Hi all,

I would like to run Eclipse on SPARC T2/Linux platform. But there is no binary release of Eclipse for this platform, so I have to build it from source code.

I have downloaded eclipse-sourceBuild-srcIncluded-3.5.2.zip from Eclipse archieves. However, there is no existing support for SPARC/Linux platform within the source code. The build process failed with many errors.

How can I build Eclipse for SPARC/Linux platform (with OpenJDK 1.7 ) ?

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Regards,
Jie

There's no SPARC/Linux listed at
http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/drops/R-3.6.2- 201102101200/index.php,
the closest there is SPARC/GTK2 (Solaris 10). Will that one work?

If no and you really need to include a new platform, you're going to
have to hack and compile C code first. i.e. you'll have to work through
the build errors and re-compile SWT correctly for your platform.
