Hi Paul,

The older one could start but no socket connection while this one doesn't start here despite having a torrc file presnt:
Sep 17 10:48:44.829 [notice] Configuration file "/tor/etc/tor/torrc" not present
, using reasonable defaults.
A non-recoverable error occurred.  The process ended.

Cheers
Remy

I'll take a punt that libcx needs updating - 0.6.3 was released recently. Sorry, I should have mentioned this.

Cheers,

Hi

I bumped into the same problem as Remy with the 20180916 release and updated libc to 0.6.6-38 and libcx to 0.6.3-1 which resolved the problem.

Seems to be the best tor port to date as I only hit the "[Error] libevent call with select failed: Bad address" failure once in around an hours use - previous releases have been unusable as the problem cropped up every few minutes.

Now to try the 20180917 release to get rid of the log entry "Warning: Cannot get strong entropy: no entropy source found."


Regards

Pete

Hello Remy,

It's under the experimental

Then I have to wait until it is official.
No expérimental with ArcaOS on a unique system which is production system.

Any idea if it will be made available as official ?

With respect to the "[Error] libevent call with select failed: Bad address" message - did tor close, or just log the error and keep running? I had thought I had added workaround code to prevent the app closing.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul

When the "[Error] libevent..." happens tor stops running.

Hey Pete,

When the "[Error] libevent..." happens tor stops running.

Just confirming - this failure is still occurring with 0.3.4.8? I don't understand how given the patch I made - can you post me a full log to my email?

Cheers,

Paul

I updated tor, only tested it enough to see that it bootstraps....

Hi Paul

Tor 0.4.3.6 seems to work OK - limited testing to date.


Thanks
