Fix in Whonix’s repository: Tor no longer starts after upgrade / no Tor pid error – Testers wanted!

Whonix’s testes repository has been updated.

See Whonix APT Repository wiki page to find out how to enable Whonix’s testers repository.

This change is supposed to be soon added to Whonix’s stable repository.

Please help testing it!


– anon-gw-anonymizer-config: Fixed startup of Tor due to an AppArmor conflict as per bug reports in the forums,559.0.html. Needed to out commented “/usr/bin/obfsproxy rix,” in file “/etc/apparmor.d/local/system_tor.anondist” because The Tor Project added “/usr/bin/obfsproxy PUx,” to file “/etc/apparmor.d/abstractions/tor”. Therefore users of obfsproxy will now end up running obfsproxy unconfined, because we would now require a standalone obfsproxy AppArmor profile. Note, that this is not a Whonix specific issue. Also if you were using plain Debian, no one redistributes an obfsproxy AppArmor profile at time of writing.
