[tor-relays] nyx no connections shown

Nyx was working fine until sometime last week when I had the same issue where the connection page was suddenly blank. It came back a while later but then went blank again. I just checked again and the connections page is still coming up as blank. I'm also on FreeBSD running tor

FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p4

I'm not sure when exactly I noticed the connections page started showing up as blank as I usually only spot check the first page and maybe check the notices.log file.

I'm going to check for updates and then see what happens after.

Thanks Arisbe! This is useful.

> 1)  nyx is way slow to start up.  Sometimes taking 20 seconds to come visible.  The contacts page (page 2) does come up eventually but sometimes takes 10 minutes;

Weird. Nyx should be quicker in that respect than the old arm codebase. Please run 'nyx --debug' and send me the debug log, minus anything you think is sensitive.

Not sure I follow. Is this purely a sorting issue or are inbound/outbound not properly labeled? This is something a screenshot might help with.

> 3)  IP addresses do not have country identification but rather all just have (??);

Hopefully the debug log will help with this too. This should be coming from tor.

> 4)  nyx rejects some of the options in nyxrc

Yup, the nyxrc options are different from the old armrc. They're listed on...

https://nyx.torproject.org/#configuration <https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fnyx.torproject.org%2F%23configuration&data=02%7C01%7C%7Caa6bedc69ca04acb280908d55c76131d%7C4d0a72eeba2646d58bbe6430f01b636a%7C0%7C0%7C636516584561576746&sdata=63h7wDPnpf1ATZWjivaoHM%2Bx0gqx%2F7eQcw3E0GxP7nc%3D&reserved=0>

> 5)  There is no man page for nyx.

Actually, there is.

https://gitweb.torproject.org/nyx.git/tree/nyx.1 <https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgitweb.torproject.org%2Fnyx.git%2Ftree%2Fnyx.1&data=02%7C01%7C%7Caa6bedc69ca04acb280908d55c76131d%7C4d0a72eeba2646d58bbe6430f01b636a%7C0%7C0%7C636516584561576746&sdata=Zn4uJiRKtphBf96feG9jRK4UAadqMvEzGZx8bDLYv6I%3D&reserved=0>

Arm attempted to guess where to install it when you ran 'python setup.py install' but doing so caused problems. Unfortunately the path man pages are located at varies by the platform so I now leave it up to package managers (yum, emerge, etc). Are you on Debian or Ubuntu? That's the most common pain point right now - a package will hopefully be available for those soonish.
