    System: RedHat Fedora 5 system, 32 bit, 1.6ghz, 768meg ram, which is currently running Eclipse 3.1 & ME 4.1GA.
    Problem running the installer, never gets to the point of loading the gui part.

    Preparing to install...

    /tmp/install.dir.5566/Linux/resource/jre/bin/java: error while loading shared libraries: libpthread.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    I then tried it on another Fedora system with the same results.
    Please advise which linux pkg I need to install (via yum) that has the libs your installer needs.
    Thanks.

    Nat,

    This is a known issue with InstallAnywhere on Fedora and a couple other distros. Full details are here: http://www.myeclipseide.com/PNphpBB2+file-viewtopic-t-13157.html

    We apologize for the inconvenience, but the best workaround is simply to use the manual installer zip. It’s quite simple and instructions are included.

    Aye;
    Per the last message in that thread, just for the kicks, I did the following:

     cat MyEclipseEnterpriseWorkbenchInstaller_5_0GA_E3_2.bin | sed 's/export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/g' > install.bin

    I then ran ./install.bin (after flagging it ‘x’ with chmod).
    And hey, it (the gui) comes up! So, the question is, does this mean that I can safely continue with the install, or should I go the manual route anyhow.
    Thanks,
    nat

    Nat,

    You can continue if you haven’t errors anymore – it’s only shared libraries incompatibility between different linux version.

    Best

    Thank you.
    Indeed it ran and installed ok.

    ps. you can close this out and/or use it as a faq. Many folks would rather use the automated install especially if they already downloaded it.

    This method also worked on x86_64 Fedora Core 5. Thanks!

    Hi nat101

    your information helped me a lot in installing MyEclipse in Fedora core 5. I faced the same problems as you get and can solve it soon only because of your valuable information you posted here.

    Thanks a lot

    Um, I am running SUSE 10.1 also, and I tried many of the suggestions found here to get the installer to work, and it just won’t, so I tried downloading the manual install package. Nowhere in it do I find anything that looks like instructions, except some READMEs buried several levels deep. Could you please point out where the primary docs are to be found?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Never mind… after posting that I went up to the forum list and saw the sticky thread. Presumably that will
    tell me what I need to know. Still, I found this thread by googling, as others will, and anyway why the heck
    aren’t instructions included in the zip file?
