Yes, something has bound to 127.0.0.1:9050 which is what Tor wants.

Code:
Apr 19 18:16:38.848 [warn] Could not bind to 127.0.0.1:9050: Cannot assign requested address
Apr 19 18:16:38.848 [warn] Failed to parse/validate config: Failed to bind one of the listener ports.
Run netstat -nap | grep :9050 as root and stop/kill the offending process, then try again.

After running the command, nothing shows up:
Code:
localhost:/home/anarion# netstat -nap | grep :9050
localhost:/home/anarion#
Could it be some iptables rules or something similar?

I doubt it, but sure, stop iptables. Have you tried running your apt-get install again? Is there anything more in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/tor/tor.log ?

the tor.log doesn't exist at all, and nothing about this problem was stated in syslog I disabled the iptables temporarily and tried to reinstall... but the same came up
so, what can be the cause?

Thanks for helping me out

OK I finally managed to work it out!
It was iptables, now that I installed firestarter, it allowed all outgoing connections, I did that because of my torrent downloads, but now tor started without problem.

Thanks!

It was iptables Nope! It was the loopback device being down. A simple ifconfig did the job:
Code:
ifconfig
This didn't include the lo device, so:
Code:
ifconfig lo up
This made it up again
