After fedup from 18 to 20, Eeclipse will not start. The JVM crashes and reports a problme outside the JVM in Problematic frame: C [] gtk_widget_set_tooltip_text+0x1e.

No problems in 18. How can this be fixed?

Have you installed the Google Talk plugin? Because there is a known issue between Eclipse and this plugin.

No, Google talk plugin was not installed. I searched for it just to be sure,and it is not on the machine. The only thing that changes was the upgrade from 18 to 20!

Could this be a video driver issue? The install is on a Lenovo T520 and I had issues with thvideo drivers intially - possible that upgrade wiped out those fixes.

BTW, the Eclipse version is 3.7.

Try the steps outlined here and clean up your system:

It could be some remnant files from the F18 installation. Also try running eclipse from the terminal and see what errors it gives. Please edit and update your question with whatever information you can provide.

there have been threads in other places that say (strangely enough) that eclipse crashes are caused by the google-talk plugin. empirically, it is true since removing the plug in stopped my own eclipse crashes.
