Thread: Trying to follow a guide to install Tor

  1. #1

    Default Trying to follow a guide to install Tor

    Hi, I'm trying to follow this guide, I literally haven't got past step one :/

    I'm assuming Yum is the same type of thing as YasT? It's telling me to add repo's (using Yum which I don't have).

    I'm sure there's someone around who can translate in into YasT for me no?

    Thanks

    Adding a repository can be done with 'zypper' or 'Yast'. In your case,
    use Yast under Software: Software Repositories.

    Now keep in mind that SUSE repositories and RedHat repositories are not
    the same thing; the metadata read by the zypper or yum utilities are
    different and so it is not likely that instructions for
    RedHat/CentOS/Fedora will work perfectly for you unless the creator
    somehow intended that to be the case. Since I have not read the link I
    cannot gauge for you, but your alternative is to pull down the RPMs from
    the repository yourself and the install them locally (zypper/rpm commands).

    Good luck.

    I installed Tor from the tarball - guidance here: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-unix.html.en

    I don't nominally use it. I installed it mainly to prove to myself it was relatively easy to do.

    The recommended way on the Tor site:

    https://www.torproject.org/

    for users, is to download the "Tor browser bundle". It is hassle free.
    If you want to provide the service for others, that's different, you
    need something else.

    It is easy to find on their main page :-)

    Thanks that worked perfectly

    I have one tiny annoyance though, I'm trying to create a shortcut on my desktop (through the right click menu) but ti says the file can't be created.

    Actually, you should be able to do <everything> using the Tor Browser Bundle, some services like setting up as a Tor node just aren't enabled by default.
    So, there's likely no reason to install Tor using anything but the TBB.

    And, updating the latest version only involves d/l the TBB and re-launching, not automatic like "zypper up" but does mean you don't have to wait for maintainers to create and upload packages.

    There are very good reasons for this: for some more pointers see http://www.bradlug.co.uk/january-20t...gp-and-gaming/

    Rather "may". It doesn't if you use TOR for different objectives that do
    not threaten life or freedom.
