|[eclipse-dev] Problem running Eclipse 2.0.2 gtk under SuSE Linux 8.2 (kernel version 2.4.20)|
Perhaps Eclipse 2.0.2, as compiled, does not work with the Linux 2.4.20 kernel?
I saw something about having to use Suns 1.4.1 jvm with the 2.4.20 kernel, instead of Suns 1.3 jvm because it wasnt built to handle the new threading in Linux. I tried running Eclipse with both the Sun 1.4.1 jvm and Blackdowns 1.4.1, yet Eclipse exhibited the exactly the same problem when run from both jvms.
Problem: it appears that any operation which brings up a dialog box indicating that an operation is in progress has that dialog box stay up forever prohibiting any other operations.
I would very much like to use Eclipse with the current version of Linux. Has anyone got Eclipse to run on a Linux 2.4.20 kernel (e.g. Red Hat 9 or SuSE 8.2 both of which were released in the last 10 days)?
