Re: arm, TorCtl, and FreeBSD
The most recent version tries to resolve the pid with pidof, netstat, then ps. The only issue I'm aware of at the moment for arm on BSD/OSX is that their versions of netstat are different from Linux so the connections page won't show you anything. Someone's suggested using lsof as a fallback (it's supposed to be more portable), which I'll look into at some point. Cheers! -Damian

Actually the 'pidof' command is available in the FreeBSD ports tree - are there other mechanisms that FreeBSD is missing that arm uses ?

Some of the ways arm tries to get the pid of the Tor process are linux
only. Otherwise, arm works fine in the bsds.
Yes, I see that now.
Secondly, the TorCtl python tool that is a requirement of 'arm' - is
that available as a normal HTTP download somewhere, or do I need to svn
If you co arm, you'll get torctl as well.
I installed both 'pidof' and Python 2.6 on FreeBSD 6.4-RELEASE and 'arm' seems to work perfectly. I have not noticed any functionality missing ... perhaps there is, though ?
