Any help appreciated I searched for install problems..no luck
Ok, I'm really new, Just started Hardy Linux (installed in a dual boot
WUbi configuration)(new to that) Loaded MYsql(new to that) And loaded
Eclipse (don't know much here either nor Java) But that is what I'm trying
to learn....
With the Default install I don't seem to be getting the help system?
I ran the update function and got the c++ help system installed but
nothing else.
Here is a part of the error log from the initial install.
Thanks!
Tom

Here's your problem:

java.fullversion=GNU libgcj 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu6)

You need to install a supported JVM: Sun, IBM, BEA, etc. GCJ will not work.

Nick,
Thank you for the quick reply,
I think I got the right Java installed now but my config is still way
messed up, no help files for java...through eclipse.

just to be on the safe side i de-installed and re installed Eclipse after
"fixing" the Java install.. still no help files.. and when I try to do
most sorts of updates through updates in eclipse i get configuration
errors...
error file as follows,

Well, I haven't stepped up to the latest Ubuntu yet (I use Antix 7 on
one machine and MEPIS 6 on my other), but I have no problems running
Eclipse.

Of course I don't use the .deb packages, I just download the latest SDK
..tar.gz from Eclipse.org [1] and unpack that. (If you installed a .deb
that does not include doc or source, you need to grab that package
too... or get the full SDK instead, which includes runtime, source, and
doc for JDT, PDE, CVS, etc.) Chances are there are multiple packages for
your distro in the same way that you can install .debs for Java SDK,
runtime, sources, or doc (or a combination).

[1] http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/

I generally use a .desktop shortcut which runs something like this:

/home/nickb/eclipse/eclipse34/eclipse -showLocation -vm
/opt/sun-java2-6.0/bin/java -data /home/nickb/eclipse/workspace2 -clean
-vmargs -Xms128M -Xmx256M -XX:PermSize=128M -XX:MaxPermSize=256M

Oh, and FYI, there's also http://help.eclipse.org/stable/ (Eclipse 3.4)
and http://help.eclipse.org/help33/ (Eclipse 3.3) if you want the same
information online.

Well... accurate but over my head,, I used the so called distro's in the
hardy library, I did get some errors... but I'm such a newbie at Linux I
don't know where to go from here.. I'm about to just reinstall on
Windows.... What I was hoping to avoid...

So the file not found messages I posted cannot help to find and straighten
out the install? Not that I know how to do this in Linux..

I would avoid the Eclipse packages from the Hardy repositories. You can
download Eclipse for the eclipse.org web site as a single tar file.
Installation requires untaring the file and running the eclipse executable.

The Hardy packages are maintained by Ubuntu developers. If you have
problems with them, you will probably have to post on the Ubuntu forums.

I know what you describe is a basic skill for Linux, but I's so new at it
(linux).. exactly how do I do it, and can I just do it over what I've done?
Hey, I said I was new and I meant it!
