I just downloaded the Eclipse IDE installer for java. I am on a linux box. But the script that's supposed to install the IDE is giving me an error. Does anyone know what's wrong it?

bash-2.05$ ./eclipse
./eclipse: relocation error: /lusr/gnome2/lib/libpangoxft-1.0.so.0:undefined symbol:FT_Load_Glyph

Why should it be trying to relocate to genome directory???

Take it easy, it's not trying to relocate to anywhere.  8-)
I don't have a linux box right now, but I'm guessing you have an out of date freetype installation.
You can find the source tar ball for freetype2 here if you want to build it yourself:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=3157
Or try google some RPM for your linux distro.
HTH.

I had the wrong version of installer file for my linux box. I needed motif instead of gtk. Installed the motif version and it's solved. :-)

Cool.  This seems to go with some comments on linux I just ran into somewhere else about 20 min. ago - "working in linux is like a detective game."  8-)

Right. That will give you back the points.

(Though then people won't benefit from your insight!!)

I don't think giving points to myself is allowed (hey then I would be asking questions I already know and steal points :-) ).

Now where's the delete button? Don't seem to find it.

I don't know where that delete is. Maybe you have to look at your profile. There's a community topic where such questions can be answered . . .
