my eclipse kept crashing with a java issue :

# An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xa4b242a3, pid=30862, tid=2816686992
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.6.0_03-b05 mixed mode, sharing)
# Problematic frame:
# C  []  gtk_tooltips_set_tip+0x1d3
# An error report file with more information is saved as hs_err_pid30862.log

i tried downgrading to java5 but the problem persisted. (didnt think
that would work because my friend with gentoo has the same java6
version and no issues) it didnt help

i tracked down that file to the libgtk package and did an apt-get
install. i havent been able to replicate the problem since. (was
happening fairly quickly otherwise)

the following versions were on my system at some stage :

fred at rwdlsd:/var/cache/apt/archives$ l libgtk2.0-0_2.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1804338 2007-05-04 03:47 libgtk2.0-0_2.10.12-1_i386.deb

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2184078 2006-06-02 23:47 libgtk2.0-0_2.8.18-1_i386.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1620172 2006-08-16 10:17 libgtk2.0-0_2.8.20-1_i386.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1620026 2006-10-14 21:32 libgtk2.0-0_2.8.20-3_i386.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1620012 2007-01-26 02:17 libgtk2.0-0_2.8.20-5_i386.deb

the current one has this filename :

fred at rwdlsd:~$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/
libgtk2.0-0: /usr/lib/

and the one before had this one :

fred at rwdlsd:~$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/
libgtk2.0-0: /usr/lib/

i can send the java debug report that was generated if required but it
seems like this is the issue.

the original (and different) issue i was seeing yesterday was caused
by having this installed : gcj-4.2-base_4.2.2-2_i386.deb

eclipse does this on startup :

fred at rwdlsd:~$ eclipse
searching for compatible vm...
  testing /usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj...found

but apparently that isnt enough to actually run all of it? most stuff
failed to work using that. it did start, but a cvs import etc wouldnt

after ditching that package it does this :

fred at rwdlsd:~$ eclipse
searching for compatible vm...
  testing /usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj...not found
  testing /usr/lib/kaffe/pthreads...not found
  testing /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun...found

and comes up fine, i even did some coding for the first time in 6
months, but resizing windows and tabs would cause it to die sooner or

seems fine now.

i hope either of those related reports is somehow useful.
