Eclipse hangs

March 11 2013 : posted under eclipse note to self

This worked for me today - saving it here so I can find it again

http://off-topic.biz/en/eclipse-hangs-at-startup-showing-only-the-splash-screen/

cd .metadata/.plugins

mv org.eclipse.core.resources org.eclipse.core.resources.bak

Start eclipse. (It should show an error message or an empty workspace because no project is found.)

Close all open editors tabs.

Exit eclipse.

rm -rf org.eclipse.core.resources (Delete the newly created directory.)

mv org.eclipse.core.resources.bak/ org.eclipse.core.resources (Restore the original directory.)

Start eclipse and start working. :-)
