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:
and the line
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!
