Sometimes, I get a notification that says "VPN Error" from the Eddie app, but when I try to look at the logs to paste it here, the whole app crashes. Is there any other way I can produce the logs?

Logcat.
What do you do to produce the VPN error? Do you have a weak internet connection? Are you attempting to start a game or something?

My home internet connection isn't weak at all, and the error happens even when I am in bed 6 ft away from the router, and it doesn't happen when I'm starting a game, it happens randomly. Like I could be looking at messages or watching YouTube videos and then suddenly, error.

I get those problems too. If the "VPN Error" is same that locks Eddie until you disconnect and reconnect.
I managed to get some log which seems to have error related to that, but app wasn't running so it's not on realtime.

I'm having problems reading log. App freezes when scrolling down. I didn't find any option to save log on file automatically. 

(I'm using phone to share network on pc and sometimes it stops working when eddie on phone is connected, so thought that maybe eddie log has something useful)

When I press share button in log section the app restarted and log got wiped(though not sure if this was just one time problem)

It works when log is shorter.

 

 

Hello!

 

Thank you for this report. Currently we can't reproduce this issue but we will keep investigating. About saving the log file, we will of course consider to implement this option.

 

You write "not sure if this was just one time problem". Does it mean that it does not happen regularly and you reproduce this "reset" only sometimes when you click the share button?

 

 

Kind regards

It was first time I had that error so couldn't be sure was it just bad luck. But managed to make it happen again. (I'm having problems of getting whole logcat in fedora 28, but I this morning realized how to kind of fix it, so I will try to post some logcat later)

 

The app restarting/crashing when pressing share button in log, seems to happen when log gets long enough to crash/freeze if scrolled. Log can also freeze when scrolled up and down(normal usage way, not with intention to freeze it) when it's a short enough not to crash instantly when scroll starts. (I hope you can make sense of that last sentence.)

 

If log is short it can get crashed if swiped up and down with intention of crashing, though it takes a bit time.(~10s) (Of course my phone has kind of low specs.) (Also small question out of topic: Is it known problem that when editing post the quote changes to normal text if I press backspace? I removed part of quoted text so maybe that's part of the problem.)

Can reproduce. Tried to reproduce the network changing error and stumbled upon this by simply filling the log with entries.

  1. Connect normally.
  2. Change WiFi network.
  3. Couldn't connect this time, generated the VPN error message from another user.
  4. Tried to view the log. No logcat initially, but going forth and back into the app repeatedly generates these two entries. I don't think they help, though.

This I cannot reproduce.

 

Will check the WiFi <> Mobile thing later.

When I started to scroll log up and down and made it crash, this was the log output.(It was semi-short log so took ~3s intense scroll to freeze/chrash it)
Here is logcat output of that(there are few lines before the freeze occurred.)

How do I get the logcat so I can post the error here? I don't have root so if that is needed then I won't be able to post them.

This might not be greatest explanation, but it should be enough.
I believe there are apps for that in playstore
Or
If you want to get it from pc with phone connected to USB
You need to enable usb debugging in Settings -> developer options. (Google how to "unhide" it if you don't know how)
You need adb on computer.
If you don't want to run adb as root you must set usb mode when connected to "Transfer files" or similar.
Then use command "adb logcat". (I'm on fedora 28 and for some reason it stops log at random points, so I need to retry until it gets to realtime)

There are two main ways:

  1. By using SysLog. This dumps the whole log. No PC needed.
  2. By using adb. More involved, but it's possible to precisely filter the output. PC needed.

Edit: Logcat has a dedicated article. :D

Thank you, I already have ADB installed on my PC, so I will try that method next time it crashes

I got the same error. VPN has encounter a error, therefore VPN is locked and to check the log. When i tried to open the log, eddie froze and couldnt get it to close. I had to do a force close. Eddie was fine before I went to sleep. After about 4 hours later when I went to use my phone is when I noticed the error message.  I'm using Samsung galaxy s7 edge oreo (G935P)

Hello!
 
We're very glad to inform you that Eddie Android Edition 1.0 RC5 (VC 8) has just been released.
 
The application has been completely ported and rewritten in Java, Mono is no more used from this release on.

 

Main features (compared to RC4):

  • fix of fatal ANR issues while opening or scrolling log view, settings view and applications white/black lists caused by Mono libraries
  • fix of crashes and ANR issues during application initialization caused by Mono libraries
  • fix of fatal segmentation faults caused by Mono libraries
  • fix of other crashes caused by Mono libraries
  • smaller package size (approximately 60% smaller size than RC4)
  • lower RAM footprint (approximately 30% lower footprint than RC4)
  • improved detection of network status changes, OpenVPN warnings and OpenVPN errors
  • more responsive user interface
  • new panels with stats and information about throughput and connection
  • Turkish language localization
  • longer battery life on equal footing (approximately +10% against RC4, +18% against OpenVPN for Android (*))

(*) comparison made with OpenVPN for Android version featuring OpenVPN 2.5 linked against OpenSSL
