Install tor and Privoxy on FC5

Hei, guys. I searched fedoraforum in google and found nothing about tor--an anonymous Internet communication system. So I write what I encounter when I install it.
When I install tor from source code,the 'configure' command couldn't be succeed beacause of somthing about 'libevent' wrong, though I realy have installed libevent . So I download tor-0.1.1.20-tor.0.rh4_3.i386.rpm,and succeed to execute :
"yum localinstall /where/you/put/package/tor-0.1.1.20-tor.0.rh4_3.i386".
Then download privoxy-3.0.3-1.i386.rpm for RedHat from www.privoxy.org . This time,rpm worked. Execute :
"rpm -ivh privoxy-3.0.3-1.i386.rpm".
Then open privoxy's "config" file (look in /etc/privoxy/ or /usr/local/etc/) and add the line:
forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .
to the top of the config file. Don't forget to add the dot at the end.
Privoxy keeps a log file of everything passed through it. In order to stop this you will need to comment out two lines by inserting a # before the line. The two lines are:
logfile logfile
and the line
jarfile jarfile

The lastest step, confige our applications to work with tor. I use firefox. If you also use it. View http://freehaven.net/~squires/torbutton/, then double -click and install 'torbutton-1.0.2.xpi' . It will do all the configurations for you.

Haha, now , cleaning all the private information including cookies,and restart you computer. Ok, tor work!

Forget my last post !!

Ok. Forget my last post.

It's already in the repository 'Fedora Extras'. So you can use 'yumex' or 'yum' to install 'tor'.
You must have 'Fedora Extras Repository' enabled. Which you can easily do with yumex. Else over console.

yum install tor privoxy

You don't need to compile tor yourself.

After install you can use tor without privoxy like i do at 127.0.0.1:9050. But of cos with privoxy too as you see in the above postings.

And i would recommend to install FoxyProxy Extension for Firefox. Then you need not TorButton.
FoxyProxy has more settings and you can disable automatically tor individually for sites.
So when you use tor only for www.google.de you can make some regex for this.

have fun.
