comment Finding multiple linearly independent eigenvalues for a single eigenvalues
Ok, I think I get it. So you just use any two values for $ x_2, x_3 $ that produces something easy to work with, and make sure they are linearly independent. Would $ x_2 = 2, x_3 = 1 $ therefore $ e_1 $ = (-2, 2, 1) and $ x_2 = 0, x_3 = 1 $ therefore $ e_2 $ = (-1, 0, 1) be a valid answer? I've had the same problem in another question, so using this would (1,1,0) and (0,1,0) be ok for {{1,1/2,-1/2},{1/2,1,1/2},{-1/2,1/2,1}}?
