I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask this, so please bear with me. has an installer that sets up privoxy, vidalia and the torbutton extension. Unfortunately while vidalia is universal, privoxy is a ppc build, which means rosetta on OSX 10.6. It's not a default install, and not something I really want to have installed either. Unfortunately the alpha build just has vidalia and a link to the torbutton extension, which doesn't do much without privoxy.

The bundles with Tor 0.2.2.x are a new "drag-and-drop" bundle that don't require any installation beyond simply
dragging it to your Applications folder. It includes Tor and Polipo (not Privoxy) within the bundle, pre-configured
to work together.

If you've previously used the old .mpkg type bundle installer, simply remove that previous installation[1] including
your Tor and Privoxy, and then drag the Vidalia icon in the package to your Applications folder as indicated
in the background image shown when you mount the .dmg. Then just run Vidalia from your applications folder, and
it will handle launching everything for you.

The Tor 0.2.3 bundle is confirmed to work on Snow Leopard without Rosetta (I'm using it right now).

Then there is (or may be) with the default configuration of either torbutton or polipo. I don't pretend to know which :)

Fresh install of Snow Leopard, Vidalia installed + torbutton by using the link in the dmg. Started Vidalia and waited for it to connect fully, then enabled Tor via torbutton.

All page requests resulted in a blank error page from firefox. Well, blank save "Or you can add an exception…"

Firefox 3.5.2 if it matters.

Er, "... is/may be a problem with...", my mistake.

Yes, there is a problem with the default config.

It tries to start polipo with /Applications/, the filename is actually /Applications/

As a result polipo never gets started.
