RE: [eclipse-dev] I Do not succeed in running Eclipse on Linux Red Hat 7.1

In general, starting the binary is all you need to do (i.e. "./eclipse"). If it can't find your java vm, it should put up a dialog indicating this.

btw, the newsgroup is the correct place to be asking this kind of question.

Hi thanks.
I tried to run that file but it didnt want to run.  I tried bash and sh.
Red Hat Linux 6 Unleashed (page 841) tells something about how binaries can
be run by using the sysctrl pseudo-files utility.  It seems I need to
register the 'Magic Cookie' of the Eclipse binary by echoing something.  I
am not sure what.
Does anybody has experience with this specific problem ?
Regards, Wout

There is a native Linux binary, called 'eclipse', that will start the
application.  On WIndows, there is an eclipse.exe file that will start it.
