Tor on the Nokia N900 (Maemo) GSM telephone
We're always working on expanding the number of different devices and platforms where Tor runs. Today we've published an installation document that should help users of the Nokia N900 telephone to use the Tor network.
Tor is configured as a client by default. The Tor status applet will also run privoxy and configure the system wide preferences appropriately while Tor is enabled. Transparent proxying is not possible with the default N900 kernels at this time.
Please note that this is an experimental configuration. The web browser on the N900 does not have the protections that Torbutton provides.
For basic circumvention needs this configuration should be usable out of the box. At the moment, we're not seriously investigating Torbutton support for the N900 mobile web browser. If there is significant user demand for a mobile Torbutton this may change.
Many thanks to the fine folks at synthesize.us for their help in the production of the N900 documentation.
I've got no idea where to post this, I can't seem to find any sort of support forum (HINT! make one, or if you have one, be blatent on linking to it!)
I installed libevent fine and Tor seems to say it finds it, but, Tor craps out at:
./configure && make
checking for u_int8_t... yes
checking for libevent directory... (system)
checking whether we need extra options to link libevent... configure: error: Found linkable libevent in (system), but it does not seem to run, even with -R. Maybe specify another using --with-libevent-dir}
I was using these pages to install a relay:
Anyone have a clue where to go next? I did the usual Googling, but nothing comes up on how to fix this (or what it even means).
