Tor won't start on -current


The script from SBo builds just fine. but tor hangs ate the "Raising maximum number of filedescriptors (ulimit -n) to 32768...
Starting Tor..." and nothing happens. Waited for an hour and still no luck.
latest slackware current iso by alienbob.
thanks for any help. Sorry about the english, not my primary language.

also SBo's git master branch it's ok ATM, now that things are settling up for 14.2.

the build scripts that you can find on SBo's web repository are for the latest stable release of Slackware (now 14.1), they are not guaranteed to work on current.

I have TOR working on current. Here is what I did.
Download TOR from the TOR site and expand it where I want it. Works as is. From what I saw, TOR is not really built by a Slackpkg but just repackaged

well, it's not like that: with the SBo's SlackBuild, actually, beside building it from source, there's a lot of added value (run as a daemon with a custom user, there's an init script, a logrotate script, etc).

Hmm, I followed the link from the SBO to
https://dist.torproject.org/torbrows...rowser-linux32
and took a good look around only to NOT find source code. These things run when extracted.

Anyway, if all you want is TOR to run just dl and extract and run. If value added is what you want then keep beeting your head into the wall

you seem to be talking about another thing (not what OP asked): one is tor

https://www.torproject.org/
https://dist.torproject.org/ (sources)

and another is the tor-browser bundle (a bundle of tor with a prebuilt dedicated browser): there's too a SlackBuild of that, still with added value.

using the tor-browser bundle is not mandatory, you can use just tor (if you prefer together with privoxy) with the browser you like.

ponce's scripts did the trick. Thank you all for your inputs. Thank you very much spongetron and ponce. Gordie, beat your head into the wall is not necessary, slackware is about learning and help from community.
