vidalia-0.2.15-1~oneiric tries to start a per-user Tor with system-wide settings
Hi all!! I hope this is the correct way to contact the Tor Vidalia bundle developers; if not, I'm sorry, but this is the only way I have to communicate with someone. I usu Ubuntu 11.10 64bit. Yesterday I update my Vidalia version from the repository below.
deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org oneiric main
Now, when I start Vidalia, I have an error message; this is the content of logfile
dic 14 14:28:28.306 [Notice] Tor v0.2.2.34 (git-c55c166e73d500af). This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Linux x86_64) dic 14 14:28:28.307 [Notice] Initialized libevent version 1.4.14b-stable using method epoll. Good. dic 14 14:28:28.307 [Notice] Opening Socks listener on 127.0.0.1:9050 dic 14 14:28:28.307 [Notice] Opening Control listener on 127.0.0.1:9051 dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Warning] Directory /var/run/tor does not exist. dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Warning] Before Tor can create a control socket in "/var/run/tor/control", the directory "/var/run/tor" needs to exist, and to be accessible only by the user account that is running Tor. (On some Unix systems, anybody who can list a socket can conect to it, so Tor is being careful.) dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Notice] Closing partially-constructed listener Socks listener on 127.0.0.1:9050 dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Notice] Closing partially-constructed listener Control listener on 127.0.0.1:9051 dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Warning] Failed to parse/validate config: Failed to bind one of the listener ports. dic 14 14:28:28.308 [Error] Reading config failed--see warnings above.
Then I created the tor directory in /var/run/ and changed his owner to me, as request by vidalia. As a result I have the same error and the only change in logfile is in bolded text, changed in dic 14 14:32:19.405 [Warning] Permissions on directory /var/run/tor are too permissive.
Previous version was full functionally.
Thanks a lot for your hard work. I hope this mail can help you to improve program :) Kinda regards Simone
