Unable to run Tor as a relay: "Control socket is not connected"
My home server runs Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon. I'd like to set it up as a non-exit relay on the Tor network.
If I set Vidalia to run Tor as a client only, everything works fine. If I set it to run as a non-exit relay, however, I get an error when I try to connect:
"Vidalia was unable to apply your Server settings to Tor. Control socket is not connected."
And a corresponding log entry:
Nov 10 23:18:54.797 [Error] set_options(): Bug: Acting on config options left us in a broken state. Dying.
I receive this same error whether I run the version of Vidalia from the Tor browser bundle, the Ubuntu repo, or the torproject repo.
