Sorry I need to remove your instructions, because they are based on tests, not valid anymore and create only confusion.
The only and right method is by using Eddie Preferences checkbox. If it doesn't work, it will be fixed when we understand the issue, please have patience.
Fair enough.  Thanks for all the work you're putting into this.

update to 2.18.7 and it is not solved with me.

strange that you don't have it, have already tried Tumbleweed and a fresh 15.1 installation, nothing helps?
maybe it has with the video driver, through the processor I have 4x Intel Core i3-4370
still have a Tumbleweed run via virtualbox on my windows computer, will look there again.
edit:okay, tested on windows / virtualbox / tumbleweed, same problem

note: it all started after the eddie 2.13.6 version, no problem with eddie before that.

just go through a terminal with Hummingbird for now :)

 
I have done a clean installation openSUSE 15.1, and now no problems with Eddie the 2nd day. However, if Eddie is active on your screen, my start menu does not work, it does minimize!
So Eddie does something strange.
Isn't it strange that things are going better now, have clean installations been done before?

3 times today:

Hummingbird > ERROR: KEV_NEGOTIATE_ERROR
Hummingbird > ERROR: HANDSHAKE_TIMEOUT
Hummingbird > ERROR: CC_ERROR

Issues confirmed, thx, will be fixed in the next release.
You can write to us the output of 

uname -m
on raspbian buster? thx.

p.s. if you don't have the UI, why you use "eddie-ui -cli" and not direct "eddie-cli" package? Just curiosity, it's equivalent (or need to be, bugs apart)

Hi, some months and two versions have been released since you told me the problem would be solved in the next realease and I'm always stucked with the same problem. 
Is there a particular reason ? Can I expect a resolution ?

You are right, we know the cause. No manual intervention will be required in future, this will be fixed before the next release. Thx.


Just replying to a semi random AirVPN Team post here to remind you that you all are on the right side of History.

This is important work you are doing, and it seems that you are working hard at it.

Respect.

I'm getting issues on 2.18.6 while running


eddie-ui -cli -connect
basically the whole process stops at

Collect information about AirVPN completed
what's funny, if I run it w/o the -connect parameter and then trigger it with n, it will go ahead and connect to a server. I'm pretty sure it was fine in 2.18.5 beta and before.
Kali Rollin'.

So the new version doesn't change anything and the automatic connection is still stuck at the same place. As someone else mentioned adding
--pinger.enabled=False
will also help the case.
It's Kali Rollin' and it's vpn over tor (if it changes anything...).

I found an annoying bug in v.2.18.7

When the checkbox 'don't ask elevation every run' is checked it will become unchecked when you save your settings.
I have the windows service installed an it worked fine in 2.18.5. So i switched back to the older version.

Can this be fixed?

Previous discussion in this thread indicates there is a known 2.18.7 elevation issue in MS Windows if installed over an existing version. An uninstall followed by deletion of all traces before installing 2.18.7 helps. Dev is aware of the issue.

Any idea when this will actually hit stable?

It's been far, far, far too long since the latest stable release of Eddie, and this beta is already 5 months old :/

I worry sometimes Air bites more than it can chew - even Android release (which does work well) is not updated frequently (yes, I understand that you don't 'always' need to have new releases, but dependencies/libraries get older/updates themselves).

@airdev

Android app must be extensively rewritten to meet new Google requirements for Android 9 and 10. No reason to hurry as the app does everything we and our customers need. It's not written anywhere that an app that works perfectly must be "frequently updated".

About Eddie the development is slow, you are correct, but Mac and Linux users can now count on a totally different stable application which is also evolving in something more (i.e. a real daemon with frontend applications). Once completed with a GUI, even Windows development will become faster, as Eddie for Windows can be prioritized over Linux and Mac. We have invested a lot of time to fix critical bugs on OpenVPN3 library (which could not even work properly in Linux) and implement new key features. It's an investment in development time that may make the naive observer think that Air development is slow, but such investment will be repaid with high interests rate in the very near future.

Last but not least the development of OpenVPN 3-AirVPN by AirVPN has shaken OpenVPN community and symptoms that the community is waking up have appeared. If OpenVPN3 community wakes up even our fork will require less development time, obviously.

Kind regards

(full info)

Eddie version: 2.18.7 / linux_x64, System: Linux, Name: Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS \n \l, Version: Linux bunkerhill 5.5.9-050509-generic #202003120738 SMP Thu Mar 12 07:41:55 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux, Mono/.Net: 5.10.0.140 (tarball Sat Feb 24 15:30:44 UTC 2018); Framework: v4.0.30319


Running eddie-ui --cli on Ubuntu (terminal version only, I don't have a GUI)

Command line run:

 sudo ./eddie-ui --cli --connect --server=redacted --login=redacted --password="(redacted)"


Issues:
1) Upon startup, it runs up to "Collect information about AirVPN completed", where it appears to stop, or at least pause for an extremely long time.  Probably should be addressed or at least consider providing some feedback to the user, otherwise you may end up with a lot of support requests.

2) --routes.custom doesn't seem to work.  When I add --routes.custom="69.16.179.29,out;69.16.179.28,out" to my command line, there are no corresponding entries made in my routing table as shown by "ip route".


Minor issue:
The path displayed in the terminal for the profile has an extra slash: 

Profile path: /home/jeff/eddie-ui//default.profile

Thx, we will release a new version today or tomorrow, after checking this issues.

About 1), it occurs because Eddie tries to perform some latency tests (ping) to choose the best server for you.
I confirm there is a bug: the UI shows the tests progress, the CLI does not, it will be fixed.
Anyway, how many seconds is your "extremely long time"? We are thinking about enforcing some limits/timeout to reduce it.
If you use "-servers.startlast" the latency tests are skipped, Eddie connects directly to the last used server (if available). And if you whitelist servers or countries, the latency tests are performed only with whitelisted servers, reducing time.

Why is it performing a latency test at all if the --server option is specified?  Seems like that should skip it, just like --servers.startlast.

Now the latency tests have a feedback also in CLI edition, are faster (more concurrency threads), and specify a --server skip the latency test.


@rgrdgr  the bug about routes in cmdline is fixed, please retry.

@Clodo
I'm still seeing a long pause after "Collect information about AirVPN completed" in both "eddie-ui --cli" and "eddie-cli".  It's been 7 minutes and I'm getting no indication of activity.  It seems to vary a lot, however - other times it runs by quickly.

--route.custom appears to work now, thanks.

Installed portable 2.18.8 on Win10x64-1909... When connecting I get constant restarts... and this (see attached screen grab). No issues with 2.18.7.

Does't work on Debian Buster on RPi4. After installation it throws "Unable to obtain elevated privileges" error on start when called "/usr/bin/eddie-ui". If started with sudo "sudo /usr/bin/eddie-ui", then it is stuck forewer on "Raise system privileges" step.

Reverting back to stable version, until this is fixed.
