Status of Eddie - Flatpak on Linux

Recommended Posts

Github Flatpak

i love and trust your service. only the debian/ubuntu version of eddie is horrible. the "main" process consumes too much ram. 

when i read your plan for linux, i miss something important. different versions for different linux systems are not future-oriented at all. i think it would be better to concentrate on flatpaks and secondarily on snaps as well. we need a cross-platform application. without having to tinker with keys, dependencies, packages, x - repos für x - different systems. it's possible. it's 2019.

plz & thx.

There is only one current version for all major desktop platforms: 2.17.2. It's cross-platform because it looks and feels the same on all three, with slightly different ways to do some things. Just how much RAM does it consume and on which system with which specifications?
Maybe it's your Mono dependency? What's your version? I'm using the official Mono releases and can't complain about too much RAM usage if I happen to use it.

Supporting as many installation methods as possible is truly a noble and time-consuming task and lets everyone use what one likes. So far I agree with you, and official flatpaks/AppImages/snaps are really considerable. But since most of these run in a sandbox I'm not sure OpenVPN in a flatpak for example would tunnel the whole NIC traffic through it. Others might have a better look on it and can tell more.
Therefore, replacing package manager versions with these is not good. They're too mighty, seeing as flatpak/snap must first be installed via said package managers. :D

And how are flatpaks going to solve your RAM usage problem in the first paragraph? It would only consume more. RAM shouldn't be a real problem. It's 2019.

There's something official for all package manager formats, be it DEB, RPM, pacman or else. Just be grateful they're packed and maintained by AirVPN themselves. :)

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
