Knime 3.1 installation problem

I'm having a problem getting Knime 3.1 running after its installation.  I download the gzipped file and unzip and untar it in my home directory on a Red Hat Linux machine.  I execute knime_3.1.0/knime and I get the mesage below in my terminal.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Thanks, Doug

Which version of RedHat are you using? Eclipse 4 doesn't work on older versions of RHEL6 because of too old libraries.

I am using:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Release 6.5

Kernel Linux 2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64

GNOME 2.28.2

RedHat 6.5 seems to be old to run Eclipse 4.5 (I have seen quite a few reports like this). You need to use a more recent version of RHEL. RHEL 6.7 does work, we use it ourselves.

I upgraded to RHEL 6.7 and Knime 3.1.1 is now running fine.
