Installing eclipse on FreeBSD 7
I have installed FreeBSD 7. I used portsnap to fetch extract and update all the ports, then did a pkgdb -F. After resolving all the dependencies, I installed gnome2, diablo jdk from the freebsd foundation http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/ and then tried to install eclipse from ports (make install clean) which completed succesfuly. When I try to start up eclipse I am getting a pop up window with this message:
JVM terminated. Exit code=1
I found out that this might be a Java heap problem, so I modified the eclipse.ini file. The instructions were on this page:
under the heading:
How to set java heap size in Eclipse?
But this did not change the out come.
Any help or suggestions on how to correct this.
Actually, that might be an Eclipse issue. Eclipse has issues with certain versions of Java. I know it works fine with jdk16 on FreeBSD, but I use NetBeans because I like it better. Your best bet is to try with jdk16. By the way, I had a similar error on Gentoo Linux three or four months ago, and I couldn't fix it. The Eclipse irc folks just said to try different versions of jdk, which didn't help either.
