tbb bundle with meek takes (literally) hours to connect
|Reported by:||cypherpunks||Owned by:||dcf|
I tried out the experimental Tor Browser bundle with meek (version 3.5.4-meek-1-Linux, 32 bit).
When first launching the bundle, it took literally hours to make the first connection to the tor network. The progress bar was hung at ~50%, the console showed error messages like:
[notice] I learned some more directory information, but not enough to build a circuit: We need more microdescriptors: we have 883/4458, and can only build 0% of likely paths. (We have 20% of guards bw, 21% of midpoint bw, and 21% of exit bw.)
[notice] Bootstrapped 72%: Loading relay descriptors.
[warn] Problem bootstrapping. Stuck at 72%: Loading relay descriptors. (DONE; DONE; count 1; recommendation warn)
I quit & restarted it several times, the bootstrapping progress seemed to restart from where it had left off, but it literally took hours before I had a tor browser window.
After that, TBB with meek worked reasonably well, albeit slower than normal Tor Browser
