Since updating to OpenSuse Leap 15.4 (running KDE-Plasma 5 as environment)
I do have the issue that I cannot start the eclipse-installer (running KDE Plasma as shell). Existing eclipse installations still do work, although they have numerous problems (starting the market place will crash eclipse as well as subversion plugin subclipse stopped working. Pressing CTRL+Space opens up a context view but immediately after opening the window eclipse will stop with the same strace content.

I tried to run with several jdk version that all result in the same error:
OpenJDK 11
OpenJDK 17
Oracle JDK 17
GraalVM on Java Jdk11
It is also reproducible on several different computers as long as OpenSuse LEap 15.4 is used as the operating system.

Debug and logging does not result in anything meaningful, so I tried to run it with strace. The critical lines at the end are:

--- SIGCHLD {si_signo=SIGCHLD, si_code=CLD_EXITED, si_pid=9799, si_uid=1000, si_status=0, si_utime=0, si_stime=0} ---
clone(child_stack=NULL, flags=CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID|CLONE_CHILD_SETTID|SIGCHLD, child_tidptr=0x7f01fe8d2e50) = 9819

[{WIFSIGNALED(s) && WTERMSIG(s) == SIGABRT && WCOREDUMP(s)}], 0, NULL) = 9819
--- SIGCHLD {si_signo=SIGCHLD, si_code=CLD_KILLED, si_pid=9819, si_uid=1000, si_status=SIGABRT, si_utime=882, si_stime=33} ---
shmctl(294972, IPC_RMID, NULL) = 0
munmap(0x7f01fda53000, 2166888) = 0
getpid() = 9796
getpid() = 9796
exit_group(0) = ?
+++ exited with 0 +++

I have attached the full strace readout.

I have the exact same problem running on Leap 15.3. After a system update every version of eclipse I am trying crashes without a trace. The previous version opens, but as soon as you interact it crashes, the symptoms are identical to bug 462392 - IDE crashes randomly without a trace (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=462392).

The latest installer crashes instantly as the OP states (Leap 15.3+update). AFAIK the installer encapsulates its own JAVA environment and does not dependent on installed JAVA version of the system.

Same problem on my openSuse installations (both "native" and in virtual machines). For me it was working on a VM built in April 2022 with Leap 15.3. After updating this machine this week it's failing. I also have a machine running an old eclipse version (2021-03) on Leap 15.4. This one also crashes when going to market place.

I then set up a fresh VM with Tumbleweed and there eclipse installer and eclipse market place didn't crash immediately as on the other installations. Next step was setting up a fresh Leap 15.4 VM and there the installer immediately crashed.

I see many problems being reported against the platform related to SUSE and new GTK versions that don't work. And lots of "that doesn't work with Wayland".

E.g., https://github.com/eclipse-platform/.github/issues/52

Please read that and see what's suggested to workaround such problems...

rolling back to libwebkit2gtk-4_0-37-2.36.4 resolved the issue.

As prior posters indicated 2.36.5 is broken
