I am having problems getting Eclipse running in a Linux VM. When running Eclipse, I get an error, "SHA-1 not available.". I've looked on Google, and the answers there didn't help, so I am out of ideas.

Below is my system information and the full text of the error output.

I am running Ubuntu Linux (12.04 LTS) in a VirtualBox VM within Windows 7.
Windows 7 is 64-bit, but the Linux System window shows it as "32-bit".

Output from uname -a :
Linux username-VirtualBox 3.8.0-29-generic #42~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Aug 14 15:31:16 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I have installed Java 1.7 (jdk-7u67-linux-i586.rpm) and Eclipse Luna (eclipse-jee-luna-SR1-linux-gtk.tar.gz).

Java is installed at:
/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_67/

Eclipse is installed at:
/usr/local/eclipse/luna

Here are the outputs from running Java from command line with -version flag:
$java -version
java version "1.7.0_67"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_67-b01)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 24.65-b04, mixed mode)

$ javac -version
javac 1.7.0_67

$ javaws -version
Java Web Start splash screen process exiting ...
Bad installation: JAVAWS_HOME not set: No such file or directory

(I'm not sure whether it's important for me to have JAVAWS_HOME set just to run Eclipse.)

I have modified my path (in /etc/profile) to include all the relevant variables:
$ echo $PATH
/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_67/bin:/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_67/jre/bin:/usr/local/apache-maven-3.0.5/bin:/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_67/bin:/usr/java/jdk1.7.0_67/jre/bin:/usr/local/apache-maven-3.0.5/bin:/usr/local/eclipse/luna

Following some instructions I found, I unpacked/installed the files using unpack200:
jre/lib/rt.jar, jsse.rar, and charsets.jar; and lib/tools.jar

I also tried adding the full path to Java in the eclipse.ini using the -vm parameter.


Full system output of running Eclipse:

I've never seen this one. Hopefully someone will come along and help out. My gut feeling is that eclipse is not using the jdk you think it's using, and you may need to specify it in the eclipse.ini file.
