This is probably trivial...but I can't start eclipse. I've followed the directions in the "Trouble getting Eclipse to run?" sticky.

Here's my setup:
MacOSX Lion 10.7.2, Mac Pro
eclipse-java-indigo-SR1-macosx-cocoa installed in /Applications
Lunar eclipse at 4:15am this morning Smile

I've tried several versions, Indigo 64 and 32 bit, Helios 64 and 32 bit. All of them fail with an error like the following:

!SESSION 2011-12-10 08:58:23.434 -----------------------------------------------

Solved... I reinstalled the system from backup, and eclipse now starts correctly. I don't really understand what the issue was, but perhaps it was a generic Carbon error (maybe).
