I followed the instructions to install Tor in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
When I invoke Tor from the command line it proceeds to the point that I'm told that it has bootstrapped 100% and a circuit is established. But then I keep getting the warning,
Got a certificate for ides, but we already have it. Maybe they haven't updated it. Waiting for a while.
and it loops forever.
I am also warned that I have an old version of Tor, 0.2.2.25, although my understanding is that the correct version should have been installed. Doc says that
apt-get update will fix my problem but it seems to do so. Not Good. In the end I don't care what flavor of *nix I run since I won't use the machine for anything but for running the relay currently on my other machine, but I heard Ubuntu is easy to use.
torrc is vanilla except for changing
SocksPort to 9053 so that it wouldn't collide w / my relay running on another machine.
- How to I get Tor to boot successfully ?
- How do I get the latest version?
This is but my second day of using *nix, so be gentle and detailed w/ me.
