Tor just died on me with a message about a dns failure and now I cannot restart it. No error messages (in Tork). Firing up vidalia...I get this AGAIN:

Back to or so.  Tor- IS broken.


I don't run Tor- but this fix from Tor- may work for you.

I ran into this error with and found it was caused by the init script for Tor doing an 'su' to the $toruser and then passing the user and group options when starting Tor. I removed the user and group options when Tor is started and it now works fine. It seems the $toruser does not have sufficient permissions to change the programs group.

	Removing the 'su' call would also likely work but I have not tried it.
