    Question eclipse 3.8 hangs on start

    After upgrading to 13.04, my eclipse 3.8 hangs while showing the startup splash (it hangs at "starting workbench").

    I'm using openjdk 7 and I have Android SDK installed.

    I get no printouts in the console, nor does starting eclipse with --cleanup do any difference.

    Any ideas?

    I attached with strace to the java process that took 100% CPU.

    Basically it does this over and over again:
    [pid 28738] poll([{fd=17, events=POLLIN}, {fd=16, events=POLLIN}, {fd=111, events=POLLIN}], 3, 0) = 0 (Timeout)
    [pid 28738] recvfrom(16, 0x7f27f827a784, 4096, 0, 0, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)
    [pid 28738] poll([{fd=17, events=POLLIN}, {fd=16, events=POLLIN}, {fd=111, events=POLLIN}], 3, 0) = 0 (Timeout)
    [pid 28738] recvfrom(16, 0x7f27f827a784, 4096, 0, 0, 0) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily unavailable)

    Any solution to this? I have the same problem, but no Android SDK.

    I had to uninstall the Ubuntu package and install Eclipse from the Eclipse website...

    I wound up removing my $HOME/.eclipse/.metadata/ directory and that seemed to solve it, at the cost of losing my projects and other setup.

    Thanks
