error when starting the eclipse

I just installed the ecliipse in linux server - redhat 9.0. The eclipse is well running in linux server itself.

But, when i run the eclipse through xmanager(version 1.3.9), i faced the error message. The next message is it.

Xlib: extension "RENDER" missing on display "".

An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
Unexpected Signal : 11 occurred at PC=0x42073E5C

Re: error when starting the eclipse


The problem is due to the color depths eclipse requires. Please do the following steps to solve the problem:

  1. Run Xconfig and change the following options:
    - Color->Default Visual: PseudoColor
    - Option->Backing Store: When Mapped
  2. Run eclipse with the "-data" option as following:
    $ eclipse -data ~/.eclipse.xmgr -vm /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_01/jre/bin/java

    By defining a different workspace folder for Xmanager, you can eliminate possible problems caused by different platforms.
  3. If the problem appears again after some changes in your environment settings, remove platform specific data in:


    And then restart the eclipse.

A motif version of eclipse doesn't have this problem. It only appears in gtk version. We are planning to fix this inconveniences in our future version.

Hope to solve the problem.
