After wondering why Tor would download but would not run on my raspberry pi, I found this question. How To Run Tor On Raspberry Pi. The answer says:
Solution If you want to run newer Tor versions than are available from the Raspbian folks, you will have to build them yourself.
You can build it from the source tarball like a lot of other Unix/Linux software and install it locally.
But I cant find any tutorials on how to do this. Can anyone tell me how I install tor from the source locally? Thanks!
