It is not removed. It's just integrated, thus there are no two binaries anymore and the config option is obsolete (and removed). Just build RS normally like you always did and you still can use automatic tor setup.

Can you give me a link detailing removal of retrotor? I don't understand what it is or why it is to be removed. It seems cyril recommends using RS over TOR if you connect to nontrusted friends.

Which way is the recommended way to do this in Arch? The way I described in the wiki?

You you need to add CONFIG+=retrotor to the qmake call. E.g. change qmake CONFIG-=debug CONFIG+=release \ to qmake CONFIG-=debug CONFIG+=release CONFIG+=retrotor \

Since i'm not using this i don't want to maintain an extra package for that. Feel free do to so on you own. Also keep in mind that with the -git version or the next release there is no extra retrotor version anymore.

From Anmo in Chatserver EN regarding migration clearnet->tor:

09:44 anmo: on the crate new node wizard

09:45 anmo: turn on advanced mode, then the use existing profile

09:46 anmo: to move your friend list into the new location:

09:48 anmo: network tab --> right click on friend list --> export fiend list

09:48 anmo: do the same on your new node, but with importing

09:48 random: if you had any tor peers you will be able to contact them only

09:49 anmo: they can reach you if they have tor proxy installed

09:50 anmo: but they won't know about your new location

09:51 anmo: befriending yourself on your new and old node, and running both at the same time for a while can fix this

@sehraf I'm sorry, I don't understand what to do with CONFIG+=retrotor, is it to be inserted on this line:

qmake   CONFIG-=debug CONFIG+=release \


I propose we make a package called retroshare-tor with this flag set by default. Then we can also track its userbase :)

Using CONFIG+=retrotor you can build a version that automatically sets up tor. So there is no need to manually do that. Of course you can still do it by hand if you want to. In the current master retrotor is integrated into RS so there is only one version and you can pick automatic tor setup during location creation. Yes, there is no way to migrate a non-tor location to tor.

The license in the PKGBUILD seems wrong. Should be "GPL2".

hubbi commented on 2018-09-08 07:19

Updated with hidden service configuration, could somebody check if it is correct?

I'm unsure about whether it is possible to migrate a clearnet-.retroshare-identity to Retroshare-Tor, but assume it is NOT possible.

hubbi commented on 2018-09-08 06:28

I would like a package with Retroshare-Tor which depends on Tor and gives advices on how to set up a hidden node. Anybody already done work on this?

hubbi commented on 2018-09-07 13:27

compiled just fine with makepkg and gcc8. :D

pacaur is most probable source of error now - I leave the pieces to you...
