Each time I start up Eclipse or click on Search in help I get the following message.
-----------------------------------------------
'Indexing Help...' Has encountered a problem.
Error while Indexing

Details:
Error while indexing
invalid format:
------------------------------------------------

When going ahead and doing the search, I get the following message.

------------------------------------------------
'Local Help' has encountered a problem.
An internal error occured during: "Local Help".

Details:

I am a fairly new Eclipse and linux user but slowly getting to know my way around. I have tried to find answers in the forums and general google but haven't come up with anything.

Where should I start looking for list of files it is trying to index so that I can see which one is of the wrong format? How can I get it to rebuild indexes?

I have found the solution to this problem. It has to do with eclipse preferences.
Here is a how to, for solving the problem. It worked for me.

You will probably need to reinstall... But read the "Beware Drawbacks" section to see what problems you could face.

Regards!

I don't understand your solution here. Did you mean to provide a link to another forum entry?

I am experiencing the same problem.
