I've been playing with it, and Eclipse works well from remote X (see
attached), but not when run on the local display. Eclipse debugging
seems to want about 135M, so it doesn't fit nicely with X.
That's good to hear. Sounds like you need double Pi ... one for Eclipse
and one for the X server :-)
Is there an F17 remix on the horizon?
Yes -- a group of students here have been hacking away on various pieces
over the last semester. I'm moving their stuff to my research group for
long-term maintenance and we'll push as much of it as appropriate into
Fedora proper -- there will still be a very few bits with ugly license
issues or where we need to build or optimize differently and haven't yet
reconciled with the main Fedora package, but these are rare and should
diminish over time.
