Re: arm, TorCtl, and FreeBSD

The most recent version tries to resolve the pid with pidof, netstat, then ps. The only issue I'm aware of at the moment for arm on BSD/OSX is that their versions of netstat are different from Linux so the connections page won't show you anything. Someone's suggested using lsof as a fallback (it's supposed to be more portable), which I'll look into at some point. Cheers! -Damian

Some of the ways arm tries to get the pid of the Tor process are linux
only.  Otherwise, arm works fine in the bsds.

Actually the 'pidof' command is available in the FreeBSD ports tree - are there other mechanisms that FreeBSD is missing that arm uses ?

Secondly, the TorCtl python tool that is a requirement of 'arm' - is
that available as a normal HTTP download somewhere, or do I need to svn
co ?

If you co arm, you'll get torctl as well.

Yes, I see that now.

I installed both 'pidof' and Python 2.6 on FreeBSD 6.4-RELEASE and 'arm' seems to work perfectly.  I have not noticed any functionality missing ... perhaps there is, though ?
