download libevent souce code download tor source code unpack both to different directorys ./configure make make install libevent first then assuming libevent compiled ok it should be in /usr/local now for tor ./configure --with-libevent-dir=/usr/local make make install tor should be ready but make sure you have gcc and a proper devel setup first kernel source and friends it will work on opensuse 11.4 because i have done it from derram i hope it works for you
If you install it from a repo look for version 0.2.2.34 (the current one).
For use the web-proxy ‘polipo’ is recommended, with a sample config file being availible in the TORproject wiki.
For use with firefox you can look at “TORbutton” or foxyproxy, the latter is not liked much by the TOR community, but I myself think it’s pretty comfortable, if you’re not overly paranoid.
Vidalia for configuration(GUI), or for the same purpose ARM (CLI).
And just as an aside: Try to configure your node as exit or relay, to make the TOR-network bigger
