Hello, I use Eclipse constantly for several tasks: web programming, Ruby programming, Latex, etc, though I don't consider myself an expert user. Today it stopped working, about one minute after starting up it completely halts, no response at all to mouse or keyboard. I get no error messages, exceptions or anything the like.

How can I provide feedback on this? Any logs I can post? I don't find any of that in the Eclipse directory.

Thank you,

Luís

This sounds like one of defective Java VM versions to me (had same problem). Make eclipse use something else. Make it default or make eclipse use that (see eclipse.ini).

(Sun, aargh, Oracle Java from 1.6.25 on works fine for me. )

Create a stack trace (see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/How_to_report_a_deadlock) and then
file a bug report (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi). File it
against Platform UI if you don't know which component causes the deadlock.

Thank you for the replies.

Suspecting this could be an issue with some of the projects I started Eclipse from the command line into an empty workspace. This way Eclipse didn't freeze. Into this new workspace I checkout all the projects I was working on, and presently everything seems to be working fine.

The old workspace seems to have been corrupted, how, I have no idea.
