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 -----------------------------------------------
java.vendor=Apple Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=macosx, ARCH=x86, WS=cocoa, NL=en_US
Framework arguments: -showlocation org.eclipse.platform -keyring /Users/jyh-local/.eclipse_keyring -showlocation
Command-line arguments: -os macosx -ws cocoa -arch x86 -showlocation org.eclipse.platform -keyring /Users/jyh-local/.eclipse_keyring -showlocation

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).
