"Tor unexpectedly exited" if there is a wrong line in torrc
I decided to add a new fte bridge and by chance I had torrc open in my text editor then entered "bridg fte ip:port fingerprint". (I shouldn't have done that.)
Then I started Tor Launcher and it kept spitting out "Tor Unexpectedly exited". So I did a ./start-tor-browser
Jun 30 22:49:58.033 [warn] Failed to parse/validate config: Unknown option 'Bridg'. Failing. Jun 30 22:49:58.033 [err] Reading config failed--see warnings above.
Wouldn't it be better if Tor Launcher reported back the above messages? I would've never knew my error if I were using Windows.
Also, here's a part of my conversation with arma:
<arma4> what is the bad bridge line? i assume tor does give an explanation. <sherief> I would've never knew what's wrong without ./start-tor-browser <sherief> "bridg" missing an "e" <sherief> :) <sherief> bridg transportType IP:Port fingerprint <arma4> expands to bridgeauthoritativedir <arma4> can you file a ticket, that bridg should expand to bridge? <arma4> V(BridgeAuthoritativeDir, BOOL, "0"), <arma4> VAR("Bridge", LINELIST, Bridges, NULL), <arma4> i think we just reverse the order of these two lines and it's done <arma4> doesn't resolve your general issue, but resolves this specific one
