Hallo :),

I'm a Eclipse Newbie. My resources are
- OS = debian 10
- Eclipse Version: 2020-06 (4.16.0) | Build id: 20200615-1200
- Java
openjdk version "11.0.8" 2020-07-14
OpenJDK Runtime Environment AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.8+10)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.8+10, mixed mode)

My problem:
Eclipse crashes down again and again. A "safe" reason to do so is to go on Help -> Welcome. The following window is shown than (please see the attached .png).

What can I do to use Eclipse like it should be?

TIA
Michael

Are there any clues in the <workspace>/.metadata/.log of what might have gone wrong before the process terminated?

Note that you can delete this file and a new fresh one will be created. You can also type "Error Log" after clicking the search (magnifying class icon) in the upper right of the Window to bring up the Error Log view which shows you the contents of this file and there is a clear button (red x) on the view bar to empty the .log.

Without the logged details, it's hard to figure out what might have go wrong.

I assume it's not a JVM crash; if it is, the details of that would of course be useful.

Hello Mr. Marks,

thank you for your reply :)!
To this post I have attached the actual Error log. Perhaps you can read there something useful in it ;).

TIA,
best regards,
Michael

It looks a little like the log is truncated... The exceptions appear to be from some file that perhaps you deleted but there is still an open editor for it.

If it's the JVM that's crashing, the crash log would be useful and likely provides the only clues...

You say this consistently "crashes" by going to Help -> Welcome?

Yes, that's right. The crash can be replicated, when clicking on `Help -> Welcome`. I've been searching for other logfiles but couldn't find some, even not with the `find`command.
