Privoxy 2.9.16

Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby strampke » Thu Jan 06, 2005 7:31 pm

Hi,

I have ported Privoxy 2.9.16 to Freesco 0.3.x
It is a tarball.
You can download it from <a href='http://strampke.mine.nu/downloads/privoxy-2.9.16-0.3.x-ported.tgz' target='_blank'>http://strampke.mine.nu/downloads/privoxy-....3.x-ported.tgz</a>
There is no install/uninstall script yet. On my Freesco 0.3.x it works fine, but consider it as b?ta.
Code: Select all
cd /mnt/bootdev/router
snarf -n http://strampke.mine.nu/downloads/privoxy-2.9.16-0.3.x-ported.tgz
tar -tvf privoxy-2.9.16-0.3.x-ported.tgz  to check the contents
tar -tvf privoxy-2.9.16-0.3.x-ported.tgz  to unpack
edit /mnt/bootdev/router/pkg/usr/local/privoxy/etc/config
search for 'uncomment'  twice  adapt, save and reboot

On your browser go to tools->options->connection settings->manual settings (or advanced)
Set http-proxy and ssl proxy to your routers IP and port to 8118

Off you go.

To adapt the privoxy settings go to www.p.p When privoxy is configured right you will find settings there.

Any comments are welcome.

Remark 1:Read this <a href='http://dingetje.homeip.net/faq/index.php?action=artikel&cat=1&id=58' target='_blank'>FAQ</a> and you'll understand that:

Code: Select all
cd /mnt/bootdev/router


can be typed as:
Code: Select all
cd /boot


and:

Code: Select all
edit /mnt/bootdev/router/pkg/usr/local/privoxy/etc/config


can be written as:

Code: Select all
edit /usr/local/privoxy/etc/config


just like a *BIG* linux! (which was the whole purpose of the 03x path restructuring to begin with).

Remark 2:
You have given the tarball the extension .tgz suggesting it's a gzipped tar file (read this <a href='http://dingetje.homeip.net/faq/index.php?action=artikel&cat=3&id=141' target='_blank'>FAQ</a>), but in fact it's just packaged by the tar command, so it *should* have the extension .tar

Remark 3:
Good job! :)

Just one comment about Dingetje's remarks. They should not really be considered a suggestion, but rather a REQUIREMENT. The reason is because with the varying ways that FREESCO can be configured if you use the absolute PATH it will break under certain conditions and ONLY the short PATH through /boot or through /usr/ will always work.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestions (REQUIREMENTS)
2 years of Freesco and still no grip on it, though it's beginning to dawn at the end of the tube.
My learning curve isn't very steep you see.

But now the good news.
Code: Select all
pkg -i http://strampke.mine.nu/packages/privoxy-2.9.16-0.3.x-ported
works.

To further clarify: it is Dingetjes package, ported with the help of Lightnings packager.

I ported 2.9.16 because privoxy 3.0.2 for Freesco 0.3.x is slow.
unfortunately Privoxy 3.0.2 won't work with pthread enabled, which greatly reduces it's filtering speed. Without POSIX thread support, Privoxy really taxes the system.

Which can be found in <a href='http://forums.freesco.org/support/index.php?act=ST&f=2&t=8563&hl=privoxy' target='_blank'>this thread.</a>
Deorens explication on how to compile privoxy 3.0.2 is one step beyond for me, so I ported.

Hi,

Thanks for this package. I have requested it long time a go. Good job.

I installed and it blocks <a href='http://forums.freesco.org/support/' target='_blank'>http://forums.freesco.org/support/</a>
Is it me again or is this the way it is supposed to work?
Do others have the same problem?
