Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This is my second post in this forum. Sorry if I have spelling or grammar errors, because I'm not English, but Spanish.
Well... I've some questions about the use of Blossom with the anonymizer software Tor.
I downloaded Blossom from here . Then, I unpacked the tarball. Later, I ejected the Tor program and Blossom (by Python interpreter). The torrc file is well configured to accept controller applications (I uncommented the #ControlPort 9051 line) and it's situated in the correct directory.
When I'm going to use both programs, first I start Tor client and I eject the blossom.py file. Then I open my Firefox web browser and I write the address 127.0.0.1:9052.
I wait, and wait, and wait... but nothing appears. Firefox tries to connect, but as I said before, nothing appears.
Do somebody has the same problem? Do you know what could be happening?
The first time, when I tried to use Blossom, Tor already was in use. I tried use Tor with and without Privoxy.
But now (the second time after the compilation), when I've tried to eject Blossom, it shows this message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./blossom.py", line 3183, in <module>
File "./blossom.py", line 3144, in main
conn = getConnection()
File "./blossom.py", line 1934, in getConnection
File "/home/drivx/security/blossom/TorCtl1.py", line 169, in authenticate
File "/home/drivx/security/blossom/TorCtl1.py", line 154, in _sendAndRecv
lines = self._sendImpl(self._doSend, msg)
File "/home/drivx/security/blossom/TorCtl.py", line 376, in _sendImpl
So is TOR itself still running? Can you send control messages with the python script that came with TOR? Does the firewall block the port? Note you can't use TOR for most services without connecting through a local proxy like Polipo or Privoxy. The error itself doesn't make it clear to me if Blossom has trouble connecting or authenticating: best check that with the Blossom developers on their mailing list.
I'm going to say what do I do since I switch on my computer. When I'm in the Desktop, I eject my Tor client in the terminal and it shows this:

I use Privoxy, but it charges automatically when I start my OS.
And then, I eject the file blossom.py, which shows the above error message.
