Install Eclipse Galileo/Ganymede on Fedora 11

Step 1:

Before installing Eclipse IDE,make sure you installed JDK/JRE.If you have not installed it,follow the instruction provided in the below link,

link

step 2:

Download the Eclipse IDE from eclipse download site,as tar.gz file.

step 3:

After the tar.gz file is downloaded,open the terminal and type

#tar xzvf filename.tar.gz

This will extract the file in the parent directory

step 4:

Move to eclipse folder,

#cd ~/eclipse

Open the eclipse.ini file,

#gedit eclipse.ini

The file will look something like this,

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.201.R35x_v20090715.jar
–launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_1.0.200.v20090520
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.jee.product
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
–launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m

Now add the following lines before the ‘-vmargs’,

-vm
/[HOME-DIRECTORY]/jdk1.6.0_xx/bin/java

[ make sure you follow the same pattern as above,the path should be an absolute one starting from parent directory to the java,and replace ‘xx’ by the version you are using. ]

After adding the line,the file will look something like this,

-startup
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.201.R35x_v20090715.jar
–launcher.library
plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.gtk.linux.x86_1.0.200.v20090520
-product
org.eclipse.epp.package.jee.product
-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
–launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256m
-vm
/opt/jdk1.6.0_16/bin/java
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
-XX:MaxPermSize=256m
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m

Now save the file and close it.

Step 5:

Now open the terminal and navigate to eclipse folder and type,

#./eclipse

Now your eclipse is ready.
