Please note: This is an alpha release. You should only try this one if you are interested in tracking Tor development, testing new features, making sure that Tor still builds on unusual platforms, or generally trying to hunt down bugs. If you want a stable experience, please stick to the stable releases.

can you try adding LimitMEMLOCK=infinity to the service file, without setting CAP_SYS_RESOURCE

Cbhihe commented on 2020-11-14 18:50

Running on 5.9.8-arch1-1 and just like @PrinceMachiavelli, I added CAP_SYS_RESOURCE to CapabilityBoundingSet inside the file /usr/lib/systemd/system/tor.service to get tor.service to start.

Otherwise I got the following error: "Unable to raise RLIMIT_MEMLOCK: Operation not permitted"

After adding the capability in the service unit file, make sure to disable/enable your service to rebuild the symlink.

BTW, the same thing occurs when executing the community/tor package instead of the AUR one...

Added option for building the rust modules

Added %include /etc/tor/torrc.d/ directive with some commonly used options to avoid cluttering the main torrc file


_branch can be uncommented to build the stable version

I had to add CAP_SYS_RESOURCE to CapabilityBoundingSet in order to get the tor service to start otherwise I got the following error:

"Unable to raise RLIMIT_MEMLOCK: Operation not permitted"
