i am using 64-bit Ubuntu 13.10 and I have Eclipse (exactly adt-bundle-linux-x86_64-20131030) with SDK, I am trying to learn how to make my own Android application but Eclipse is closing automatically and randomly with no errors or warning. I run it in terminal and then it shows me some issues.

This is the terminal output:

 A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
