To clarify, we assume user in Whonix will run Tor using sudo but under user, right? If so, there is no need to and we should not remove User debian-tor from default torrc because everything just works as expected. :slight_smile:

Whonix runs Tor under systemd unit file by tor package with defaults
torrc by tor package. We don’t run Tor using sudo.

As for tor verify config: whatever works.

TODO: Better error and debugging report should be provided. Patrick has reminded me about this for a while. :sweat_smile:

Could you post a Debian RFP (request for packaging) for ACW please?

Do you think you could get ACW uploaded to packages.debian.org?

And or do you think you could in long term become a Debian maintainer?

Once we got a “foot into the door” in packages.debian.org this could help immensely simplifying Whonix contributions, I think:

  • upload genmkfile
  • upload anon-shared-helper-scripts

Then ACW could depend on anon-shared-helper-scripts without causing dependency troubles for contributors.

I would love to post a RFP. But I think anon-connection-wizard is not generic, robust, beautiful enough to get into Debian, currently. I will focus on the further improvement after Whonix 14 is released. And then do a RFP. :slight_smile:


Yes! That is a secret desire of mine.


I totally agree.

I am not sure if it generic enough to be uploaded to Debian. But, well we have a goal now. :slight_smile:

Trying to fix auxiliary issue in bootstrap phase: unknown bootstrap tag. in most cases this is harmless please contact support

Hello,
in the anon_connection_wizard.py file (https://github.com/Whonix/anon-connection-wizard/blob/master/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/anon_connection_wizard/anon_connection_wizard.py), at 1590 row, is there a “except selftem.connection.IncorrectCookieSize :” Maybe the correct form is not selftem but should be stem, right?
For the next Tor updates (as the 0.4.5.7) maybe you could get an error like “RuntimeError: dictionary keys changed during iteration”. If it happens, just edit the “/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/stem/control.py ” file by changing the 2273 row to “for key in list(reply): ” (so, adding list() ) Source: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11941817/how-to-avoid-runtimeerror-dictionary-changed-size-during-iteration-error

Let me know if this fix will be applied.

Thank you

Thanks!

Did you experience that issue?

Whonix for VirtualBox - 15.0.1.7.2 - Point Release - Testers Wanted! contains:

anon-info


INFO: version of the ‘tor’ package: 0.4.5.7-1~d10.buster+1

Didn’t have such an issue but then perhaps you tested this more? Or did a code review?

dpkg -S /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/stem/control.py

python3-stem: /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/stem/control.py

That package is maintained by The Tor Project (upstream).

Could you please check if that if fixed upstream? If not, report a bug upstream?
