i'll start a 'near-stock' build here in a second ... w/
given a clean/stock build as:
% autoreconf -i -f % ./configure \ --prefix=/usr/local/tor-test % make % make install
% cp /usr/local/tor-test/etc/tor/torrc.sample /usr/local/tor-test/etc/tor/torrc % cp torrc.sample torrc % /usr/local/tor-test/etc/tor
syslog shows: ... Aug 26 10:24:18.708 [notice] Tor v0.1.1.5-alpha-cvs. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. Aug 26 10:24:18.712 [notice] Initialized libevent version 1.1a using method poll. Good. Aug 26 10:24:18.713 [notice] connection_create_listener(): Opening Socks listener on 127.0.0.1:9050 Aug 26 10:24:18.715 [warn] tor_init(): You are running Tor as root. You don't need to, and you probably shouldn't. Aug 26 10:24:35.487 [notice] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like it's working.
% ps -ax | grep tor 525 p2 R+ 0:04.37 ./tor
% ls -al /private/var/run/Tor.pid /usr/local/bin/ls: /private/var/run/Tor.pid: No such file or directory
no pidfile is being written.
i suspect it may be the former ... but, again, simply dunno.
thoughts/next steps? thx,
