Description

I have been unable to get tor, version tor 0.1.0.5-rc, or 0.0.9.9, running on tiger. The start script, when invoked manually, responds with: ./tor: line 59: $1: unbound variable

Did you invoke it as "./tor" ? You need to provide an argument as in "./tor start" or "./tor stop".

Also, see bug 126.

Sorry, I've tried it a couple of ways, including expanding all of the variables in the start script, then pasting that on a command line.
I've just run ./tor start, here's the result:
[ip192-168-1-20:/Library/StartupItems/Tor] chris% May 10 19:01:44.589 [notice] tor_init(): Tor v0.1.0.5-rc. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity.

Fix 0. Try the latest experimental Tor installer for Tiger at

http://wangafu.net/~nickm/Tor%200.1.0.6-rc%20Bundle.dmg

(If Tor 0.1.0.7 is out by the time you check this, try that instead.)


Option 1: put the Tor script in /Library/StartupItems/Tor, where it will get invoked automatically.

Option 2: Just run /usr/bin/tor if you don't want Tor to be a startup item.

Option 3: If you run the startup script, you need to do it as root or as _tor.

1.0.7-rc appears to be working nicely on Tiger.
