I have found a few bugs on Master 2.2 alpha dev with "circvum windows" patch on ubuntu
jaunty x86 64, libevent 1.3e

"LongLivesPorts" don't work, all programs like irc, chat ect... close the connections in a
couple secounds or minutes.

i have added manualy the command in torrc but make no difference.

Tor become many more trafic "recieve" as "send" ex: 200KB in and only 130 KB out . i run with "DirPort" so
it don't seem normal.

many warn "eventDNS" , in 2 days 3 times tor was overloaded and crashed vidalia. ( i run 4 cpus ) and tor
prcocess was only 2 %

With the patch "circvum windows", when i connect me to a site who open some page or connections on same
circuit, the page don't load or are extrem slow.

ex: when will try a speed test or decloak, when are on the last speed test or when decloak will give the
final result, the page don't load and some connections stay connected on the circuit. so need many time
close it manually

about logs, are nothing who can help except the many "eventDnS" error

Well actualy only 2.17 rc are done for jaunty 64 and it run well.

All master branch with or without patch , make the problem describe up.

So only the multi-connections problem can be from patch but about eventDNS, overloads, become many more data as send and the connections closing to early are on all master tested on my OS.

I have build on another pc in a same os and now the "liveslongPort" work. i have uninstall and clean all version and folders of tor in the pc who was the "circvum windows patch" and work too.

So was a trace who have make problem with the master only ..

For the others errors, i will wait the next days and told if the others stay or not.

well happy to early, with master brach only, the problem come back after a couple hours...

I don't become so much "eventDNS" errors, that's all

comment:6 Changed 10 years ago by stars

i have updated today my build with last "master" a couple hours before and now all the bugs "LiveLongPorts" , "bandwitch", "multiconnections", "eventDNS", are fixed.

I run more 4 hours yet and my irc with 7 servers open have not 1 time close the connection or failed to build it.

I will run to tomorow andif all are fine , i will try again the patch "circvum windows" to see if it bug or not.
