For those having problems of slow SSL/TLS times, broken page css and other "eternally loading" behaviors, you should lower your MTU and MSS using this:

iptables -I OUTPUT -o tun0 -p tcp --tcp-flags SYN,RST SYN -j TCPMSS --set-mss 1140
ip link set dev tun0 mtu 1200

Please note that this is the "sweet spot" for my ISP, and yours could be higher. Tried mss 1420 and MTU 1460, mss 1200 and mtu 1240 and didn't worked out in MY scenario...

I have adopted the package and, hopefully, fixed all the outstanding issues.

Not sure if this will ever get fixed.

Meanwhile, just use the installer from the official website: chmod +x the installer the run it. It should work.

Installing this is still broken, over a year later. Can this be fixed or a new maintainer found?

The package is unfortunately still broken, but it seems that the solution proposed by hyness still works (prepending a v to the tag on that github link). Please update?

flamusdiu commented on 2021-01-14 16:57 (UTC)

Woops. I'll get that updated.

I got the following error when building

-> Creating working copy of python-pia git repo...
Cloning into 'python-pia'...
fatal: invalid reference: 3.4

I was able to fix it by prepending a vto the tag
