Re: Tor not working

Hash: RIPEMD160

are you running vidalia? vidalia manages starting up tor. obviously you
have got privoxy auto-starting, so that's not at issue. you could always
go without vidalia but then you miss out on all the neat interface
features in vidalia like watching the log and bandwidth usage and the
geoip map and info pages.
