Did find a solution here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6397151/eclipse-helios-cdt-under-ubuntu-11-04-crashes-every-time-i-start-it-a-fatal-er

Added a line

-XX:-UseCompressedOops

to the eclipse.ini and Eclipse is starting well.

2nd issue, calling the Web Browser causes a hard crash. To avoid this I’ve added these to lines to the eclipse.ini

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK=true
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath==/usr/lib/xulrunner-2.0/

Voilà :-)
