I have been using Eclipse for a while and it was working well until I upgraded to Karmic Koala. I have uninstalled clean eclipse, sun-java; cleaned out configuration files and reinstalled them without success.
If I have posted this in the wrong forum or not provided enough info that would be helpful to know too.
In the latest round, there have been several, I uninstalled clean the following: eclipse-jdt, eclipse-platform, eclipse-platform-data, eclipse-plugin-cvs and eclipse-rcp.
Though I noticed that when I went to reinstall it, it did not download eclipse it just installed. Is there a way to tell the Koala to clear it's cache of eclipse and download a fresh copy? I may be grasping but I'm assuming that corruption is a possibility. Also in the log file I saw references to equinox even though I was upgraded to Galileo when I upgraded to Karmic Koala. Well at least the splash screen for eclipse says Galileo and the reinstalled version is listed as 3.5.1+repack~1-0ubuntu3 in synaptic.
After install I deleted my old ~/workspace directory and used a new ~/dev/workspace directory. Then I ran eclipse and created a new "Test" project and went to import a MyTest.java I saved from a preveous iteration. After choosing to import the file I received the following on the terminal window I ran eclipse from:
Please see attached hs_err_pid17656.log.

I would appreciate a clue as I'm dead in the water until I solve this.
