I install tor in my fedora7. but it doesnt work. I started according this:
#yum install tor
#yum install privoxy
install Torbutton plugin
in path /etc/privoxy/config added this line at the top of privoxy:
forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 . http://i3.tinypic.com/66iytl5.png
but it didnt work and showed me an error: http://i14.tinypic.com/4muhdp2.png
I runned tor from press tor button in my firefox but there was an error.
other changes to the privoxy config file?
The torbutton only configures firefox to connect to an already running instance of tor. The other changes that are reccomended in the privoxy config file are: Comment out logging, comment out java and to comment out one of error reports (I can't remember which line it is at the moment). All the info is on the tor website.
I perform it according :
After installing Tor, you need to configure your applications to use it.
The first step is to set up web browsing. Start by installing Privoxy: click on 'recent releases' and pick your favorite package or install from source. Privoxy is a filtering web proxy that integrates well with Tor.
Once you've installed Privoxy (either from package or from source), you will need to configure Privoxy to use Tor. Open Privoxy's "config" file (look in /etc/privoxy/ or /usr/local/etc/) and add the line
forward-socks4a / 127.0.0.1:9050 .
to the top of the config file. Don't forget to add the dot at the end.
Privoxy keeps a log file of everything passed through it. In order to stop this you will need to comment out three lines by inserting a # before the line. The three lines are:
and the line
and (on some systems) the line
debug 1 # show each GET/POST/CONNECT request
Depending on which default config file you have for Privoxy, you may also need to turn off enable-remote-toggle, enable-remote-http-toggle, and enable-edit-actions.
You'll need to restart Privoxy for the changes to take effect.
but i confuse in this section.i dont know certainly .do i edit in /etc/privoxy/config ? and where and how should i add these lines?

The "forward-socks4a" line goes near the bottom of a standard Privoxy config file (yes, /etc/privoxy/config) where you configure parent or upstream proxies. The other options enable-remote-toggle, enable-remote-http-toggle and enable-edit-actions can be found (searched for) in a standard Privoxy config file and edited there or through the web interface (if enabled and when running Privoxy).
If you don't need the filtering capabilities of Privoxy there's a lightweight alternative: Polipo.
Why is that? The Tor website says to make this entry at the top of the privoxy config file.
I've been using Privoxy since it was called Junkbuster and the top of the config starts with the directory, file and filter locations followed by logging etc, etc and the "forward" lines have *always* been near the bottom of the config as long as I can remember. Maybe they take the "first match wins" thing a bit to literal ;-p Of course it wouldn't hurt placing it at the top since that way you ensure no "forward some.doma.in ." can escape forwarding.
