[PC-BSD Testing] PCBSD9 and Eclipse

I downloaded eclipse-3.6.2_1-amd64.pbi and installed as root: 

[root at rong1611-s1] ~/Downloads# pbi_add -v ./eclipse-3.6.2_1-amd64.pbi

 Got this message after install:

Extraction Finished!
Installed: Eclipse-3.6.2_1

Of course I had to run the app as root (launching as user the update locations were not populated). First launch worked. Selected Help --> Check for Updates and installed SDK updates. After the update was complete Eclipse would not restart. Launched Eclipse as root from the command line and got the same error message:

Error: ECLIPSE_HOME is not defined correctly: /usr/pbi/eclipse-amd64/lib/eclipse
       Unable to find eclipse launcher binary

      eclipse worked. I was able to add Ruby and PyDev without a
      problem. However when I performed an update (for eclipse) the
      binary file was removed from the
      /usr/pbi/eclipse-amd64/lib/eclipse directory. When I launch from
      the command line I get this message (of course):

I did some playing with this the other day, and it looks like this
    PBI needed to be installed with root mode, otherwise when you do
    updates, it trashes all kinds of its internal java files. 

Grab one of these and install it as root to test:
