The issue reported by shashilx still exists with this package. I've found the soluiton he describes to be correct. Could it be integrated into this package?

I've just adopted this package. In case of known issues, please let me know.

after some research found that file /etc/conf.d/redsocks must be created, containing REDSOCKS_CONF=/etc/redsocks.conf

I've made some significant changes to the current package including using the official repo (the libevent2 fix was merged quite a while ago), running redsocks as its own user/group (to restrict its privileges) and generally aligning the package style to that of packages in the official repos (based on dnsmasq and bitlbee). Please review and merge:

Hm, darkk didn't update it yet, so I switched the package to bjin's repo.

chx, thanks for the info. I'll wait few more days - maybe darkk will pull the fix for libevent2 into main repo.

You need to get redsocks from (git clone -b libevent2-fix for now 'cos the original won't compile.
