Re: tor-

Hash: RIPEMD160


Well I finally ran down the problem, and it was not what it appeared
to be at first.  The problem was not per say with Tor, but with Openssl.

I compiled the new libevent, and installed it, and compiled
tor- again and installed it with the same results I had been
having.  After digging through the logs for awhile I noticed that when
tor was first starting it was unable to initialize the encryption keys:
Oct 28 15:10:11.693 [notice] Tor opening log file.
Oct 28 15:10:12.698 [err] init_keys(): Error creating TLS context for OP.
Oct 28 15:10:12.698 [err] do_main_loop(): Error initializing keys; exiting

I recompiled and reinstalled tor-, and this time got the same
results as with tor- I had to recompile because tor-
that I had previously compiled would not work with the new version of
libevent. Regardless, even the new compile would not work.

Next step was to recompile Openssl, and compile everything against it,
and that finally did the trick.

Openssl on Vector Linux 5.1 SOHO, has been a problem from the start,
and I reckon I should have suspected the problem might be in it from
the beginning except for the fact that after the last time I compiled
it, it had been working pretty well.

Thanks again.
