Description Lukas Schneiderbauer 2012-08-08 11:19:59 UTC
After starting eclipse-sdk-bin the splashscreen appears and it asks about the default workspace path. Confirming the dialog results in a crash.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. add java-overlay
1. emerge dev-util/eclipse-sdk-bin-4.2.0
2. start 'eclipse-sdk-bin'
3. confirm the 'set-default-workspace-path'-dialog
Actual Results:  
eclipse crashes with an error message:

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007f22790878d0, pid=2884, tid=139786228291328

Comment 2 Lukas Schneiderbauer 2012-08-08 12:43:30 UTC
While playing a little longer I found out that the crash occurs only when selecting a folder as workspace-path which _already exists_ but has no .metadata folder in it.
Choosing a 'new' unexistent path leads to a correct startup where the .metadata folder is created within the new workspace folder which apparently leads to a correct startup the next start-attempt (choosing the same workspace folder again).
Comment 3 Ian Whyman (thev00d00) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-08-26 15:50:14 UTC

I was experiencing this issue, but cant seem to reproduce it now.

What I would recommend is (re)moving your ~/.eclipse or ~/.org.eclipse.* folder if you have one from an older install, it seemed to help here at least.
Comment 4 Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2014-05-10 21:55:00 UTC
I can reproduce this reliably with 3.7.1 as well as 4.2.1:

1.: open Find/Replace dialog in editor
2.: find something
3.: then press any button or [Esc]
4.: watch eclipse insta-close


Basically, it seems to happen after a gtk+-2 update. Most people seem to be affected when using oxygen-gtk, such as me, but it was also reported using the Raleigh theme.

Workaround without compromising the rest of your gtk looks, start it like that:

GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Default/gtk-2.0/gtkrc eclipse-3.7

And since it is really an oxygen-gtk bug, here the real upstream bug:
Comment 7 William L. Thomson Jr. 2017-04-01 17:54:28 UTC
This should be closed, eclipse has its own overlay eclipse-overlay. It is no longer maintained in java-overlay.
Comment 8 Florian Schmaus gentoo-dev 2022-07-23 10:36:30 UTC
