11 EDK - SDK does not launch from my Linux workstation

Description

Keywords: RHEL, Red, Hat, 5, 4, Enterprise, SUSE, Firefox, Mozilla, Eclipse, splash, screen

When I attempt to launch SDK from my Linux work station, I receive Java errors similar to the following:

"Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.2 (Tikanga)

userm@linux-gs8(27) % /home/userm/work/Xilinx/lin/SDK/java/lin/jre/bin/java:
symbol lookup error: /home/userm/work/Xilinx/lin/SDK/eclipse/bin/lin/
configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/bundles/68/1/.cp/libswt-mozilla-gtk-3139.so:
undefined symbol: _ZN4nsID5ParseEPKc"

Or, something similar to:

!ENTRY org.eclipse.ui.workbench 4 0 2008-08-10 16:49:47.20
!MESSAGE Widget disposed too early!
!STACK 0

Solution

The Eclipse/CDT version that SDK uses depends on XPCOM libraries from firefox 2.* or mozilla-seamonkey 1.*. These libraries are missing in RedHat EL 5.2 installation or from a Firefox 3.x installation.

To use SDK on this installation, perform the following:

1. Download and install the firefox 2.* or mozilla-seamonkey 1.* version.
2. Set the ENV variable MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME to your Firefox or Mozilla installation location (e.g., setenv MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME /usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.8), or make the following change GRE_PATH=/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.8 in the /etc/gre.d/gre.conf file.

Firefox 2.0 can be found at:
