I moved my previous Android development environment to a new hard drive, but same computer. I cannot get eclipse to start - no splash screen, just nothing. I am trying to run 32 bit eclipse with 32 bit java on my 64 bit Debian box. I have the ia32 extensions installed.

When I run in debug mode I get:
mark@orca:~/eclipse$ ./eclipse -debug

I am running Linux version 3.1.0-1-amd64 (Debian 3.1.1-1) (gcc version 4.6.2 (Debian 4.6.2-4)) on the server. My eclipse.ini looks like this:
-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.2.0.v20110502.jar
--launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_1.1.100.v20110505
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
--launcher.defaultAction
openFile
-vm
/usr/local/lib/jdk1.6.0_29/bin/java
-vmargs
-Xms40m
-Xmx384m


From the command line I get:
mark@orca:~/eclipse$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_29"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_29-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 20.4-b02, mixed mode)

What am I missing to get eclipse to start?

Thanks,

Mark

If it's in fact a 64-bit host, why would this path be a 32-bit JDK?
Check again, I think.

Because I installed the 32 bit jdk myself. Android needs 32 bit java, not 64 bit java. That is why I run the 32 bit eclipse on a 64 bit machine.

I also checked the md5sum for eclipse, and the download was ok.

Solved:

I ran eclipse from the command line:
java -jar /home/mark/eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.2.0.v20110502.jar

and got these errors:
eclipse.buildId=M20110909-1335
java.version=1.6.0_29
java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=linux, ARCH=x86, WS=gtk, NL=en_US

......

The library libgtk-x11-2.0.so is in the Debian package ia32-libs-gtk, and once I installed that package, eclipse started.
