    use netbeans instead. i could never see the point of eclipse. not only is it slow, but it has no GUI builder either. netbeans seems to operate just as slowly but at least its got much more functionlality.

    I did a search through the "Eclipse Newcomer" newgroup (the closest I can find to a troubleshooting one), and it seems that a few people had this problem.

    Run Eclipse, then use the "top" command to check memory usage in your programs. See if something is taking up a lot of stuff.

    A problem someone else had was that a Windows environment was virus-scanning every JAR file that he had. So maybe you have some sort of program installed doing something similar?

    I ran Eclipse with very similar specs to yours, so I'm not sure what the issue is.


    (on a completely unrelated note, are you aware that Red Hat 9 is extremely outdated? You may want to look into Fedora Core, which in addition to being more recent, uses the improved 2.6.x kernel line.)
