I'm installing a bridge on a new droplet. Small issue with torrc; couldn't bind to control port. Forgot relay was on control port 9050 so changed to 9055. Now torrc is happy.

NYX is not. sudo apt-get install nyx: without complaint from Ubuntu. Below is what I get when I enter nyx or debian-tor:

It's always something!


PS- Thanks much for any help :-) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

File "/usr/bin/nyx", line 11, in load_entry_point('nyx==2.0.4', 'console_scripts', 'nyx')() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/init.py", line 480, in load_entry_point return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/init.py", line 2693, in load_entry_point return ep.load() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/init.py", line 2324, in load return self.resolve() File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/init.py", line 2330, in resolve module = import(self.module_name, fromlist=['name'], level=0) File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/nyx/init.py", line 46, in import distutils.spawn ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'distutils.spawn'

  • Got it!!! sudo apt-get install python3-distutils :-)
