error message when starting tor


last year
when I start TOR in Manjaro I get the following error message in Terminal:

Dec 30 10:49:18.714 [notice] Tor v0.2.5.10 (git-42b42605f8d8eac2) running on Linux with Libevent 2.0.21-stable, OpenSSL 1.0.1j and Zlib 1.2.8.

Does anybody have an idea how to solve this?
