Re: (tor + linux).install()

tor user,

Thank's for the suggestions. I actually ended up compiling the tor binary on a different machine with identical architecture, a fully updated Ubuntu machine (complete with the latest versions of openssl / libevent successfully installed), manually inserting the "-static" compiler flag into the Makefile located in tor-dir/src/or. Then, I took the binary and simply scp'ed it over the this bare-minimum machine. This trick seemed to successfully eliminate the broken library dependencies.

Best Regards,

I have a bare-minimum linux box, much like a
planetlab node that I'd like to use to deploy a Tor relay. In installing Tor, I am having trouble satisfying the dependencies for the latest stable tor linux source tarball (tor- I (believe I) have successfully installed the latest stable version of libevent, version 1.3e (libevent-1.3e.tar.gz). The "make verify" of the installed libevent library seemed to pass all provided tests. However, when I run "./configure" in the untared tor-dir, I receive the
following error message:

checking for u_int16_t... yes
checking for u_int8_t... yes
checking for libevent directory... (system)
checking whether we need extra options to link
libevent... configure: error: Found linkable libevent in (system), but it doesn't run, even with -R. Maybe specify another using

Any advice, comments, or suggestions on why this
might be happening or how to go about satisfying this dependency would be
very much appreciated.

Best Regards,

You probably forgot to run ldconfig after installing
