.3.0.I20130605-2000
osgi.bundles=reference\:file\:org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator_1.0.400.v20130327-2119.jar@1\:start
org.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.useCairo=true
org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator.configUrl=file\:org.eclipse.equinox.simpleconfigurator/bundles.info
eclipse.product=org.eclipse.sdk.ide
osgi.splashPath=platform\:/base/plugins/org.eclipse.platform
osgi.framework.extensions=
eclipse.p2.data.area=@config.dir/../p2
eclipse.application=org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench
osgi.bundles.defaultStartLevel=4
the only row i had to update was:
Code:
osgi.framework=file\:plugins/org.eclipse.osgi_3.9.1.v20130814-1242.jar
this is version specific.
thank you, marking this thread as solved.
