sudo killall tor ?
i used commnad sudo killall tor, then i just restarted vadilia and it working...
Sebastian
kfisher: those two optoins aren't compatible
kfisher
now i have another question on how to set a defaul exit relay. using the hash and inputing it into the config file
Sebastian
if you reconfigure vidalia, choose "don't start tor on boot"
then Vidalia can start it.
kfisher
Huh? so what is running tor now tor or vadilia?
Sebastian
now Vidalia is starting Tor
kfisher
when i reboot i will have same problem agian.....how do i fix it. config vidalia to not start on reboot
Sebastian
dpkg-reconfigure vidalia, I think
then choose not to start Tor on boot
bja
Runa: Is there a way i can review the translations i've submitted on the pootle server?
kfisher
its asking me if i want to stop the exiting tor process and let vidalia start tor? no, yes(just for now), or Yes(and disable it for every boot)
never mind, i didnt read ur no response
xtoaster
bja: you committed ? then you have to commit it again i guess. i used to commit my translation more than 5 times in 1 minute. :-)
Sebastian
kfisher: right, yes(disable for every boot)
kfisher
if i disable for everyboot, does that just mean that i need to manually start vidalia when i reboot?
bja
xtoaster: What do you mean by committin, doesn't the Submitt button do that automagically?
Sebastian
kfisher: I'm sure your desktop environment has a way to start gui applications when you log in
xtoaster
uh let me check. i dont remember quite clearly
kfisher
is is my w7 main machine; now i have another question on how to set a defaul exit relay. using the hash and inputing it into the config file
xtoaster
bja: submit ? you mean the submit blew the textbox ?
no it doesn't commit.
kfisher
ExitNodes server1, server2, server3
StrictExitNodes 1 ----this is what needs to be imput in the config file, but when i put a hash in it cannot connect
xtoaster
kfisher: where did you get the hash ? are you sure the hashed exit is running ?
bja
xtoaster: Ok I'll look at the changes and try to commit them
kfisher
i logged in as client and pulled it from the lister of servers on the map
xtoaster
bja: modify at will :) pootle commit the po file to svn server and cache the translated sentences
kfisher
its starts with a $ and bunch of numbers
xtoaster
bja: the commit link is hidden under "Show Editing Functions "
bja
xtoaster: thx i'll take a look asap
xtoaster
kfisher: yep. but you got to be sure the exit is not sleeping :)
anyway what about trying some more exits
kfisher
how do i check if its sleeping. i put 3 different exit nods in the config.
xtoaster
not sure. i guess 3 is not enough to save you from bad luck :)

[19:51:20] Your Computer's Clock is Potentially Incorrect - Tor has determined that your computer's clock may be set to 3310 seconds in the past compared to the source "DIRSERV:92.243.0.245:9001". If your clock is not correct, Tor will not be able to function. Please verify your computer displays the correct time.
Could this be different time zones
Sebastian
kfisher: is that on windows or Linux?
xtoaster
my tor used to keep crashing for no reason days ago (run as service so unable to see the output)
but when i run it from the console. i see clock incorrect message. after sync the clock. everything works fine so far.
i am no windows
SwissTorExit
kfisher: hi, if your on linux, install ntp, i do always that to never have anymore such message, by the defalut config with ntpd , i get this message too
xtoaster
well, by keep crashing. i mean it suddenly crashed without any sign during web browsing. and it happens randomly quite often.

htat is widnows 7
Sebastian
kfisher: make sure you have the right time and timezone
if you have that, don't worry about it.
it might be the relay that has a problem.
Runa
bja: if it's for the website, you'll have to wait until I convert it back to wml (and phobos converts to html and pushes the website)
bja: this can only be done when you have translated more than 80% of the file
bja
Runa: thx, i think i'll download the pootle file, do a grep on somestuff then correct it on the website if it is wrong.
Runa
bja: great, you can also upload the po file again on pootle, or email tor-translation@torproject.org

Hi, for some reason I just cannot connect to tor :S It was fine last time I used it but now just won't connect. It's not my OS since it doesn't work on the amnesia live cd either. In the message log tor opens the circuit and 100%bootstraps but thats it.. it just never connects. I get a socket operation time out error message.
Sebastian
tulip: maybe you can pastebin the exact error message
tulip
theres no error message in the logs, just vidalia pops up saying tor cannot connect and it has "socket operation time out" in brackets
no other info
this is with the latest version of tor but it also is happening with the release before that
Sebastian
ok so if there is nothing in the logs, how does it say 100% bootstrapped?
I think I'm misunderstanding you a bit.

thats is all it says
tor never connects
Sebastian
Well, getting that message means that Tor has just connected.
So while I believe you that something is not working, it surely isn't that Tor cannot connect.
Maybe explain how you are starting stuff
tulip
but the status is still on connecting to tor
Sebastian
the status?
tulip
uh.. i click on vidalia and it opens up tor. It has always worked before, this has just only started happening
vidalias status
Sebastian
Maybe you can provide a screenshot
With the error message
tulip
ok
ill be a couple mins have to go afk first, sorry.
Sebastian
no worries.

Sebastian
ok
when you close Vidalia, is there a Tor process running on your system?
tulip
no
Sebastian
hm ok
There is a #vidalia channel
people there might be able to help you bette
r
but you have to be patient, I'm afraid. Not very active
tulip
ok, so this isn't a tor issue right? My isp hasn't done something stupid and blocked tor or something?
Sebastian
I think this is likely a Vidalia bug
Or a Tor bug
Or a packaging bug.
But it should have nothing to do with your internet connection
tulip
Its just got me confused cause everything was working fine last time I used it last week, I haven't changed anything. Thanks for your help anyway.
Sebastian
Good luck, sorry I don't know the solution
tulip
One last thing.. so 100%boot strapped basically means I'm connected to tor, right?
Sebastian
yes
OFFShare
Do we pick relays that are not in the cache-consensus file ?
Sebastian
OFFShare: nope
OFFShare
hmm, connection_or_digest_is_known_relay
Sebastian
OFFShare: even if you have descriptors for other relays, those aren't running
OFFShare
Sebastian: I don't know that, but why the second test ?
and "router_get_by_digest" is used constantly in the source.

"those aren't running" so why should i pick a not-running relay ?
Sebastian
I'll have time to look at the code in a bit

thanks, no hurry..

hi
I want to install tor on debian
I see I need to install polipo, but I already have squid
so, ?
will polipo confilict with squid?
arma
it shouldn't conflict, no
and you don't need polipo, if you like your squid enough
misc
squid can forward to socks ?
arma
no idea.
SwissTorExit
arma: look the last master git more stable again as server, i dunno as client but it look working like early
arma
good
SwissTorExit
i will told you as client next days but i must have more time to can have a opinion, as server are sure :P
arma
i imagine tor sucks as a client this month
too many users, not enough relays
which is causing the relays we do have to shut down under the load, which just makes things worse
SwissTorExit
yeah but like you said,, if the network are unstable, it's pretty hard to have good circuits
Sebastian
hs sure have been suffering from much churn in the consensus
SwissTorExit
yeah, sad think, and coast opne new exit, i looking about, be ready to have and without be sue but actually i have too much to paid :/
but it will be up in the next two months maximum
now i have upgarded my newtwork to fiber, so it was my first prioroty :d
priority*
what's are a surpise for me, it's that my client use some relay in my country now, as almost never before
