unable to launch eclipse in Linx (red-hat)


I am using a virtual terminal red-hat and want to install eclipse for c development IDE.
1. I have java 1.6 installed previouse. the java path is configured properly.
2. I downloaded the latest eclipse helios 32bit from eclipse.org
3. I unzip the tar.gz file (eclipse-cpp-helios-linux-gtk.tar.gz)
4. in the eclipse diretory, I try to launch the eclips. but got an error:
./eclipse: /lib/i686/libc.so.6: version 'GLIBC_2.3' not found (required by ./eclipse).

I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib/i686. and no luck either.

Any tips from gurus ? thanks in advance.

What do you mean by a virtual terminal Red Hat. Which Red Hat do you have. Do you mean that you want to run eclipse remotely, using an RHEL server as an application server? Eclipse is a graphical program.

Thanks ischiwal. Vm means a vmware . I am using
a redhat with vmware. I have GUI desktop environment
installed.
It seems eclipse totally not start. I checked 'uname -m' and
it gives i686. And the lib exists

Look for a file in /etc/ named something like /etc/RedHat-release. It is a text file which will tell you the release info. The terminals you get in runlevel 3 are virtual terminals, e.g. VT1. So "Virtual Terminal" RedHat had me thinking it was a headless server.

I'm guessing you have a very old RedHat edition that uses glibc version 2.2.
If you have a pre-RHEL edition such as RH 9.0, then you need to use a more recent RHEL or a recent Linux Distro.

thanks Jschiwal. my redhat is release 7.3. And the /lib/i686/libc.so.6 is a link to libc-2.2.5.s0. u r right. it is below 2.3 which is requred by eclips.

is it possible to patch it ? the VM Linux is only I can find at this moment. All the years I have been doing development under Windows. Now there is a new job which use Linux. So I want to play Linux at home and start use IDE.

thanks again..

Cheers !

Red Hat 7.3 is from 2002 and is not supported anymore for a long time. Install a recent distribution, most likely you will find Eclipse in the repositories. Have a look at Distrowatch for an overview of current distributions.

Yeah, I get what you mean. I once dropped a quarter and it rolled into a dark alley. I couldn't see anything in that alley so I went to look for it where there was more light.
