I won't suggest I know what's going on, but there does seem to be 
something funky with either the startup.jar or FC4's eclipse 
executable, since I get the same error if I specify various 
combinations of the Sun VM with the -vm /path/to/sun/java argument and 
the -cp /path/to/different/startup.jar.  I peeked in the their 
startup.jar, and it *DOES* contain a Main-Class attribute in the 
manifest, so I'm inclined to blame the executable.

I've always installed eclipse from the tarball on eclipse.org along 
with a Sun JDK (in the opposite order; and I set 
PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH to make sure that "java" picks up Sun's 
binary), and it works fine for me.



Quoting Alan Hoyle <alanh at email.unc.edu>:

I have a fresh FC4 install including Eclipse.

When I type "eclipse" at a command line, I get the following behavior:

  $ eclipse
  Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from startup.jar
