I have been unable to get tor, version tor, or, 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

(If Tor 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.
