Thank you for your reply, Mr. Glenn. I gave up on the Pi/TOR idea .. couldn't get any help. I have a new PI 2 sitting here unboxed. Might see what I can do with it. Weird thing is, in the VIDALIA list of people, I see Raspberry throughout the list. Many people are doing what I TRIED to do, but ...

I will look into it and put a static IP in torrc if possible.

Vidalia log errors

by WacoJohn in General Questions

  WacoJohn   5 months ago

On a previous version of Tor Bundle, I was running a non-exit relay. Noticed an announcement there is a new version available ... torbrowser-install-3.5_en-US.exe. To my surprise, it does not come with Vidalia and I did not know how to set up my relay without it (Vidalia). I went and got vidalia- ...

Run
# top
and look what it shows. What processes eat more CPU?"Danja"
None in particular AT FIRST, but after several minutes, Vidalia shoots up to 90% along with Chromium increasing also.
Which brings me to a couple of sophomoric questions. Obviously if I am running a relay, I am ...

I am sorry to say ... maybe I spoke too soon. Yes .. it seems to work .... but CPU is running at 100% and Chrome (torified) is so slow as to be unusable. If a fix occurs to you, I would like to tune it up ... if not ...will probably abandon the whole idea. I never thought running Tor on a Raspber ...

You can start Chromium in console, this will definitely work:
# /usr/bin/chromium --proxy-server="socks5://127.0.0.1:9050""Danja"
It works!!! at least I think it does. First, I click on Vidalia, then execute Chromium
/usr/bin/chromium --proxy-server="socks5://127.0.0.1:9050"

Then, let's configure it via the command line!
Run Chromium with this switch:

Oh, wait. Midori 0.5.0 and later does supports SOCKS5 proxies, so you don't need Polipo, you can use Tor directly. My bad. )
So put this settings in Midori:
Host: 127.0.0.1
Port: 9050
Type: Socks5 proxy
Here are some onion links, to check if it is working:

Set Vidalia to be an Exit Relay.

Omg, why??
PS: It seems, that your Tor doesnt stop when Vidalia stops. You should stop it manually before running Vidalia again:
# /etc/init.d/tor stop"WacoJohn"
Uhmmm, .. true, I don't know EXACTLY what an exit relay is ... but fr ...
