Remove Polipo or replace it with Privoxy
Originally created by Tails on #5379 (Redmine)
Privoxy + Tor configuration examples:
- according to Jacob, the Tor project uses Privoxy when they need a HTTP proxy; he sent us a configuration file he trusts to be safe using with Tor in the "Switch to Privoxy?" thread on tails-dev (Sun, 25 Mar 2012 11:12:12 –0700) and another one, based on Liberte’s one but simplified (Sun, 25 Mar 2012 23:15:11 +0200)
- Orbot uses Privoxy
- Liberte uses Privoxy
OTOH, best would probably be to simply remove Polipo. Apart of using torsocks for apt-get and wget, what needs to be done?
APT: a rough initial test was done, that added a
/usr/lib/apt/methodsIIRC, to add torsocks in the loop. It worked fairly well, but one of the late
live-buildscripts insists on running APT, which fails in this configuration.
