Eclipse Start-Up Crash on Mac OS X Lion

Today, I was working from my parent’s home in Arkansas where we don’t have broadband, so my Mac was offline. I tried to start Eclipse and it just popped a dialog mentioning a log file with no other message.

After a bit of searching the errors in the log, Stack Overflow came to the rescue.

just add an alias for localhost to the network interface:

sudo ifconfig en0 alias

That’s all you have to do, really.
