I am actually surprised that only three packages were installed when you did yum install! There are usually around 100 packages that get installed when you do that, assuming the other packages were not installed as part of dependencies to other packages.

Regardless, I don't see some critical packages like eclipse-platform, eclipse-equinox-osgi, eclipse-ecf-core, eclipse-emf-core, etc. Are you sure eclipse is properly installed in your system? At the very least, eclipse-platform is essential!

@Tenali Raman No luck there its already installed apparently sayth@sayth ~$ sudo yum install eclipse-platform [sudo] password for sayth: Loaded plugins: langpacks, refresh-packagekit Package 1:eclipse-platform-4.3.1-11.fc20.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do

solved just reintalled it. Must been a dodgy install sudo yum reinstall eclipse-platform
