I have not used it on a straight Debian install, but I have used it on
Ubuntu and other distros. The main issue that tends to come up once the
library is installed is that Sun's version of Java only looks for
libraries in its own lib folders and LD_LIBRARY_PATH and most distros seem
to not set LD_LIBRARY_PATH any more. So you either need to symlink the
JavaHL library into one of the JRE lib folders that it searches, or you
need to start Eclipse with a script that sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH before
starting Eclipse.

I have seen that Ubuntu is now installing the library into a /usr/lib/jni
path, but even this path is not included in Sun's Java default search
path. I do not know if other JRE's are different.
