Hi All,

I initially went to the nyx website to find the right forum to ask 
questions. I understood this is the one :-), if not apologies.

So I'm running two relays, one is running on CentOS7, the other Debian 
Stretch. On both I have nyx (2.0.4) installed. The "Debian" one is 
missing the CPU, Exit policy etc info. It's not tor version specific, as 
I recently upgraded the tor software on the nodes regularly.

So on the CentOS node I see this on the top at the right;
cpu: 61.3% tor, 5.0% nyx   mem: 371 MB (12.4%) pid: 1279   uptime: 
fingerprint: 328E54981C6DDD7D89B89E418724A4A7881E3192
exit policy: reject *:*

On the Debian node it's simply not printing any of these three lines. I 
can't find in the (debug) logging whether an utility or library is 
It's nothing major, but annoying. Especially with the new alpha releases 
it's nice to keep an eye out on mem/cpu.

Does anyone have an idea what the trick is to get it to work on debian?
