Note that the latest stable release of Eclipse is 3.1 which was released
some weeks ago.
What exactly did you install from Eclipse? I simply untarred
to /opt, created a link from /opt/eclipse/jre to the actual jre directory
(starting Eclipse with -vm /pathToTheJavaVM, for example
-vm /opt/jdk1.5.0_01/jre/bin/java, should also work).
With this setup, Eclipse works with no problems.
I also did it similar some time ago with 3.0.1, simply make sure
that you install the Eclipse *SDK*. I would recommend 3.1 though.
