Re: tor can not start?!

thanks a lot for your fast responses!
tor now work pretty fine. but only local on my macbook.
now i had the idea to run tor and privoxy on my little "home-server" also as a tor-server. but for this i have some questions: everytime i use the internet, i use the internet-connection from my server via OpenVPN. so isn't it is very easy to run tor/privoxy on my server? then i could use the tor network from my computers in my home LAN and i could use it over vpn. but here is the question: what changes are needed for this? the ip of my server in the LAN is and the vpn server adress is

but before configuring tor and privoxy, i had a problem with installing privoxy ( i know, this is the tor-mailing list, but maybe someone want to help me with my privoxy installation problems). i had privoxy running on my server, but somehow i didnt worked anymore. so now, several times later i wanted to reinstall privoxy. first i releted erverything related to privoxy (and tor) --> /etc/ tor/ /etc/privoxy/ /etc/torrc.conf
and when i want to reinstall tor an privoxy i get:
Richte privoxy ein (3.0.6-1~edgy1) ...
chown: Zugriff auf \u201e/etc/privoxy/user.action\u201c nicht mˆglich: No such file or directory chown: Zugriff auf \u201e/etc/privoxy/trust\u201c nicht mˆglich: No such file or directory
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von privoxy (--configure):
Unterprozess post-installation script gab den Fehlerwert 1 zur¸ck
Fehler traten auf beim Bearbeiten von:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
i hope you understand this german/english mix ;)

so what do i have to do, when i want to run privoxy?

authorities as Tor uses by default, the defaults could change in the
future.  Be sure you know what you're doing.
try removing or commenting out the DirServer entry from your torrc file (

it's the second time this problem appears, maybe a default
misconfiguration slip in the unstable packages? (I mean: DirServer looks really useful if you want to test out an unreleased version in a private
tor network, but it's less useful when the program is released ;-) )
