Eclipse - Too many open files Problem

If your OS is Linux and you are using Eclipse, you might possibly see the following error messages or similar after installing lots of plug-ins in Eclipse. In my case, it usually happened after installing TPTP (I’m using Ubuntu Linux 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope Desktop 64bit by the way).

Installing 64bit Flash Player in Ubuntu Linux

You can ignore this warning now but should get the latest flash player if you are still using the old one having the security issues.

WARNING!!! (updated on the 16th of June in 2010)

A critical security vulnerability in Adobe Flash player was discovered about twelve days ago and Adobe has released a new version which has the problem solved. However, there is no 64bit version of Flash with the security update available yet. Besides, Adobe temporarily removed the 64bit Flash download link so you cannot download it now. Since security is concerned, I had removed the 64bit one and installed the 32bit version with npviewer through the synaptic package manager as it is the new version with the security update. Although this 32 bit one is very unstable and crashes many times, I cannot take the risk of having security problem. Those who have installed the 32bit version then have been experiencing the problem that you cannot click any buttons on the Flash player, open the /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer file and add the following line just before the last line.

export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1

You can find more details from Fix the “can’t click on flash” bug in Ubuntu with 1 command on the OMG! Ubuntu site.
