Try the release -- it will start only 2 processes and then

How much ram does your linksys have? I hear they have been selling them
with less and less ram to discourage people from using them for anything,
so the newer it is the less likely it will run Tor (or heck, Linux) well.

nmap won't scan all the ports. It is the wrong tool for that purpose.
Try netstat instead.
