Eclipse 3.3.* frequently crashed

I have encountered the crash on Ubuntu8.04 (x86 and AMD64),
finally I solved it on Ubuntu8.04 x86 by passing the '-vm' initial paramenter:

Notice, the value isn't the well-known one:

if you set this value instead, it won't work.

Also, I have not tested it on AMD64 platform, currently I use IBM JDK for those platform and worked well.

Good luck.

Ah, interesting, thanks. I'd solved the same problem by installing IBM's 1.6 jdk just for running eclipse.
