Updated Tor Browser Packages

149 words by gman999 written on 2015–10–31, last edit: 2017–09–03, tags: openbsd, tor-browser

The upstream code from the Tor Project and above them Mozilla are moving targets we contend with each release. Then there is the ultimate moving target: the incessant war between surveillance and anonymity censorship and circumvention. Finally there is the operating system as a moving target all Tor Browser porters face. … read more

TB 5.0.3 Packages Updated, Again

123 words by gman999 written on 2015–11–11, last edit: 2017–09–03, tags: openbsd, porting, tor-browser

The a href “http://mirrors.nycbug.org/pub/snapshots/packages/amd64/” Tor Browser 5. .3 packages were updated again due to the need for icu4c version 56.1. Both devel/nspr and textproc/icu4c are updated in the OpenBSD ports tree and the TB packages have been rebuilt for them. Be sure to make sure packages or ports are updated before installing. If the host is updated there’s no need to use our devel/nspr or textproc/icu4c packages. … read more

Onto the Next Phase

256 words by gman999 written on 2016–02–16, last edit: 2017–09–03, tags: openbsd, tor-browser

The progress we’ve made over the past five days was exhausting yet exciting.

Some very significant steps were made with Tor Browser. A revised 5.5 release does not contain the start-tor-browser script any longer all the necessary setup steps are now done with Javascript including the profile setup. The Firefox add-ons are now dumped into the profile as files such as https-everywhere eff.org.xpi instead of being extracted into directories. Additionally we are now building an i386 version of TB. … read more

TB 5.5 and More New Snapshots

204 words by gman999 written on 2016–02–21, last edit: 2017–09–03, tags: openbsd, tor-browser

Yesterday the OpenBSD snapshots updated to 1881 for amd64 and 16 9 for i386. TB is working fine on both.

Meanwhile the TB packages were updated. First we implemented a meta TB package as per landry ’s comments. Note that the start-tor-browser script was also deprecated recently. All the sloppy setup gook was replaced by neater Firefox hacks. … read more

Tor Browser Ports for 5.5 Tagged

388 words by gman999 written on 2016–02–05, last edit: 2017–09–03, tags: openbsd, tor-browser

I just merged 5.5 onto master and tagged it. This release was much easier after the work on 5. .6 which has us using mozilla.port.mk instead of a bunch of cut-and-paste adapted from same. This makes things a lot easier moving forward. So far 5.5 on amd64 is looking good. … read more

TB 5.5 on the Current Snapshots

408 words by gman999 written on 2016–03–31, last edit: 2017–09–03, tags: openbsd, tor-browser

As of last week’s OpenBSD’s i386 and amd64 snapshots TB 5.5 is no longer working.

We are looking to start building the Tor Project’s most recent TB soon. Spending time on TB 5.5 is fruitless when 5.5.4 is the current TP release. … read more

229 words by gman999 written on 2016–06–29, last edit: 2017–09–03, tags: meetconf, openbsd, project, tor-browser

This blog remained silent over the past several months despite a flurry of very significant TDP activities.

The accomplishments are not reducible to a single blog entry but here are summaries of the more interesting:

There was continued development and the release of several Tor Browser versions. Packages for 6. and 6. .2 the current version were produced. The OpenBSD packages for both amd64 and i386 are available at http://mirror.nycbug.org/pub/snapshots/packages/{amd64 i386}. With feedback from the OpenBSD ports mailing list another version of TB 6. .2 is in the works. … read more
